Registration from 18:30 for a 19:00 start.

For all of you who missed Paul’s workshop on the Handbook at [d]arc Room during London Design Week, he is repeating it here in Bristol – UK design central!

No, Paul isn’t intending to take you through all 500 pages of the new Lighting Handbook – just the design orientated bits. But he will also give an overview to allow you to see where his extracts fit into the overall structure of the book and reveal some of the more peculiar aspects of lighting - why flour mills explode and how atmospheric solvents can eat your luminaires!
