Welcome to my Small Group Workshop: Creating Beautiful Box Pleated Lampshades!

Immerse yourself in a weekend of creativity in Brighton as you learn the art of crafting stunning hand-sewn lampshades. In this 2 day course, you’ll explore the intricate process of creating box pleated lampshades, complete with linings and matching trim.

Renowned for their captivating three-dimensional design, box pleated lampshades seamlessly blend elegance, versatility, and timeless appeal. This sought-after lampshade comprises two components: an empire hardback shade serving as the base, and a box pleated loose cover designed to sit atop the base lampshade. The removable loose cover offers versatile functionality, allowing you to adapt the lampshade to suit your space.

Throughout the tutorial, you’ll first master the construction of an empire hardback lampshade, learning techniques such as template design and edge rolling for a flawless finish. In the second segment, you’ll delve into the art of sewing a box pleated loose cover with lining, creating a seamless and elegant addition to your lampshade.

Be sure to book your course early to secure your spot and ensure you don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to unleash your creativity and learn the art of lampshade making in a supportive and inspiring environment. Reserve your spot today and embark on a journey of craftsmanship and creativity!
