SOLD OUT Lampshade ReMaking Workshop, Wednesday 20th November

Turn a dated, damaged, or unloved 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 making techniques as well as gain skills which you can use to remake lampshades again and again at home.

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.

Bring along your own lampshade or use one provided by us on the day. Second hand lampshades can be bought cheaply at many charity shops throughout Edinburgh if you don’t have one already. Please note, your shade must 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 choose a cone shaped shade you will create a bespoke template during the workshop, and drum and oval shades will use a rectangular panel which you will cut to size on the day.

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).
