Sunday the 8th of September saw my first whole day of lampshade making in our Frome shop. We used the individual lampshade kits now stocked by Millie Moon which make the whole activity that more approachable to beginners-not to mention more affordable, if you only want to make one, or a few for personal use.
Eight lovely women attended the morning and afternoon workshops and as ever, the range of fabrics chosen varied greatly from person to person. So at the end of each workshop there were four very professional , individual lampshades to wear (!)
Or of course, you could make them as gifts or adorn your home with them, which probably makes more sense!
The sheer delight of these is they are so easy to do once you have made your first one. There is no sewing involved at all, so they are really relatively quick to complete, certainly something you could make one evening after work on your kitchen table.
They are a really affordable way of adding some individuality to your home decor, we worked out to make a size 30 cm barrel shade using our kit and buying 40cm of your chosen fabric would cost just £ 20.60.
Come along and Join Fromemaid Vickie on the next Lampshade workshop - Wells on October 20th. Followed by another in Frome on January 5th. Price £40 including all materials
