We have some great news to share! In recent months we have been working on several new projects, designed to offer people the opportunity to learn new skills, launch their own business and find new earning opportunities.
Our first project is something we’re really excited about. People have been asking us about this for a long time and the pandemic has given us the push to go for it. We’re launching a brand new online lampshade making course with business support included! You can learn how to make lampshades from the comfort of your own home – and then find out how to turn your new skills into a business! With easy-to-follow pre-recorded videos and helpful notes throughout, the course is designed to guide you through every step to creating and selling your own lampshades.
While we’ve been working on our online courses, we’ve also had many requests for virtual live lampshade making classes. We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we are now offering one-to-one virtual lampshade making sessions, including business skills, live from our studio in Brighton! Our virtual live traditional lampshade making sessions are designed to work for everyone – no matter where in the world you are. From our studio in Brighton, we have hosted students from all over the world – but now, under covid-19 restrictions, we can come to you instead!
Finally, we are also launching an in-person 10-week lampshade making masterclass starting May 7th from our studio in Brighton. In this exciting new course, you will learn the skills of our traditional craft extensively and you’ll grow in confidence with everything you learn. This one day a week course is truly all-encompassing, offering all the skills that you’ll need to become a confident lampshade maker, and perhaps even start your own business.
Although times are really tough with a lot of uncertainty during the pandemic and the recent lockdown, we must all stay positive and creative. We believe that despite the hardship we are all experiencing, the lockdown is a great time to plan for the future.
At our lampshade making academy, there are so many ways you can get involved and learn the craft of lampshade making. Have a look at our website and check out our courses. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date with all our new developments and updates.
