Lampshade Making (Sat 21st Jan)

Date: Saturday, January 21, 2023
Time: 10am-3pm
Venue: The Courthouse
You will need to provide your own fabric for the main part of the lampshade, but all other materials will be available and included. We recommend you bring a fabric approximately 120cm wide and 500cm long. Lawn cotton is the best weight, but a heavier cotton or linen can work. Trims can also be added for which 2 metres should be sufficient.

Create your own unique lampshade to match your room interior or gift to a loved one.

You will be guided by artist Dove Armistead, to create a personalised lampshade (approx. 30cm diameter) using a lampshade kit. You will use your own fabric to then be developed with different decorating techniques.

Your tutor Dove has a passion for textiles, specialising in stitching and up-cycling fabrics.

Suitable For: All abilities
