Gil Stancourt Lighting Studio

Gil Stancourt says he'll put a light bulb in anything. Take one look around his studio and you'll believe him. The born tinkerer, who built his first lamp at the age of 12, has spent the last quarter century restoring antique lamps and designing original lighting fixtures, and in that time he's custom-made crystal fixtures, reproductions of cathedral chandeliers, and even art objects from repurposed items. Gil's specialty is bringing back to life antique lamps, which he can convert into more eco-friendly fixtures by retrofitting them to use energy-efficient GU-24 compact fluorescent bulbs and to not shine directly in the eyes of an endangered species that's trying to get some rest.

The lighting master shares his expertise in instructional classes, during which students learn basic wiring techniques and proper tool usage by constructing their own lamp from a wine bottle and other materials.

Very basic class and good for beginners. Gil is very knowledgable yet able to teach variable levels in the group.
Tina V. · September 14, 2014
Fun experience with a great teacher. Gil is funny, patient, generous, and knowledgeable. Class was over in two hours, not three.
Barbara C. · August 10, 2014
Gil was full of information; covering a lot of background knowledge useful to wiring a lamp and generally understanding what we encounter electrically all the time. He makes it easy to understand and do. He does have equipment that makes it easier... but what professional doesn't!
