Lino Print your own Lampshade – Saturday 17th October 2020

In this class you will learn how to design a pattern to print onto fabric using lino cutting techniques, which you will then use to make your own unique, hand-printed lampshade.

Book your space now for a discounted rate of £48 full price or £36 concession price (usually £60 and £45).

This workshop is designed to teach you how to take an old lampshade frame and give it a new lease of life, saving it from landfill and creating a beautiful piece for your home all at the same time.

You will be shown how to expertly strip an old lampshade frame, clean it up to prepare it for a new cover. You will then get to design your own pattern or image to decorate a plain piece of fabric to remake into a lampshade. Examples will be given to you beforehand and on the day, so don’t worry too much about what pattern or image to use as there will be plenty of inspiration and options to choose from! You will then learn how to cut this pattern or image into lino and print this in a repeating pattern onto fabric to create your lampshade design.

All fabrics, lino, inks and tools will be provided, as well as tea and coffee.

We have lampshades for you to use for free, but if you’d like to bring your own then please do. Second hand lampshades can also be bought cheaply at many charity shops throughout Edinburgh. 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 shaped.

This workshop will be taking place at Granton Hub, Madelvic House, Granton Park Avenue, Edinburgh EH5 1HS. Madelvic House is just off the cycle path, has a dedicated car park and is a 2 minute walk from the number 19, 16 and 200 bus stop. We will be using their large studio space which will allow for social distancing and have implemented all health and safety measures to ensure your safety and comfort. More details of these measures will be emailed out to confirmed attendees the week before the workshop start date.
