Double-sided Lampshades
Sunday 4 August 2024

4 August @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Double Sided lampshade

Double Sided lampshadeDouble-sided Lampshades with a trim!
Double the fun!

Create your own professional standard double-sided drum lampshade from scratch. Using fabric of your choice (bring your own or purchase from our studio), make a new décor item that will be the hero of a room at your place or co-ordinate with existing furnishings. And to add that final finishing touch, we’ll teach you how to attach a trim.

Please note: Fabric and trim are extra – however you may bring your own or purchase from us on the day.

Lampshade kits: A variety of kits for Drum Shades, Empire Shades, Hero Lamps, Rocket Lamps and Rectangular Shades are available for purchase on the day so you can keep creating at home.

Lamp bases: If you have a base in mind for the shade you are making, please bring the base with you so we can help you select the best size.

Note: Please do not bring old lampshades for rejuvenating. It takes more time to restore an old shade than the time we have available at the workshop.
