Drum Lampshade Workshop
24 February @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm£35.00
Workshop: Drum Lampshade
Kit: Option to buy a kit only if unable to attend in person. Full colour instructions included plus video tutorial.
Date: Sat 23.02.24 ( see also 03.02.24)
What you make: A 30cm Drum Lampshade
Age: 18 years+
Suits: Beginner friendly, home decor enthusiasts
What to bring: You will supply your own fabric so that you can co-ordinate this with your home decor. You can choose to embellish at home with trimmings of your choice or leave as a simple and elegant shade. The fabric you should source should be woven, not too stretchy or thick and ideally cotton or linen. Avoid velvet, wool or easily fraying materials. Half a metre of fabric would be ample but the exact size is 97cm x 27.5cm. If you want to keep life simple, avoid fabric that has a directional pattern to it so a smaller repeat pattern for example. Bring reading glasses if needed.
Workshop Summary: During this relaxed and beginner friendly ‘no sew’ workshop you will learn to make a straight sided, 30cm drum lampshade. You can choose whether your lampshade can be used for a hung ceiling pendant or a table lamp base. You will be guided through every step and need absolutely no prior experience or sewing skills. There is no machine or hand sewing involved- we promise!
A relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with optional refreshments and scone bar selection to choose from.
