Time & Location

The Lampshade Workroom, Curramore Rd, Jamberoo NSW 2533, Australia

About the event

What

Bring your own old, or boring lampshade and learn how to transform it entirely into better than new!  Not only will you take home your own fabulous creation,  but you'll get a thorough grounding into the art of bonded lampshade making (ie: the fabric is bonded to the stiff lining) 

AND the satisfaction of having saved another item from landfill while beautifying your home!

When

In this beginner-level workshop there is a min 3/max 8 students so you are guaranteed personal attention.

It is preceded on the same day by the Introduction to Lampshade Making Workshop, so if you want to have a whole day of lampshade luxury, then you're welcome to join in for both workshops.

Difficulty

No prior knowlegde, or skills are required. I'll be taking you step by step through each stage of the process - although it is a little fiddly, and can sometimes be messy (see below re. gloves)  - I'll be doing my best to make this as easy and fun as possible!

What's included

  • All the supplies you'll need are included (except fabric*).. this includes professional quality adhesive backings and tools
  • Afternoon tea (with homemade yummies) is included

What to bring

  • BYO old lampshade (see Pre-approval comment following)
  • BYO fabric*...
  • OR purchase here. I have a huge stash of colourful printed fabrics, as well as sample books from a range of Australian and international fabric houses. (If you'd like a particular fabric you've seen elsewhere I can probably order it for you with a minimum of 3weeks notice)
  • If you have a pair of sharp fabric scissors please bring them, but no worries if you don't (I have plenty)
  • Bring an old credit, or store loyalty card (something you won't mind getting damaged)
  • Bring some tight-fitting, stretchy gloves (such as gardening gloves sold in Bunnings.  These are to protect your hands during the stripping-down process)

Pre-Approval

Before booking, if possible please email me a pic of your intended makeover project, including dimensions (ie: its top and bottom diameters, and height).

You can bring either a drum shape or tapered shape - but it must be a hard-sided shade (not a stretched, soft fabric).

Your Ticket price will be dependant on the size.  Your options are S, M, L and XL in both drum and tapered.

I'll reply to your email with the correct price option.

What else

  • Kits are available to purchase if you'd like to continue your shade-making at home
  • Lampshade supplies, and fabrics are also available to purchase on the day
  • Please either bring cash or your credit card/phone to pay

Cancellation 

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

  • 14 days or more before the workshop full refund (or credit if you prefer)
  • 14 - 7 days before the workshop – 50% refund, or credit
  • 7-0 days before the workshop, sorry - No refund
  • Workshop 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 the details about our location, what to bring and more.  If you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact me via the Contact form.
