PRODUCT INFORMATION

In this workshop you will learn all the skills you need to make your own gathered lampshades, fully lined and finished to a high standard. You will then be able to go on to make more shades, either professionally or for your own use.

You will be taught how to:
  • Gather your fabric, heeding pattern and positioning - you will learn two methods for this.
  • Hand sew the fabric onto the frame.
  • Make a balloon lining and position this into the frame and hand sew in place.
  • Make your base and top ring bias trims and hand sew these into position.

You will also be shown how to make a variety of other trims for your lampshade.

About your Teacher:

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

Materials:

You will need a minimum of 50cm of fabric for your shade, however we will be joining widths so if you have a larger pattern, please bring more.

Ideal fabrics are thinner, medium cottons or cotton mixes, silks, quilting fabrics or indian block prints or even saris. The finer the fabric you use, the more softly gathered your finsihed lampshade will be. Thicker fabrics such as heavier cottons, upholstery fabrics, velvets are not suitable. If you have a large pattern please note it may be lost in the gathers. Please do ask us if you are unsure about your fabric choice.

You will also need £12 for the frame, tape and lining fabric which is paid directly to the tutor on the day.

Class Size:

Maximum class size of 6.

Skills:

Ideal for complete beginners. No previous experience needed but a love for hand sewing is key as there is a lot!

Venue:

This workshop will be held at Clothkits which is located in central Chichester, about a 10 minute walk from the train and bus station. The closest place to park is The Cattle Market Car Park on Market Avenue.
