Home Improvement: How to Rewire A Light Fixture CHICAGO

09/29/2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT

Have a favorite lamp or fixture that stopped working? Come learn how to bring it back to life.

Want to reuse those light fixtures but aren’t sure if they’re safe? Light fixtures often come with frayed, cracked, and/or missing wiring which may present an unsafe or inoperable installation. In this hands-on how-to workshop you will learn how to replace damaged or missing wiring for a safe, functional installation.


Bring your own fixture or shop RX for a light fixture (50% off with workshop registration)

Learn how to disassemble, rewire and reassemble your fixture

Learn what parts may be required to install your fixture

Prior to the workshop please email a photo of your fixture to indigo@rebuildingexchange.org and include any known issues with your fixture like a missing or broken part.

All materials are included in the class fee.

*Please note, on rare occasions fixures may be beyond repair or require professional services.

Please read the workshop policies below!



If you can’t make it to a class, you can transfer your ticket to someone else. Please email indigo@rebuildingexchange.org with their name and email address.

If Rebuilding Exchange needs to cancel a workshop, we will notify you 24 hours before the class and give you the option of refund or reschedule.

Your safety is our highest priority at Rebuilding Exchange, so we have put safety protocols in place for all of our in-person workshops to keep everyone safe. Those protocols are:

  • Reduced class sizes (no more than 8 participants in a class).
  • All instructors, assistants, and participants are no longer required to wear masks while attending workshops, but we still strongly encourage them (we do not have enough masks to provide to everyone, so you must provide your own mask).
  • Instructors and participants may be required to have their temperature taken (using a touchless thermometer) prior to the start of the class.
  • Social distancing will be implemented when possible and appropriate.
  • Breaks will be provided during the class for handwashing.
  • Everyone should follow recommended safety precautions, such as coughing into your elbow and refraining from touching their face.
  • All of the tools, equipment, door handles, cabinet and drawer handles, etc. that are touched will be disinfected both before and after the workshop.
