Maker's bio

I love working with all types of textiles and hope I can share this enjoyment with you. I live on our family run smallholding in beautiful North Devon. Workshops are all run from our converted stables overlooking the garden on the smallholding, and weather permitting may be held outside. I am also passionate about the environment and where I can will source material's in an environmentally friendly way.

Melissa reviewed: Unique hand made Lampshade making workshop

"This is the second time I’ve been on this course. It was a birthday present from my sister and I came with her and my daughter. We all had a fantastic time rummaging through all the treasures in the studio. All our lampshades were so different and all so beautiful. Thank you so much Max, I couldn’t have had a better birthday."

"We had a fantastic day making lampshades for my sister's birthday present. Wonderfully taught by the lovely Max. Hoards of fabric, buttons, bits and bobs. Biscuits and cakes to top it off. I would highly recommend the course. I plan on coming back to make another lampshade. Thank you Max for a wonderful day we really enjoyed ourselves."

Jacqueline reviewed: Unique hand made Lampshade making workshop

"Let there be light! . My sister and I attended a workshop with Maxine 4 weeks ago and it was a fantastic day. We both came away buzzing with excitement and a beautiful lampshade. Maxine was very generous in her time, sharing her knowledge in a supportive and enabling manner aided by plenty of tea and ?. So many ideas discussed and lots of fabrics and embellishments to choose from in the haven of a dedicated workshop space. Maxine’s passion for her craft shines through and I will be booking another workshop next year......there is always room for another lampshade."

"I spent a fantastic day with a friend in Max's beautiful workshop. We rummaged through a huge assortment of fabrics and embellishments as well as learning how to screen print. Max has amazing sewing machines that can do stitches beyond anything I've ever seen before! And then we learnt how to put all our hard work with the fabrics into creating a lampshade. Max is knowledgeable and patient and I can't recommend her highly enough. Also cupcakes!"
