I spent last Saturday doing this printing and lampshade workshop with my daughter. We had a lovely day with Ria teaching us all the new skills needed to produce a unique and very lovely lampshade.
Ria's enthusiasm, helpfulness and creativity made the day fly by and it was a day I would certainly repeat and recommend. Lunch in the restaurant in the courtyard was good too!
Thank you

I loved Ria’s lampshade making course. It was fun and informal and Ria was so helpful both with the practical side and also tapping into our ideas in order to bring them to life.
