ABOUT MICHAEL AKA 'MISTER UPSWITCH'

“I’ve always loved collecting old stuff – things that other’s throw away or have no use for anymore. It breaks my heart to see so much hard rubbish thrown out into the streets, ready to go into landfill. So I started collecting things and fixing them to be reused or rehomed. Then I discovered a growing community of DIY-ers online who were reinventing discarded objects into amazing and useful new things, and felt an urge to start getting more creative with all of my old stuff. From there I started making upcycled lamps using anything I could think of, and now I’m always thinking of new ideas and ways to reuse forgotten objects.“

Really enjoyable session on making our own lamp! Michael was very knowledgable and kept the pace going really well for the session to ensure that we had a completed lamp at the end of the evening!

This was such a great night. Michael is a great teacher, as that's his other job, and very clear in his directions. And the result is a lamp I adore. I had a wonderful time, I was so happy with the result, and I would not hesitate to sign up for another course by Michael. (In fact, I plan to!)
