Pleated Lampshade Making at Shedlight

Pleated Lampshade Making at Shedlight


**COVID-19 Procedures in place for your safety**

Traditional lampshades just got funky!

Learn the craft of traditional pleated lampshade making but with a contemporary twist! Make a 10" diameter 'French shade' cover using hand stitching techniques with modern fabrics and trimmings.

The course lasts 6 hours and you will select trims from a wide range of braiding to finish the look of your lampshade and make the colours 'pop'.
You may wish to use your own left over furnishing fabric adding individual style to your room or create a fun look with contrasting colours.

I am a part-time secondary school teacher, teaching ages 11-18 in crafts with 16 years experience and have a degree in 3D Design (woods, metals, plastics) and lifetime experience of working with fabrics in dressmaking and soft furnishings. The course is relaxed so you can work at your own pace with plenty of friendly support and guidance.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request
