LAMPSHADE MAKING

Lampshade making

Learn the art of lampshade making in this fun workshop.

Create the perfect piece for your home or why not make one as a gift!

This workshop is perfect for anyone who loves to craft.

You will leave with a completed lampshade and all the skills and knowledge you need to make more at home.

What is included:

  • 1 x 30cm lampshade kit per person
  • Use of all tools needed
  • Expert tuition

Please Note: Participants will need to bring along the fabric for their lampshades. A cotton or linen of light-medium weight is the best. Choose a funky print for a real statement piece or select something more subtle for a more classic look. You will need about half a metre (100cm wide by 26cm long minimum). If the fabric’s print is directional, the longer measurement must fit horizontally across the design.
