I learnt a lot at this session and came out with a lovely looking lampshade. Appreciated that the teacher also provided printed instructions so we could try making more lampshades in our own time.

Nicola was a fantastic teacher, and the studio was wonderful - light and airy! All equipment was of good quality and we all went home with beautiful lampshades!

Georgina McColl Dec 2020


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.
