I am a part-time secondary school teacher, teaching ages 11-18 in crafts with 15 years experience and have a degree in 3D Design (woods, metals, plastics). Making 3D products and sewing has been a lifelong passion of mine and I love being able to teach new skills to you and delight in your amazement at what you create!
Have you ever wanted to make a lampshade to match your soft furnishings, or transform that piece of vintage fabric into something useful?
This relaxed and supportive 3 hour, morning or afternoon workshop, introduces you to the simple techniques and tools required to make a basic 30cms drum lampshade (other sizes/heights available by prior arrangement). A range of attractive modern/vintage/African cotton print fabrics are available for you to choose from.
Cannot make it to me?...
Make your own floor or table lamp using your fabric of choice. Add your electrics (lamp holder, plug and switched cable) and you have a fabulous lighting product.
This relaxed and supportive workshop takes you through the process of making a fabric covered tube shaped floor standing lamp. The floor standing (100cms height) or a table (30cms height cost £60) lamp has a diameter of 20 cms. You will be surprised how simple this process...
Traditional lampshades just got funky!
