About the Course

Learn all the tricks of the trade from a professional lampshade maker. The workshop will be held in the Teddington studio of Caroline B Designs who specialise in making bespoke lampshades.
This 1 day masterclass will cover all the key techniques involved in making a stretched and lined fabric lampshade.

At the end of the day you will have your own unique lampshade to take home, suitable for a table lamp.

You will learn traditional lampshade making skills including binding the frame, stretching and fitting fabric to frame, handstitching, creating a balloon lining, and making bias trims.
Basic sewing skills required.
