Lampshade Making Workshop, Sunday 24th March 2019
Turn a dated, damaged, or unloved lampshade into a beautiful centrepiece for your home in our 3-hour Lampshade Making 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 making techniques as well as gain skills which you can use to remake lampshades again and again at home.
Bring along your own material and tailor your new lampshade to a specific room in your home, or be adventurous and choose your material on the day from our wide range of stock at the Remakery.
We have some lampshades available to use for those who don’t have one or aren’t able to get one in time, but we encourage you to bring along your own – these can be bought cheaply at many charity shops throughout Edinburgh!
Please note, your shade must be a rigid sided shade (ie with the fabric on the outside bonded to a PVC cover) and not a soft sided shade (ie where the fabric is sewn onto a metal frame). Suitable shade types are drum, cone or oval shaped. If you choose a cone shaped shade you will create a bespoke template during the workshop, and drum and oval shades will use a rectangular panel of PVC which you will cut to size.
All tools and materials are provided as well as teas and coffees to fuel your creativity! 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).
