Lampshade making workshop - traditional tailored & pleated lampshades course at Helen Izzard Designs

I thoroughly enjoyed my two day course. I learned a lot in the time I was there. Helen was very patient and has a very good easy way of teaching. I came away feeling that I can make any shade I want.

I cannot overstate how perfect my day on Helen’s course was.
I came home with my lovely Roman blind, and have just finished putting it up!
Helen is professional and so patient, ensuring that you are taken through every single process of your project. I learnt many techniques and practical tips, and have gained confidence to do it again.
And I almost forgot to mention the many cups of coffee and a superb lunch!
So, thank you Helen, I will certainly be back!

I enjoyed every single minute of the course.

Thank you Helen, I loved your relaxed but very attentive style of teaching. Who'd have thought we could complete a lampshade in just a few hours. A really fun and fruitful morning.

Helen was so organised, helpful and friendly. In spite of the big numbers she managed to assist everyone at the various stage they were at. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere but we all completed our project and o feel confident to repeat another lampshade at home

Curtains, blinds & cushions workshops - one day workshops at Helen Izzard Designs

Thank you so much Helen for such a great day . I have learnt so much and very proud of my roman blind.
Lovely lunch and cake too

I really liked the Class sizes being small, therefore the tuition was excellent
I’ve been to classes in the past with too many in the group and I’ve spent ages waiting for help to be able to move on

I can’t wait for the next one!!
Thanks again

I had a lovely day learning how to make an interlined Roman blind. I have made blinds and curtains before, but not interlined them, and my measuring and cutting was always a bit hit and miss! Helen gave me excellent tips on how make sure my projects really are made to measure. Thoroughly enjoyable, sociable and useful day. Thank you, Helen.

I recently took park in the curtain making course.
I am a complete novice but Helen reassured me and guided me through the process giving me the confidence to tackle my project.
I would highly recommend Helen’s workshop and I am looking forward to taking part in another workshop in the future.

So delighted Iv have been on this course. A really good day and I feel it has really given me the confidence making more blinds for my home, and I actually feel I have learnt what I need to do.

Lampshade making workshop - traditional tailored & pleated lampshades course at Helen Izzard Designs

I travelled a long way on my own to do this course and I would do it again in a heartbeat! Helen is an extremely positive, upbeat, friendly and patient teacher and having learnt how to make a gathered shade I would like to go back and try a tailored one! Helen brought a group of likeminded strangers together for a most enjoyable time.
I really hope to return soon - if she'll have me!!!
If you've ever wanted to learn this craft please do so with Helen - you won't regret it.

I had the best 2 days and cannot rate Helen highly enough. I arrived a little apprehensive but Helens welcoming teaching style and expertize quickly won me over. I now have the confidence to continue and broaden my lampshade styles and may well attend her next course just for the fun of it.

Lampshade making workshop - traditional tailored & pleated lampshades course at Helen Izzard Designs

The course covers a lot of ground in two days and by the end you will have the knowledge and confidence to strike out on your own. Helen is an excellent teacher and very knowledgable, she also has endless patience, all of which enables you to achieve amazing results. You will never look at a lampshade in the same way again!
