Lampshade Making Beginners DATE TBA
$95.00 Coming Soon
This workshop is run from 'BOTTOMS' END', my 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).
This workshop is for total beginners. I'll teach you everything you need to know to produce your own rolled-edge lampshades - you'll take home at least one small drum shade (option available to make more than one, or different sizes, on the day). There is no sewing, glueing or pegging involved, just clever professional techniques using premium quality materials.
All you need to bring is your own fabric (an info sheet of everything you need to know will be provided on booking). 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 a limited choice of fabric available on the day of the workshop.
Participant numbers are limited to just 4, so you are guaranteed highly personalised tuition, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Being a country event, morning tea is of course included.
Please note, in this workshop you'll be making a DRUM (straight-sided) shade from scratch, using all new materials. If you want to makeover an existing shade you already own, or if you'd like to make an EMPIRE (slope-sided) shade, then please see the 'Advanced' workshop listed separately.
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.
