If you want to learn the full range of skills and techniques in lampshade making, this course is for you. The course incorporates all the skills of traditional and modern lampshade making over five days of intensive, yet relaxed and fun, tuition. You’ll have the opportunity to create beautiful, original pieces that will add ambience and atmosphere to your home. In addition to traditional shades, I am delighted to add the modern drum lampshade to the sessions. The drum lampshade brings a contemporary feel to a home and it is the ideal shade for a wide range of interiors. Lampshades come in a wide range of beautiful and unique styles, each with their own function and personality and learning to make them is incredibly rewarding. In this 5 day workshop, you’ll learn… . Modern drum lampshade including creating templates for tapered lampshades . Traditional tailored lampshade . Pleated lampshade . Gathered lampshade . Balloon lining . Pleated or gathered lining . Demonstration of exterior lining for ornate frames such as dome, tiffany and square frames . Hand-sewn bias trim . Demonstration of various cover and assembling techniques for ornate and awkward frame shapes . Business related topics such as pricing and selling your lampshades By the end of the workshop, you’ll take four completed shades home to add the perfect touch to your interiors. During this in-depth workshop, I’ll also talk about how to turn your new skills into a business. I’ve worked with students who have gone on to great success running craft businesses, and I love to celebrate and support makers taking their first steps into this world. Having the right knowledge and assistance at the start of your journey can make all the difference to your business. Across the 5 days, I’ll give you an insight into the fundamentals of running a lampshade making business. I’ll discuss anything from creating a lampshade collection, how to price, selling wholesale, selling to retailers, finding your ideal clients to marketing and the importance of branding. Whether you want to learn the craft as a hobby, or plan to launch your own lampshade making business, this course will give you what you need to get started. You have total flexibility over your masterclass sessions, and can take four consecutive days, or book multiple sessions spread out to fit around your schedule. For all 1-2-1 tuition workshops, we will work with you to create the best session plan possible. Whatever you hope to gain from this course, just know that I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing my skills and experience to help you reach your goals. Advantage of our one-to-one workshops: Acquiring a new skill can be daunting, but one-to-one tuition can change that. The advantages of our one-to-one tuition is that they can be tailored to your exact level and needs. You will get the opportunity to learn a new craft whilst at ease and at your own pace. I will support you to turn your skills into a business by providing plenty of business advice and trade tips. Your developing skills are improved throughout the course without the pressure of keeping up with a group. Above all, you can enjoy some quality time away from the pressures of everyday life. Embrace the experience and treat yourself to the gift of lifelong learning. Post Course Business Support: After completing the course if you feel you would benefit from extra support launching or developing your business, I also offer online business consultation sessions.
