MAKE A LAMPSHADE
Unlock 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!
