Lampshade Making Workshop

Make TWO beautiful drum shades in this wonderful Lampshade Making Workshop. During the workshop you will have the opportunity to make two shades –  30cm and a 20cm diameter drum design. You can bring your own fabric or buy Helen’s ready cut, hand printed linen lampshade panels.

Suitable for beginners, Helen will demonstrate a step by step approach allowing you to work at your own speed. Plenty of time for questions and lots of top tips to get that professional finish.

Tea, coffee and cake will be provided during the lampshade workshop.

“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…that’s why we make two lampshades during the workshop!”

    Hi Helen,
    A rather belated email to say thank you so much for the brilliant workshop last Saturday. I know I can speak for Margo and Sam too, we had a really wonderful time and were all very pleased with our creations.
    Best wishes.

    Helen’s workshop is wonderful- She is a calm, positive and encouraging instructor. It is so satisfying to learn a new skill and I am extremely proud of my two very professional looking lampshades.
    I brought my own fabric to use but when I saw Helen’s exquisite hand printed linens I quickly changed my mind. The hardest part was choosing which colour and pattern to use.
    Thank you Helen for generously sharing your skill and expertise with me.

    I really enjoyed the half-day workshop, thoroughly absorbed in creating two beautiful lampshades that I have put to immediate use at home. Lovely fabrics to choose from and the shades look very professional so I was very pleased with them. Thanks Helen!

    Had a fantastic time with Helen; created two beautiful lampshades from her gorgeous linen printed fabrics! Helen was extremely friendly, generous and professional. The lampshades have taken pride of place at home! Thank you Helen.

    Helen, sincere thanks for an excellent 1/2 day lampshade making. You always make things so clear and simple to follow with your demonstrations and one on one tuition where necessary. I left the session with two lampshades that looked very professional and which I would be thrilled to show off to friends.

    My daughter and I had a really absorbing and creative afternoon at this lovely workshop. Helen was really friendly and patient. We learned something completely new and came away with something useful and attractive …. and feeling really pleased with ourselves. Many thanks
