Let’s just get this out of the way. The lamps are beautiful, but we also want you to look past them.

Sure, lamps and lamp-making are at the core of our workshops. It’s what makes us unique! But if that’s all we did, OrLanu would just be a wonderful art project. And it’s so much more than that! “Light” is the unifying theme of our workshops. Lamp-making is our way of expressing that theme. We surround the lamp-making with wisdom-sharing, reflection and community. And the finished lamps allow participants to “take the workshop home” with them.

While the finished lamps are stunning, their true beauty is as vehicles for meaning-making, intention-making, light-making…for sharing wisdom, inspiring, providing comfort. They’re beacons: luminous reminders to bring more light to the world.
