Workshop - lampshades, Jan22Unlock your creativity and illuminate your home with your own handmade lampshade, personalised to suit your style.

In this two-hour creative workshop, you’ll join MADE’s Fiona Lambert to make a beautiful rolled-edge lampshade, ready to use (although some finishing is sometimes required at home). There’s no sewing!

You should bring along a piece of light to medium weight fabric such as cotton or linen (see sizes below) and, if you have them, a pair of general purpose or dressmaking scissors. We can supply scissors and cutting tools so don’t worry if you don’t have anything suitable.

You will learn how to:

  • Position your fabric on the lampshade, thinking about pattern placement and repeats
  • Adhere your fabric onto the laminate panel used to make the shade
  • Hand roll the covered panel on to the lampshade rings, expertly tucking the fabric under the rings to make the perfect shade

You will go home with a wonderful bespoke lampshade and the skills to make many more!

*** The tuition fee does not include the lampshade kit. There are two sizes of shades to choose from, 30cm and 45cm diameter. The kits are an additional £12 and £15 respectively. ***

The minimum required fabric sizes are,

  • 30cm – Fabric 970mm wide x 255mm + 20mm all round
  • 45cm – Fabric 1454mm wide x 298mm + 20mm all round

Suitable for adults. Refreshments are included, for when you need a little break. Spaces are limited to 4 so early booking is advised.
