If like many people you get hooked on making lampshades and want to take it a step further, then after a short lunch break, you can join us in the afternoon of Saturday November 11th for a follow on workshop where you’ll learn how to tackle a double-sided lampshade. This workshop is the perfect follow-on from our introduction class.

In this half day class (3 hours) Shalma with demonstrate a range of more advanced techniques which you will get to try out for yourself on your own double sided lampshade, ready to take home at the end of the class. Everything will be provided except the fabric.  (Although we will have some fabric available for purchase on the day). If bringing your own fabric, please contact us to check that you have sufficient fabric for the style you have in mind.

This workshop costs £40 extra, and this price includes the lampshade kit, but excludes the cost of fabric.

Had a wonderful few hours at the 'Make a Lampshade' workshop. Was made to feel very welcome and came away with a lovely new handmade lampshade and the ability to make more.
