Pleated Shades
Saturday 29 August

Saturday 29 August 2020 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Pleated Shade

Pleated ShadeCreate your own stunning pleated lampshade!

There is something special about the look of a pleated lampshade. The added texture and definition can really be a focal point in a room and add another layer of interest and sophistication.

Pleated shades are made entirely from fabric with a pleated fabric outer and a fabric lining. The finishing touch is the self bias trim to the top and bottom.

Pleated ShadeIn this workshop we’ll show you how to create your own pleated shade. We’ll guide you through each of the steps and you’ll go home with your own shade as well as easy-to-follow instructions so that you can make more pleated shades at home it you wish. Additional frames may be purchased if required.
