A vintage lampshade holds a timeless appeal, evoking cherished memories of visits to grandma’s house or cozy evenings with a good book. Lampshades made their mark during the Victorian era, and the opulent elegance of Victorian design continues to captivate in today’s maximalist trends. Through the decades, lampshade styles have evolved, embracing art deco sophistication, minimalist modernism, and the enduring allure of traditional and gathered lampshades from bygone eras.

In the 21st century, interior design offers the remarkable opportunity to draw inspiration from our rich design history, allowing us to infuse our spaces with a touch of vintage magic. Vintage design is an open canvas – it can encompass various styles, and the joy lies in personalising and making it uniquely yours. Whether you’re aiming for timeless elegance or playful nostalgia, the techniques are what truly define the vintage essence.

Join me on this captivating course where you’ll learn traditional lampshade crafting skills that can be seamlessly integrated into modern styles, transforming pendant lamps and table lamps into stunning vintage pieces.

You’ll master the art of creating three traditional Victorian-inspired lampshades, gaining the skills to either enhance your own home decor or embark on a journey to establish your own lampshade-making venture.

No matter your style preferences, my vintage lampshade course will empower you to blend the past and present, creating lampshades that exude timeless elegance while reflecting your individuality.
