Over two full days you will handstitch your own beautiful gathered or pleated lampshade. I have lots of beautiful silk and cotton fabric but please feel free to bring your own as well and we can see if it will be suitable. YOU WILL LEARN TO • Choose and prepare a suitable frame for this technique • Create gathers and pleats with traditional techniques • Make a balloon lining • Finish your shade with a handstitched bias edge • All materials are included. • Handstitched shades can be fiddly and hard on your hands. Please consider this if you have any issues with your hands and wrists. YOUR IDEAS Please do discuss with me any specific ideas in advance and I can let you know if they are feasible. I am happy to advise on fabrics as well. CANCELLATIONS Please give me as much warning as possible if you are unable to attend. Unfortunately I will not be able to offer a refund after two weeks before the workshop unless I can find someone else to take your place If I am unable to get a minimum of 6 participants I will sadly have to cancel. I will give you 5 days notice and a full refund or the option to book an alternative date.
