Make a lampshade with Suzie Kemner

Suzie is back and so is our lampshade class! In this fun two hour workshop, Suzie Kemner will lead you through the process of turning a fabric of your choice into a beautiful drum lampshade. You’ll learn how to line up the fabric, attach it to specialist lampshade vinyl (glow tested and certified) and then craft it into a 30cm lampshade that can be hung from a ceiling rose or mounted on a standard lamp. Once you’ve learned the technique, you’ll be able to create lampshades of your own in different sizes. Find out more and book a spot here.
