Fun Lampshade Making Workshop

Make your own drum style lampshade to blend with your home design, have fun with friends or make new ones, this hands on and fun workshop is a great introduction to the thrill of making something yourself that looks great without taking you to the edge of a creative breakdown....

Lampshade sizes are 20 cm diameter and 18cm high and can be used for a pendant or table lamp.

Larger lamp shades sizes are available for purchase on the day. If you plan to make a larger shade sizes and fabric requirements are as follows;
30cm x 21cm - fabric covering 970mm x 255mm - £13.00
40 x 25cms - fabric covering 1282mm x 288mm - £15.00
45 cms x 25cm - fabric covering 1490 mm x 290mm  - £17.00

Please check with us beforehand to make sure we have the size you want in stock.

Suitable for beginners, you can bring your own fabric which needs to be at least 645 x 220 mms for the 20cm diameter lampshade and 970mm x 255mm for the 30cm diameter lampshade, or you can buy from a selected range of fabric for sale at Number 57.
Number 57 stocks a range of mostly plain Moda 100% cotton fabric, but we do have a limited patterned selection. Bringing your own may be more fun and ensures that you have a fabric you love, and suits your home or wherever its going to find a home.
If you are bringing your own fabric take care when choosing directional fabrics and patterns. Light to medium weight cotton works best. Heavy weight/ thicker fabrics are not suitable and no stretchy fabric!
Linen, silk, voile fray and slide very readily, so they are not ideal but can be used with care so allow for this.
Its possible to manage the fraying but if in doubt you can contact Number 57 beforehand to make sure your choice of fabric is okay.
Refreshments and all other materials included.
Lampshade making kits in a choice of sizes are available for purchase at Number 57 if you want to go home equipped to make more.
