Have you ever wanted to make a lampshade to match your soft furnishings, or transform that piece of vintage fabric into something useful? This relaxed and supportive 3 hour, morning or afternoon workshop, introduces you to the simple techniques and tools required to make a basic 30cms drum lampshade (other sizes/heights available by prior arrangement). A range of attractive modern/vintage/African cotton print fabrics are available for you to choose from. Cannot make it to me? For a minimum of 2 people, I am happy to travel to you for a workshop in your own home within a 10-mile radius (mileage in excess of this would incur travel expenses). Hen do? Are you looking for an alternative fun afternoon.......special offer of a free bottle of prosecco is included in the price with a minimum of 5 students attending. The courses are relaxed so you can work at your own pace with plenty of friendly support and guidance, taught by Vanessa, an experienced teacher.

What's included in the price?

Endless tea and coffee are available plus a 30cm diameter Drum Lampshade kit with fabric and use of my tools. Embellishments like braiding or additional kits are an extra cost.
