About the workshop
Make a lampshade in your own choice of design, colours and fabrics! On this course you will spend the day creating your own lampshade measuring 20cm x 20cm. Lampshade kits will be supplied and are £10 each. 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. Once you've stitched out your unique creation, you will then spend the last hour of the day making it up into a lampshade.
Please bring your sewing machine, general sewing kit, sharp scissors and an embroidery hoop. If you want to bring your own thin fabrics, threads and designs 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.
If you don't have a sewing machine, you are welcome to rent one for £5.00 - please let Zig Zags know at the time of booking and they will sort it out for you. If their machines get booked up, I can bring spare sewing machines - if this is the case, payment will be due in cash to me on the day for use of any of my machines.
I have a supply of fabrics, threads and design ideas that you will be welcome to use!
