LAMPSHADE MAKING PRIVATE GROUP
This workshop is fully customisable for those with their own group. There are 2 main options:
Option 1: up to 4 people at the Bottoms' End studio in Jamberoo
Option 2: group of up to max 10, at another location. This can either be somewhere of your choosing (see 'Location' below for requirements), or hall hire here in the Jamberoo village can be arranged.
This is a great way of having a crafty-party with like-minded friends such as Hens, bookclub mates, family-get-togethers... how about an end-of-year workplace party or going-away party for a work colleague?
The price listed here is for Option 1 (Jamberoo studio)..
Price for Option 2 will be negotiated depending on all the details - hall hire, distance for us to travel, participant numbers and any other costs. Please contact us to discuss details so we can work out a quote.
Our studio ('BOTTOMS' END') is 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). If you're not local and would like to make a weekend trip, there are plenty of fabulous accommodation options nearby, and we're happy to help you with info.
This workshop is for total beginners. You'll learn everything you need to know to produce your own rolled-edge lampshades - you'll take home at least one drum shade, with the option available to make more than one if there's time. There is no sewing, glueing or pegging involved and it's a relatively easy, (although definitely fiddly), skill to learn.
All you need to bring is your own fabric - we provide everything else. (An info sheet of everything you need to know will be provided on booking). If you don't have a chosen fabric, we can of course supply this too! Either from our showroom in Jamberoo (open Saturday mornings 9am-12noon), or we can bring a small selection to your event.
In the showroom you can either choose from a limited selection of high quality fabrics in stock, or pre-order from an enormous variety of sample-stock, but with a minimum of 2 weeks' leadtime. (Fabric prices are well below RRP.) If you'd prefer not to have to worry about your participants bringing fabric, we can provide a small selection on the day.
Please note, in this workshop participants will be making a DRUM (straight-sided) shade from scratch, using all new materials. (Other shapes and sizes are available in other workshops we offer).
