The workshop runs for approximately 2½ hours. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills!
The price includes tools and materials except the fabric, which you will need to bring with you (there will be a small selection available to purchase on the day).
Who is the class for?
Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome! Suitable for complete beginners or those with more experience, it's a nice relaxed and friendly class.
Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will need and the basic techniques you will learn. You’ll choose to make either a 20cm or 30cm lampshade which can fit either a pendant light or lamp base. Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating gorgeous, professional standard lampshades!
The price includes everything you need except the fabric, which you will need to bring with you (there will be a small selection available to purchase on the day, but we can't guarantee it will suit your home). Refreshments are included.
What are the design options?
When you arrive at your class, you will be given the choice of either a 20cm or a 30cm lampshade. How it will look all depends on the fabric you bring! You'll make a double-sided shade, so it's up to you what design you have on the inside, and what you have on the outside.
What do I need to bring?
It's a double-sided shade, so you'll need 2 pieces of fabric; one for the inside, one for the outside. A woven fabric without stretch is best (we recommend cotton, linen or poly blends). Both pieces of fabric will need to be at least 30cm wide x 100cm long (just ask your fabric supplier to cut 30cm, the length of your piece of fabric will be the standard width of the roll).
If you use reading glasses or similar, you may wish to bring them too.
How long will the class last?
The class will last approximately 2 to 2½ hours. It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run depending on group sizes.
Where is the class held?
Classes are held in The Little Craftery in Field Row, Worthing, which is designed to be a functional, comfortable workspace for up to 3 participants. The shop will be closed to the public during your class, so you don’t need to worry about interruptions. If you have any special access requirements, please contact Wendy at The Little Craftery before you book to discuss, and to find out if access is available for you.
Do we need to book?
Yes, please do book in advance, as there are a limited number of places on each class (a maximum of 3 people per workshop), and we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed! We require full payment in advance in order to secure your booking. Online payments will be taken securely by either Square or Paypal (don’t worry, you don’t have to have a Paypal account!). If you’d rather not book online, you can book in person at The Little Craftery.
Can I cancel or reschedule my booking?
If you are unable to attend your class, please let us know as soon as possible. Cancellations made up to 7 whole days before the class will receive a full refund. Cancellations made within 7 days, or failure to show up for your class will not be eligible for a refund.
In any circumstance where a class is cancelled by The Little Craftery, we will attempt to contact you in advance as soon as possible to either reschedule or offer a full refund, as you prefer.
