During this Sunday afternoon workshop, at the wonderful Ayres House Studios in Wallingford, you will make a lampshade for your home. I have lots of beautiful fabric but please feel free to bring your own as well and we can see if it will be suitable. ON THE DAY - We will look at what makes the perfect lampshade, making sure the fabric you use suits your ideas. - Working through the steps to create a bespoke drum or cone shape lampshade using hard PVC backing. - The lampshades will be 25cm at the base and can be made to fit a lamp or a ceiling light. - Cutting fabric and backing to your specific needs. No pre-cut sizes here! - All materials are included. 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. Cotton works best but many other textiles work too but I recommend avoiding silk as it will come away from the backing over time. 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.
