Another stunning shade produced by the talented Catherine from Sussex, who attended our one day traditional lampshade making workshop earlier this week.

This is what Catherine said about Moji Designs:

“Really enjoyable course containing lots of helpful and practical tips. Moji’s high standards and knowledge of designs

and business came across to me as an inspiration to carry on making my own lampshades.

Thank you so much for teaching me a creative skill so professionally.”

This is what Zoe said about us which made me feel very humble and also proud
being able to share my knowledge and expertise with so many people
hoping to achieve what I have achieved during past few years.

Moji is as much a life coach as a teacher. Not only has she given me a fantastically detailed insight into the world of screen printing and a solid base for me to
continue forward, she has also helped me understand my objectives so I am leaving this course with real excitement about my future work.”

 2 day textile printing workshop
This is what Julie said about us:
“I have just finished two days with Moji, fantastic course!
I wasn’t sure what to expect as I have never attended ‘one-to-one’
tuition before only the various mixed ability ‘adult education’ courses
which are spread over several weeks…. so I am delighted with what I
have achieved in such a short time.
Moji is so patient, very talented and very knowledgeable on questions
for technique and method through to helpful marketing and business plans
ideas. Lots of ‘food for thought’ ! ….very inspiring!!
I would highly recommend the one to one tuition with Moji….Worth every
penny! Thank you again Moji”

” This was an excellent introduction to traditional lampshade making.
I learnt a solid foundation of principals to build on to develop more complicated designs
 and now I am definitely addicted to making them. Thank you for a very enjoyable workshop.”

 Beautiful Shade Fiona!… and did I tell you that on the second day of her course Fiona brought this little shade she had done night before just after doing the 1st day?… When she said she’s become addicted to lampshade making she really meant it… So clever!…

This is what Ruth said about us:

“Excellent 6 days spent learning new skills and consolidating my previous experience. Tailor made courses with Moji being very accommodating to your needs as a student. Her style of teaching is really good and easy to understand with detailed demo and enough time to do it yourself. The studio is very well equipped making you feel as ease. All courses were more than I had expected and definitely great value for money.”

Upholstery workshop
This is what Fay said about us:
“I did the weekend beginners guide to upholstery weekend with Moji as it is a hobby I’ve been wanting to cultivate for a long time. The 1:1 tuition format worked brilliantly as it allows you to be completely focused and not feel rushed, just totally immersed in the learning and doing. Doing 2 different styles of seat was great, stage by stage I learnt so much and had a fantastic feeling of satisfaction having used my hands to make something. Especially as its sustainable, making something new out of something old. Moji is fab. Not only is she obviously an experienced and knowledgable professional, but also warm and patient, thorough yet relaxed. A marvellous combination! I would absolutely recommend Moji and this course to anyone. “
