Lampshade making demonstration
2pm Sunday 31 May

Beautiful Lampshade

This workshop is a demonstration workshop. This is like a “try before you buy” way of learning how to make a lampshade. This is your opportunity to see how easy it is to make a lampshade before you buy a kit from our online store.

Our kits come with very comprehensive instructions and are easy to follow.
