Lampshade ReMaking Workshop, Saturday 14th November 2020
Turn a dated, damaged, or worn lampshade into a beautiful centrepiece for your home in our 2-hour Lampshade ReMaking workshop.
In this class you will learn how to expertly strip your old lampshade frame, clean it up to prepare it for your new cover, and remake it in a fabric and style of your own choice. You will learn valuable lampshade remaking techniques and skills which you can use time and again to revamp your home.
We have some lampshades available to use, but you can also bring along your own for this workshop, size and shape details below. Second hand lampshades can also be bought cheaply at many charity shops throughout Edinburgh if you don’t have one already. You can also choose to bring along your own material (dimension details below) and tailor your new lampshade to a specific room in your home, or be adventurous and choose your material from our range of stock on the day!
All other tools and materials are provided as well as teas and coffees to fuel your creativity.
Shade and material details
Shades can be a maximum of 40cm in diameter. Your shade must also be a rigid sided shade where the shade fabric is bonded to a PVC cover, and not a soft sided shade where the fabric is sewn onto a metal frame. Suitable shade types are drum, cone or oval. If you would like to bring along your own fabric, please make sure you have a piece wide enough to wrap around your shade plus 2cm overlap (for round, oval or cone shades, you can calculate this by measuring the diameter of the shade x 3.15 +2), and as tall as the shade plus 10cm for positioning and tucking in (for example, if you want to make a 25cm diameter 20cm high shade, you will need a piece of fabric which is 81cm X 30cm).
This workshop will be taking place at the Edinburgh Remakery, 127 Leith Walk EH6 5JQ. We will be using our newly refurbished workshop space which allows for easy social distancing, whilst still creating a comfortable environment for this fun creative session.
More details of the measures we are taking to ensure your health, safety and comfort during your time with us will be emailed out to confirmed attendees the week before the workshop start date.
