Things to remember

WHAT TO BRING:

Please bring your own fabric - approximately 1m - thinner and finer fabrics are best - we recommend lawn cotton - fabrics such as linen are much harder to manipulate.

0.5m for your lining - a similarly light cotton is suitable.

We will have a small selection of fabrics, but please…

The workshop was wonderful. Claire was an excellent tutor, taking us slowly and carefully through the process and sharing her expertise. So pleased with my finished lampshade. Minerva is a really lovely studio and Lottie is a great host. Highly recommended.

The most fantastic course! I couldn’t recommend it more - such a fun way to spend a weekend and amazing knowledge taken from it.

I loved the course however I would recommend for the students to be able to take home a few pins etc that were used in the course and are essential tools to make a shade at home. A small gesture that would have made the difference.

Lovely workspace and environment. Great course and expert tutor Moji. I left with a beautiful lampshade and enthusiasm to make some more. I shall be back for more lampshade techniques and styles and also to try some of the other courses available. Thank you Lottie, thank you Moji and love to the other ladies - it was a great lil lampshade team. :) x Wahoooo!

I had a wonderful weekend with Moji learning how to make a pleated shade with pleated lining. She is a fantastic teacher and has a natural rapport with students. This was the second course I have done with Moji and would love to do more! The Minerva studio space is bright and well equipped, and it was lovey to sit and chat with like minded makers. Thank you!
