Lampshade making at Ministry of Handmade Workshop

Yes – we are bringing our lampshade workshop to Muckadilla! Not only that, we are bringing a trailer full of our favourite fabrics. So get ready for some creative fun!

We use the same techniques that the professional lampshade makers use . . . no sewing, no glueing!

Fabric selection: Light to medium weight cotton, linen, cotton drill, polyester cotton. Fabrics with very loose weave or coarse or uneven grain or texture are not really suitable. Fabric may be purchased from Ministry of Handmade.
For empire shades, fabrics with designs that run obviously horizontally or vertically are not suitable as the shade curves. If you have any questions about this please contact Julie create@ministryofhandmade.com.au

Provided: All other lampshade making equipment and tools for all lampshades.

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.
