A great opportunity to get creative without leaving the house! Additional kits and fabric panels can be purchased and sent once your booking has been received.
"Learning how to make a lampshade is so satisfying", says Helen. "You start with a flat rectangular shaped piece of fabric and can't imagine quite how you are going to turn it into a beautiful shade with crisp tidy edges. After just a short time, you realise it's going to be one of those things that you just want to do again...I get lots of repeat bookings!"
I did this workshop online last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although I had no previous experience of doing anything like this, I now have a lampshade which looks just as good as any you could buy in a shop. Helen is a great teacher and I would highly recommend this to anybody
So pleased you enjoyed the workshop Jo, it was great fun, wasn't it and pleased you have learnt a new skill!
This is a lovely creative workshop and I would recommend it to anybody, even if you haven't made anything before. Helen is a great teacher, very patient, and her instructions are very clear to follow along with. A really enjoyable experience and a great sense of achievement to finish up with a lampshade you've made yourself - thank you!
I did this course today and really enjoyed it. I have never made a lampshade before and ended up with a lampshade that looked like it could pass for a bought one! I was quietly rather pleased and will be ordering another kit to make a second. Helen was a very good teacher, explaining each step very clearly and patiently waiting if anyone got behind. It was a great way to spend a productive few hours learning something new. I would highly recommend it. Thank you Helen.
This was such a delightful experience and the hour and a half went by so quickly! The instructions were very clear and it was easy to follow along when Helen showed us what to do. I absolutely love my lampshade and can’t wait to display it. Thank you!
... I did this course online today having done the studio version a few years back ... it was just as much fun and so enjoyable even online ... Helen is a great teacher; so patient, great at integrating everyone and brilliant at showing how things should be done as well as giving out lots of helpful tips ... this worked as well online as it does face-to-face - once you get used to the upside down, back to front nature of things - and made for a fantastic morning ... so nice to have people from further afield which is one of the benefits of online ... and the best bit of all, at the end of the session as well having had fun you have a beautiful piece for your home or as a gift ... even if you're a bit slow and cackhanded like me ... would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get creative, make something useful and have a great time
So pleased you enjoyed the online workshop Sara, your shade looked great!
