Val reviewed: Lampshade making - gathered & pleated shades - small group workshop (North of York)

"I recently attended Jacqueline's gathered and pleated lampshade making course, held in her beautiful home in Ebberston, and what a fabulous two days it was. Jacqueline is so warm and friendly. She was an excellent teacher, explaining and demonstrating everything to us very clearly. She also provided lots of helpful advice prior to the course. I now feel very confident putting my new lampshade-making skills to use. Lunch each day was delicious - all homemade with ingredients from Jacqueline's own garden. Everything about this course was an absolute delight and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I have since booked onto a further course with Jacqueline and I can't wait to go back. "

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Val. You are a delight to teach and l look forward to working with you again and getting creative with lampshade designs. Kind regards Jacqueline "

"Jacqueline is amazing! Such a talented woman! Jacqueline teaches with such patience and kindness. I had a one to one class with Jacqueline and it was definitely worth it. I really wanted to learn this technique and initially thought I could learn it myself through youtube videos but you definitely cannot. There is so much more to it, it takes time and all the techniques to make a perfect and professional lampshade you will only learn from an expert like Jacqueline. I would definitely recommend this course with Jacqueline to anyone wanting to learn as it is an amazing skill to have."

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you Catherine for your lovely review. You were a pleasure to teach and your textile ideas ... all things natural with traditional techniques ... so exciting. I look forward to seeing your own collections at a trade shows in the years to come."

Tanya Mellor reviewed: Lampshade Making - Gathered & Pleated shades - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"I had wanted to learn the techniques for traditional lampshade-making for a long time, so to find this workshop was a real treat! We had a lovely two days; although we were working hard on our lampshades, the atmosphere was relaxed and Jacqueline's teaching is clear and patient. The surroundings of High Force Hotel are beautiful and comfortable, and we were very well looked after by everyone. We came away feeling very pleased with our creations and the knowledge we gained has equipped us with the confidence to try different shade styles and designs on our own. I would thoroughly recommend. Thank you Jacqueline."

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you Tanya for your lovely review. Your lampshade was beautiful and I look forward to seeing your designs as your creativity blooms ..."

"I recently joined Jacqueline for a weekend get away and learnt how to make a pleated gathered lampshade it was fabulous! Jaqueline immediately put you at ease and was so patient teaching and sharing her knowledge . We had a lovely weekend away from it all and learning a new skill at the same time. I couldn’t believe I came away with a beautiful lampshade and all my own work and I’m now making a second one knowing Jaqueline is available to contact if I forget what I did . I would definitely recommend this course to have an enjoyable get away from it all weekend and learn a new skill among like minded people and new friends. Thanks Jacqueline"

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you Sue, I'm so glad to hear you are already making a second lampshade. I would love to see a pikkie when you're done and please get in touch if you have any queries :)"

Karina Holland reviewed: Making Scrumptious Scatter Cushions - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"I have been on a number of Jacqueline’s courses and loved every one so thought I’d give this one a go too! It was perfect - I got to be very creative in using left over bits of material from previous course I had attended. I love how my pillows now match my lampshades. Jacqueline was great at finding a way of using all my little bits and bobs of fabric and trims in the best way possible! Thank you so much Jac - yet again a fabulous weekend!"

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Ahh yes Karina, we don't throw anything away. All the scraps from window treatments and lampshades are fabulously important as they can bring a whole room scheme together with a few scatter cushions. Your cushions are gorgeous, well done you!"

Hazel Stephens reviewed: Making Scrumptious Scatter Cushions - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"I’m so proud of what I achieved on this course - two amazing cushions, new skills and a shed load of creative ideas! I thought I knew how to make scatter cushions but not like these ones! Zips, piping, beaded trims - loved it! A relaxed, friendly course with lots of help and tips - Jacqueline certainly knows what she’s talking about and is brimming with ideas and advice. Well worth it whether creating for personal use or something more ambitious - highly recommended"

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you Hazel for your lovely review, your cushions were beautiful and I was totally impressed with all your creative ideas."

Hannah Hennessy reviewed: Lampshade Making - Gathered & Pleated shades - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"I really enjoyed this course and I am thrilled with my lamp! I learned how to make a lamp with pleats at the top and gathers at the bottom. It has given my bedroom a lovely pop of colour and looks so unique. Jacqueline is a great teacher, and she brings out the creative side in everyone! She is patient, personable, and fun to work with. I shall definitely sign up for more classes as I want to add some cushions to match. Don't worry if you are a beginner (like I was) this course is for everyone!"

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thanks so much Hannah for you lovely review. It was a pleasure to teach you and I am so glad you'll be joining us again for a Scatter Cushions workshop. You'll leave the Scatter Cushion workshop with at least 2 different cushion styles to compliment your lampshade and I have in stock several trims that would work really well with your fabric scraps."

Karina Holland reviewed: Lampshade Making - Gathered & Pleated shades - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"This course was fantastic! It was the first course of this type I had ever gone to so was a bit nervous– I was so surprised I completed day 2 with a beautiful shade gathered at the top and bottom. I loved it so much I decided to go back again to learn how to do box pleats at the top and gathered at the bottom. Jacqueline was so encouraging, allowing us to go at our own speeds ensuring that we were confident at each stage. I am now slowly going around our house getting creative adding splashes of colour with unique lampshades to different rooms."

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" So glad you enjoyed this course Karina, you are a pleasure to teach. We are running a scatter cushion course soon. I will let me know dates once they have been confirmed."

"This course was fantastic! Jacqueline provided an interactive, encouraging atmosphere for which all the involved could bounce creative ideas off each other and get the most of our chosen face fabric/ trims and shade shape. The tailored shade provided a great platform to jump into our creative bundles for an enjoyable and entertaining weekend and we all left with a beautiful shade to bring home."

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Thank you Karina I am so glad you enjoyed this course. Your lampshade was beautiful, stunning choice of fabric and trim combination. Please send me a picture once you have found a base and and your lampshade is in it's forever home."

Karina Holland reviewed: Bespoke hand stitched Roman blinds - 1-2-1 workshop (North of York)

"This course was great – I was initially a little anxious taking on such a large project, however I had been on one of the lampshade courses Jacqueline has run in the past and she was so encouraging throughout that I thought I’d give it a try. She showed us step by step and was on hand to answer all our questions. I have left the weekend with a beautiful blind ready and confident to begin designing ones for our spare room!"

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" Fantastic, you now have all the skills to tackle larger projects. I'm looking forward to seeing the new blind in your spare room. Please send me a picture when your project is complete."

Hazel Stephens reviewed: Lampshade Making - Gathered & Pleated shades - Small Group - 2 day Workshop - York

"Just completed this course with Jacqueline in York and absolutely loved it! I will admit to feeling a little bit nervous before hand and not sure I would be able to do it! However Jacqueline put us completely at ease and talked us through the steps clearly and precisely so that I ended up with a beautiful handmade shade that I can’t wait to show off! The 2 days were broken down into easy stages and we all worked together having a giggle as we went along! I never thought I’d actually finish in time but I was wrong! Now can’t wait to do the tailored course - buzzing with ideas! Highly recommend."

JSInteriorsUK responded:

" I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop Hazel and thanks for you lovely review. We have more residential workshops planned for this Autumn in the North of England. Do check our website, it would be a pleasure to work with you again."
