Make a paper lampshade from a your own paper collage design



Come and make a fabulous paper lampshade! A Papershades workshop lasts about three hours. In that time, you'll learn how to use paper collage to create a unique design on an A4 card template. All the paper and materials are provided along with expert tuition from collage artist Ros Freeborn. Once your paper design is made, Ros will print it onto five panels of A4 Papershades paper. You'll then cut out each panel and use the two special Papershades wheels to hold the lampshade together. And voila! you will have created a stunning and bespoke paper lampshade the world has never seen before. Perfect for your home or a special gift.

What's included in the price?

All the materials are included. You will be given your own personal box of paper to choose from but can also rummage through supplies of tissue paper, printed tissue, wrapping paper, wallpaper, magazines... there is a lot of paper to choose from at a Papershades workshop! You'll stick everything down with PVA glue or glue-sticks and have the fun of creating something no one has ever made before. All this is fuelled by plentiful tea, coffee and, most importantly, Papershades Cake!
