1 - 5




You will learn to create your own industry standard drum lampshade (yours to keep of course).

Bring along some fabric, I'll supply everything else, including the metal ringset and adhesive styrene to adhere the fabric to, as well as glue and special tape.

Think about the pattern you choose for your fabric and how it will look as lampshade. Once you learn, you might become a little addicted!

Choose between 20cm or 30cm lampshade.
