How to Rewire a Light Fixture EVANSTON

01/06/2024 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CST

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 Rebuilding Exchange 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 nancy@evanstonrebuildingwarehouse.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 fixtures may be beyond repair or require professional services.
