Lampshade Making

Liven up your living room or bedroom with your own A-frame or drum lampshade - get that professional finish, even if you have no previous sewing experience.


By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to:
• Mark and cut out the shape of lampshade onto backing
• Sew or glue seams of the fabric
• Attach fabric to the frame

Bring up to $40 cash to pay the tutor for the lampshade frame and other materials. You will also need to bring 1 metre of a firm fabric of your choice (a patterned fabric with a light background is effective in reflecting the light), a pair of fabric scissors, measuring tape, tailors' chalk and a 30cm ruler. [Please enrol at least one week before the course is due to run as supplies need to be ordered from outside Wellington]. 

Note:  Courses need a minimum number to go ahead so if we don't have enough enrolments a few days before the start date, we have to cancel. We'll let you know by email so please check yours regularly. If you need to cancel your registration, here are our terms and conditions: "What You Need to Know".
