Join Gillian Arnold for a lampshade making craft workshop experience, a delightful gift for someone or a great way to treat yourself.
Set in our beautiful industrial modern and botanically infused shop in the heart of Darlington, or her workshop in Bishop Auckland. Gillian has been running professional workshops across the country for over 6 years, with a wealth of experience under her belt you will be in great hands.
What does the course cover?
You will be producing high quality, professionally finished drum lampshade from start to finish that you will take home with you, along with the knowledge and ability to make your own lampshades at home. The default lampshade will be 20cm wide by 24cm deep and ideal on a table lamp stand, though you can increase the diameter via the dropdown menu.
We provide all the necessary tools, equipment and skills that you will need, so all you need to bring is your own fabric (optional) and a can-do attitude (mandatory.)
If bringing your own fabric
The minimum size you will be able to work with is a rectangle;20cm Diameter: 70cm wide X 28cm Tall30cm Diameter: 100cm wide X 28cm Tall45cm Diameter: 150cm wide X 28cm TallHowever, it may be beneficial to bring larger pieces of fabric, as you'll be able to decide which part of the pattern you want at the front. Fabric scissors will be on hand.
We recommend a fabric made from either cotton, satin, or linen. We don't recommend velvet, however you can still use it.
We run our hour and a half to two hour workshops from our beautiful shop on Post House Wynd in Darlington (DL3 7LU) or Gillian's workshop in Bishop Auckland (DL14 7PF).
