Lampshade Workshop With Gillian Arnold

Lampshade Workshop With Gillian Arnold

About the Course

Join Gillian Arnold for a fun packed evening of lampshade making and wow your friends with a statement interior lighting accent when you tell them, “I made it myself.” Set in our beautiful industrial modern and botanically infused shops in the hearts of Darlington and Bishop Auckland. Gillian has been running professional workshops across the country for over 6 years, with a wealth of experience under her belt you will be in great hands.

What does the course cover?
You will be producing high quality, professionally finished lampshade from start to finish that you will take home with you, along with the knowledge and ability to make your own lampshades at home. The default lampshade will be 20cm wide by 24cm deep and ideal on a table lamp stand, unless you choose to upgrade to a larger size.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

We provide all the necessary tools, equipment and skills that you will need, so all you need to bring is your own fabric (optional) and a can-do attitude (mandatory.) You can choose to make the lampshade either as a pendant (ceiling) or table on the night.

You will also have the choice to purchase some of Gillian's fabric, along with some of her personally curated selection. You can also choose to make a wider diameter 30cm or 45cm lampshade, though the height remains 24cm. If you want to to make a larger lampshade, please let us know in advance so we can ensure we have the correct parts for you.

To increase the lampshade diameter, it is +£5 for the 30cm, or +£10 for the 45cm.
To purchase some of Gillian's fabric, it is +£5 for 20cm/30cm lampshades, or +£7.50 for 45cm.

These are charged separately, so to increase to a 45cm AND buy some of Gillian's fabric would be a further £17.50.

You can pay for the upgrades at the class itself, or in advance at our Darlington shop, or over the phone.
