The 7 Lamps of Making re-visits John Ruskin’s essay The 7 Lamps of Architecture, as a guide for 21st century making - translating 19th century craft theory into a contemporary design project. Ruskin used the word “Lamps“ to mean guides. These “Lamps” are objectified as tangible examples of the 7 guides in practice - as critical objects that embody the enduring principles of good craftsmanship.                    

Adopting the vocabulary of the Maker Movement the project renders the principles relevant to makers now - using readily available democratic tools and materials such as 3D printing, LED lighting, laser cutters and kit electronics. The 7 Lamps of Making places the New Maker Movement in historical context, recognizing and disseminating the relevant craft values that have, and remain, necessary to make things of quality.
