1 DAY BESPOKE TUITION INCLUDING A BEGINNER'S GUIDE
TO STARTING A LAMPSHADE MAKING BUSINESS
This one-to-one fully customised course is the perfect introduction to traditional or modern lampshade making. You’ll have the opportunity to make a lampshade of your choice, alongside any questions about techniques or skills you would like to know. In addition, I am always delighted to share my knowledge and experience in running craft businesses, and if you are looking to start your own business we can spend time discussing the important aspects you’ll need to know. We’ll discuss anything from creating a lampshade collection, how to price, selling wholesale, selling to retailers, finding your ideal clients to marketing and the importance of branding.
During this workshop, you’ll learn to make one lampshade from the following choices…
- Tailored lampshade
- Pleated lampshade
- Gathered lampshade
- Modern drum lampshade and create templates for tapered shades
By the end of the workshop, you’ll take a fully finished shade home to add the perfect touch to your interiors. You’ll also be taking home your new insights into the world of lampshade making, learnt during this rewarding and invaluable session.
