Learn to make a gorgeous double-sided, fabric-covered drum lampshade, finished to a professional standard! You can choose to make either a 20 or 30cm lampshade for either a hanging pendant light or a table lamp base to suit your room decor perfectly. Enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, tea and biscuits, and get stuck into a new hobby!
Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The workshop runs for approximately 2½ hours.
The price includes tools and materials except the fabric, which you will need to bring with you (though there will be a small selection available to purchase on the day).
It's a double-sided shade, so you'll need 2 pieces of fabric; one for the inside, one for the outside. A woven fabric without stretch is best (we recommend cotton, linen or poly blends). Both pieces of fabric will need to be at least 30cm wide x 100cm long (just ask your fabric supplier to cut 30cm; the length of your piece of fabric will be the standard width of the roll).
2½ hours (flexible times to suit)

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. Wendy was patient and very knowledgeable and we achieved a really professional finish to our lampshades! Defining going to make more and attend more workshops with Wendy.
Fantastic course would highly recommend it. Total zone out for three hours, enjoyed Wendy humour and her patience. The lampshade look fantastic. What I like is Wendy attention to detail, she provides techniques/tips for a professional finish and helped me achieve this. So pleased and very chuffed with my personalised lampshade.
