Welcome to an immersive journey of creativity and craftsmanship at Moji Designs. My comprehensive 5-day lampshade making masterclass is tailored for those eager to master the full spectrum of lampshade creation. This intensive yet enjoyable course covers the entire landscape of both traditional and modern lampshade techniques, empowering you to craft captivating pieces that infuse warmth and ambiance into your living spaces. My masterclass goes beyond traditional lampshades, as I’m thrilled to introduce the contemporary card lampshade to the mix. The versatile drum or empire lampshade brings a modern touch to any interior, making it an ideal fit for various design aesthetics. Lampshades are a diverse array of functional art pieces, each with its own personality, and the rewarding process of crafting them is something to cherish. During these transformative five days, we’ll delve into: Crafting a pleated lampshade with a pleated lining and intricate hand-sewn bias trim Exploring the elegance of a gathered lampshade paired with a pleated lining and delicate bias trim Mastering the traditional tailored lampshade featuring a balloon lining and skillfully hand-sewn bias trim Choosing between a versatile drum or an exquisite empire card lampshade Exploring crucial business aspects, from pricing and branding to strategic marketing and the art of selling your lampshades. Beyond the technical skills, I’m dedicated to empowering you to transform your passion into a thriving business venture. Many of my students have successfully launched craft businesses, and I’m thrilled to support you in taking your first steps in this dynamic industry. With guidance, knowledge, and insights, you can venture into your business journey with confidence. My lampshade masterclass masterclass sessions are designed to provide ultimate flexibility. Whether you opt for five consecutive days or prefer to spread out your learning over multiple sessions, I accommodate your schedule. For my personalised 1-2-1 tuition workshops, I collaborate with you to shape the perfect session plan.
