Traditional Tailored Lampshade Course - 2 day
In this amazing 2 day workshop, you will learn how to make a traditional tailored, lined lampshade, using the fabric of your choice. Anna will teach you how to create a beautiful 'soft' lampshade using traditional methods - hand sewn and hand made. Unlike the contemporary 'hard' or laminated shades, these are usually curved in style, have a soft fabric cover, and soft "balloon" lining. They are made using various types of fabric such as silk, cotton, and wool, all of which can be tailored for a perfect fit. They will then be expertly finished by hand using lovely trims including bindings, tassels and fringes The lampshades do take time to create, there is much hand sewing and skill involved, but this 2 day workshop will equip you with all the knowledge and experience you need to go on to make many more beautiful lampshades for every room in your home!
Day 1: planning the fabric placement - we cut the fabric on the bias - making the pattern, wrapping the frame and pinning and sewing the cover in place-making the lining
Day 2: Sewing the lining into place, making and adding hard trims
