Image of LAMPSHADE 1.01 WORKSHOP  Sunday 12th May

In this workshop you’ll learn how to produce your own rolled-edge lampshade from scratch, using all new materials. There is no sewing, glueing or pegging involved, just professional techniques using premium quality materials as used in the trade.

No previous experience is needed - this is suitable for complete beginners.
You'll take home your own 30cm drum (straight sided) shade or a different size with an additional price dependent on size.

All you need to bring is your own fabric (an info sheet of everything you need to know will be provided on booking).... or...

... fabrics are available for purchase from the Rapt showroom in Jamberoo (open Saturday mornings 9am-12noon). In the showroom you can either choose from a selection of fabric in stock, or pre-order from sample-stock direct from the suppliers, but a minimum of 2 weeks' leadtime is required. Fabric prices are well below RRP. There will also be fabric available on the day of the workshop.

This workshop is run from BOTTOMS' END, the Rapt studio located in idyllic country surroundings at the end of a quiet country lane in the beautiful Jamberoo Valley NSW, (approximately half an hour south of Wollongong - an easy 2.5 hrs-ish from Sydney, or Canberra). Participant numbers are limited so you are guaranteed personal tuition, in a relaxed and lighthearted atmosphere. Being a country event, morning tea is included.

If you'd like to make a full day of it, you might wish to stay on to attend the LAMPSHADE 1.02 class in the afternoon (1-4.30pm). In this class you'll be making over your own existing shade, from old/boring/damaged into a thing of beauty. There is a $15.00 discount for attending both workshops. See separate listing.

If you know someone who might like doing this, or another workshop on another date, Gift Vouchers are available from our showroom, or by mail.
