CODE: 25th APRIL > OUT OF STOCK IN STOCK
This workshop is now fully booked but there are spaces on the same workshop on Tuesday 30th May.
Make a lampshade in your own choice of design, colours and fabrics!
On this course you will spend the day in my lovely garden studio creating your own lampshade measuring 20cm x 20cm. Lampshade kits will be supplied and this includes the frames and the backing fabric to make your shade.
Experience of doing some free motion embroidery is useful but not essential as I will be teaching a variety of techniques that you will be able to use to create your design.
You will spend the morning learning different techniques from my demonstrations, then putting them into practice. After lunch you will make your finished piece. Once you've stitched out your unique creation, you will then spend the last hour of the day making it up into a lampshade.
What to bring
Please bring your sewing machine, general sewing kit, sharp scissors and an embroidery hoop. If you want to bring your own design ideas please do so. You will also need to have a sewing machine where the feed dogs can be lowered to enable free-motion stitching, as well as a darning/embroidery foot for your machine.
All fabrics will be supplied but feel free to bring your own thin fabrics if you have a particular colour scheme in mind. Thin fabrics include cottons such as patchwork and quilting fabrics or shirt material.
If you don't have a sewing machine, you are welcome to rent one for £5.00, please select 'Rent a Sewing Machine' below.
A general sewing kit comprises spare bobbins, spare needles (machine and hand sewing), threads, small scissors for cutting thread, pins and a tape measure.
I have a supply of fabrics, threads and design ideas that you will be welcome to use!
This workshop will run from 10am until 4pm so please also bring a packed lunch. Hot drinks and cake will be supplied throughout the day! If it's a sunny day we will sit in the garden and have our lunch.
