About the event


You and your mates will not only be going home with your own fabulous, unique shade, but will get a thorough grounding into the art of modern lampshade making.

You can choose to make either a drum shape or tapered shape shade in a choice of sizes (S, M, L and XL) - options shown at checkout.


No prior knowlegde, or skills are required - this is Lampshade-Making 101.

 I'll be taking you step by step through each stage of the process - although at some times it's a little fiddly - 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, frames, and tools
  • Tea, coffee (bags) and biccies provided 

What to bring

  • BYO fabric, or purchase on the day*
  • If you have a pair of good fabric scissors please bring them, but no worries if you don't (I have plenty)
  • Please bring an old credit, or store loyalty card (something that doesn't matter if it gets a bit bent)


  • BYO FABRIC: All the info you need re. type and qty will be emailed following booking
  • If you'd rather buy here, you can do so on the day with cash - I have a stash of mostly colourful printed fabrics (not many plains I'm afraid!), with prices between $10 and $50 depending on what you choose.  (If you've seen something online here on my website that you love, let me know so I can check availability and advise price).  If you're planning on buying here please arrive 20mins ahead of scheduled start to choose and prep your fabric.

What else

  • Kits are available to purchase if you'd like to turn your lampshade into a pair, or another size/shape entirely
  • Lampshade supplies, and fabrics are also available to purchase on the day


Due to the difficulties of refilling short-notice vacancies in small-group workshops I'm sorry but NO REFUNDS are available.

However - you can transfer your booking to a friend or family-member to attend in your place.

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.
