About the event


Participants will not only be going home with their own fabulous bespoke shade, but will get a thorough grounding into the captivating craft of modern lampshade making (ie: the fabric is bonded to the stiff lining). 

You can choose to make either a drum shape or tapered (Empire) shape shade - options shown at checkout.

In this beginner-level workshop there is a min 6/max 10 students so you are guaranteed personal attention.

Start time is 10am - 1pm finish.


No prior knowlegde, or skills are required - this is Lampshade Making 1.01 .  I'll be taking you step by step through each stage of the process, and doing my best to make this learning process as enjoyable as possible!  

Tip:  Of the 2 shapes available in this workshop - Drum shades are slightly easier

What's included

  • All the supplies you'll need are included (except fabric).. this includes professional quality adhesive backings, frames, and tools
  • We'll be stopping for a short morning tea - tea and coffee and homemade biccies supplied

What to bring

  • BYO fabric*, or purchase in store from the HUUUGE selection available
  • If you have a pair of good fabric scissors please bring them
  • Please bring an old credit, or store loyalty card (something that doesn't matter if it gets a bit bent)


QTY:  you need a minimum size piece of full-width (110cm) x 50cm

TYPE:   best types are lightweight cotton, or poly-cotton mix;  linen or any other lightweight natural fibres, IE:  quilting fabric is IDEAL!

Tip:  Avoid anything with a loose, open, coarse weave;  upholstery weight;  slinky or sheer

What else

  • Kits are available to purchase if you'd like to turn your lampshade into a pair, or another size/shape entirely


Due to the difficulties of refilling short-notice vacancies in small-group workshops:

  • 7-0 days before the workshop, sorry - No refund for cancellation, but...
  • ...  tickets are fully transferrable, so if you can't make it - it's fine to pass it on to a friend to come instead

Further info 

Following booking an info sheet will be emailed to you with all full details about the location, what to bring and more.  If you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact me via the Contact form.
