This class is perfect for beginners who want to learn how to make a contemporary drum style lampshade. You’ll learn how to apply the lampshade PVC backing to your fabric, attach the rings and create neat, rolled edges. You can choose to make either a 20cm or 30cm diameter fabric lampshade which can be used on a lamp base or ceiling pendant. By the end of the workshop, you will get to go home with your very own bespoke lampshade and will have all the skills to create many more beautiful shades.

The cost of your ticket includes all you will need for the class apart from fabric, which you will need to bring along with you (ironed if possible)

Your fabric will need to be one of the following,

  • For a 20cm size lampshade you will need a 75cm x 25cm piece of fabric
  • For a 30cm size lampshade you will need a 110cm x 30cm piece of fabric

We recommend using a light to medium weight fabric, either a cotton, poly cotton or a linen/cotton mix. This is a great opportunity to re-purpose some old fabric or buy something new to match you existing colour scheme.

Suitable for adults only (16+).

Tea and coffee will be provided. Bring your own lunch or you can purchase from the café.
