Suitable for beginners
If you’ve felt inspired by what you’ve seen on our website, then we also offer lampshade making workshops. Based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, they will be hosted by none other than our Lampshade Parade founder and drum maker par excellence, Katrina de Toney.
During the day, Katrina will provide all tools and equipment needed to make your very own 30cm drum lampshade to take home with you. Even better, you will be able to proudly declare to anyone and everyone that visits “I made that!” and that’s not even the best part. All the tips and skills that you acquire on the day will enable you to confidently recreate the steps at home to make more lampshades as and when you need.
The course is suitable for complete beginners as all steps will be carefully explained and demonstrated, along with all the short cuts, finer techniques and advice that will take your lampshade from amateur to professional!
Your 30cm lampshade kit is all included for you plus tea, coffee and cake because we want you to feel at home.
