Maker's bio

Come and make a paper lampshade! Papershades was set up by Ros Freeborn, a paper collage artist Ros runs workshops in her studio in Muswell Hill, north London invites groups to sit around her table and discover the joy of paper collage. Workshops are relaxed and fun. You will create a design on A4 card which is then printed onto five panels of special paper. The panels are then fixed together with two unique perspex 'wheels'. Everyone goes home with a fabulous and totally original paper shade.

Sarah reviewed: Make a paper lampshade from a your own paper collage design

"Fantastic day making our lampshades. I got this as a gift to my friend and she is over the moon. Wonderful access to what feels like all the paper in the work and room to create something truly unique. Rosalind is inspirational! (And makes delicious cake!)"

Papershades responded:

" Oh, Sarah, thank you so much. I really enjoyed meeting you and Amy and you both made such amazing designs. Lovely to see how you alighted upon paper with colour and texture which really spoke to you and used collage to make something so special. Really appreciate your kind words. x"

"We had a fabulous time making our lampshades. Ros has masses of resources and is a warm and supportive teacher. All the lampshades were completely different at the end of the session, but all were fantastic. Ros's workroom is inspirational and she is generous with her knowledge. Thank you Ros!"

Papershades responded:

" Oh thank you so much for such kind and generous words. It was a wonderful workshop and everyone created such lovely work. It was a huge pleasure to meet everyone and have such interesting conversations too. Thank you X"

Matilda reviewed: Make a paper lampshade from a your own paper collage design

"We had such a wonderful time at the Papershades course yesterday. Ros shared her passion for paper and gave plenty of design ideas and inspiration, but we were free to really come up with something personal and special. The atmosphere of the day was lovely and the end product is better than I'd hoped. If I lived closer, I would be going back every week until I had a Papershade for every room in the house! Would highly recommend this course."

Papershades responded:

" I was so impressed by creativity around my table and the beautiful results. What a lovely workshop we had, with such lively conversation, shared appreciation of the emerging designs and enjoyment of the process of making. I'm always thrilled to see the creation of new Papershades designs and it delights me to think that these fabulous lampshades will be cherished by their makers and will brighten up their rooms for years to come. Ros, founder of Papershades."
