Join us for the day and learn how to make a traditional lampshade. Using the fabric of your choice you will learn how to make a 'soft' shade on a bowed empire frame - a classic traditional style of lampshade.

About your Teacher:  

Jane Warren is one talented lady, and an excellent tutor. She has many years of making lampshades under her belt. 

Class Size:

Maximum class size of 6.


Ideal for complete beginners, or for those wanting to try something new.


For your workshop you will need:
  • About half a metre of full width fabric, or larger, depending on the print or design you have chosen.
  • If you wish you may also bring 1 metre of trim for the base - pom pom, tassel, braid or anything stretchy.  You can alternatively make bias on the day from your fabric.
  • £12 for the frame which is paid directly to the tutor on the day.
Please note when choosing your fabric that it will need to be cut on the bias for this shade (i.e. if your fabric has a pattern, it will be placed at a 45 degree angle).Your chosen fabric should be relatively robust - not too thin as it will need to be heavily stretched and also to prevent the light bulb showing through the shade. Try and aim for a cotton/cotton mix, nothing with a loose weave or embellishments.We have lots of lovely trims and fabrics available to buy on the day if you so wish.



The workshop is held in a bright and airy venue four minute's walk from our Clothkits shop. We will rendezvous on day one at Clothkits to collect any supplies needed and then take the short walk to the venue.  Clothkits shop is located in central Chichester, about a 10 minute walk from the train and bus station. The closest car park is The Cattle Market.
