An illuminating evening – review of the Lampshade Workshop.

11 Sep




At the workshop last monday Michelle Cresswell from Owl & Slipper came along to show us how to make some lampshades to use for either table lights on a stand or on the ceiling as a pendant light. She was taught the traditional way with all the different shapes and took us through each stage step by step and so made the drum lampshades look very easy to make. Her calm and methodical manner ensured that we were all converts to making lampshades as she made us feel supremely confident in our own abilities…

…… I wonder how many times I can blame the children on a broken lampshade just so I get an excuse to make a new one so that my husband doesn’t suspect?



Annely and Kates’ lampshades that they made…. in use.

And Kathy’s which she made out of an old scarf… recycling at its best!

Come and join us for the Making Bunting workshop next month on 1st October, perfect for beginners and the more experienced. Also don’t forget our new FREE craft evenings starting tomorrow night ‘Craft at the Crown’ – hope to see some of you there.
