In this three hour workshop, you will learn to make your own roll drum lampshade in a choice of three sizes. 20 cm, 25 cm or 30 cm diameter shade. All you need to bring along is a half metre of your choosen fabric please be aware that cotton and linen fabric's are easier to work with. Over embroidered or silk fabric need to be avoided for begininers. Sarah is on hand to tell you all the tricks of the trade to create a perfect lampshade. Her attention to detail will ensure you leave with a shade to proudly add to your home.
At the end of the workshop, you will have made your own roll drum lampshade to take away and as well as the skills to go on making.
