Make a Lampshade in Martinborough!
August 25, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm$90
Saturday 25 August 2018 10.30am-1pm $90 (At Peonies Home and Living, Jellicoe St Martinborough)
Come find out how easy it is to make your own lampshades. You don’t need any sewing or interior decorating experience.
The tuition fee is $90, which includes all of the frame and construction materials used. Does not include fashion fabric, which you supply.
How to choose a fabric: Light background prints work for lampshades as they allow the light to come through them the best. A printed fabric is better for beginners than a plain, as it is more likely to hide any less than perfect bits. Stripes and plaids are tricky and require patience and accuracy – if you are up for it then feel free to bring one!
Please choose a closely woven medium weight linen, curtain weight cotton or linen, or a quilting cottons or linen. Unsuitable fabrics include silks, polyester silk style curtaining, loosely woven fabrics and treated polyester or acrylic canvas (deck chair/awning types) so please give them a miss.
