Lampshade Making Workshop



I loved this class! The venue was amazing! Such an inspiring creative space to be in. The teacher Nichola was knowledgeable, patient and so lovely. I liked that she made a lampshade along with us so we could see exactly how it was done if we got stuck. It was great having everything you needed right there ready for you, as well as the instructions and all the materials available to purchase if you wanted to make more at home. I thought it was great value for money given all the materials were included, it was great fun and we took home a beautiful  + more

Just completed my lampshade workshop. Our teacher Nicola was experienced and the provided instructions were clear and informative. Workshop facility spacious and comfortable. I have the confidence to do some other lampshades myself now. Note you can purchase supplies for future projects on site or on line.

The teacher, Nicola, was lovely and very thorough. She gave us all the instructions so that we can replicate everything at home. The class was a great activity for creativity and mindfullness - I highly recommend it as a fun night out with friends. Once you make the candles with your choice of colours and scents, you can decorate them. I really enjoyed the decoration aspect.

Great class with a knowledgeable and friendly teacher. The space was organised well and got to focus on choosing what kind of soaps we wanted to make, rather than cleaning up etc., so great use of time. Ended up with a heap of soap, so good if you want to gift it! Mine were a bit ugly haha but had fun!

This was a fantastic beginners course. I had never made a candle before and left feeling confident that I would be able to create some amazing scented and decorated candles when I got home. The teacher was lovely and made everyone feel welcome and took her time to ensure everyone in the class was confident in what they were doing and what products to use. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to start a business or hobby in candle making.

Excellent class. A varied group of people and Nicole did a good job of working with each of us at our own pace. Excellent value for money, as we each left with our own customised lampshade.

We run out of time so we couldn't finish any piece and it was quite sad


Reply from this teacher:

It's a shame your group had to leave the class before it was finished to attend a meeting. We were more than happy for the class to continue until you had all made your pieces.

This was a good, well explained class for my 10-year old. She had all the information she needed to start screen printing after the class. I think it needs to be made clearer that this is a class where those attending follow along and then go away and work on their own projects - it's not a hands on class where you are making something during the session.

The class was a great way to break up the monotony of lockdown and we ended up with some beautiful candles at the end of it. The teacher was incredibly knowledgeable and had lots of tips to make sure that we could continue making candles in the future. We were also sent a video recording of the class in case we forgot anything. Can't wait to test my candles out and a big thank you for an excellent  + more

Nichola is an excellent teacher - well paced tuition and obviously talented! I appreciate the opportunity to watch and learn, but was surprised we weren't encouraged to follow on - I missed the hands-on practice altogether. Will look forward to another ClassBento opportunity thank you! :)

Bridget Allison Sep 2021

The instructions were really clear, but I did feel a bit rushed. When the teacher said they normally do the class over 3hrs, it makes more sense. I felt like overall the class was more of a demonstration and less or a workshop due to the time constraints. I have some experience with crochet, macrame and knots and found the class easy to understand. I am not sure absolute beginners would grasp all the techniques in the limited time. If I had to do this again I would choose a 3hr class, even if it was over Zoom. Or the class could be split into two  + more

Making a lampshade to a decent standard in 1.5 hours turns out to be pretty straightforward - but there are techniques, tools and tips it was great to learn in person. For example, a surprising amount of brute strength is involved, which I would have never dared on my own. Great venue, small class, and teacher Nicole, an ex-commercial lampshade maker, was ace.

This is my second ClassBento with Nicole from Handmaker’s Factory and the reason I have done another is the wonderful instruction - easy to follow, many camera angles and extra tips means that Nicole puts so much attention to detail in her class content. Nicole is very knowledgeable and is able to translate her knowledge into simple easy to follow steps which has enabled me to learn two new craft skills.
