All levels welcome
3 hour workshop
Todd Sloane, CM16
Bring any room to life with this awesome oversized lampshade in some of our favourite fabrics of all time! Great lampshades are hard to find - make a brilliant one in this session and leave with the skills to make more whenever you want.
In this three hour workshop you'll make your own drum lampshade. Choose from Tropical Fern, Monochrome Crosses or Terrazzo and we'll email you after you book to find out what print you'd like.
We'll give you all the elements you need to create the lampshade, and we'll lead you through every step of the process. You don't need any crafting experience of any kind to leave with a professional standard statement sized shade. The final piece is 40cm wide x 25cm high, 10 whole cm wider than the standard type.
Lampshades are covers that spread the light produced by a lamp's light bulb. They were first used on public lanterns in Italy and France in the late 1700s to focus light downwards onto the street.

London is a hub of creativity, culture, and of course, craft, but it’s also a terrible time thief. London Craft Club founder, Sonia, used to be a member of an awesome little group called Crafty Mums. They were creative, crafty, motivated and united in their interests – but only once in all the years of meeting did they do any actual crafting together! Work, commuting, parenting and all the rest seemed to leave no time to do all the fabulous craft projects that were possible.
Sonia really believed that crafting can be so good for you. Good for socialising, good for sustainability, good for creativity, good for happiness. So she started London Craft Club. It’s a friendly, fun place for you to easily try new crafts or pick up an old one in lots of different London venues. No fuss, no bother, you can rock up with just your lovely self and leave with an amazing finished piece you’ve made in just a couple of hours. We’ve got all the right kit, equipment and templates you could possibly need, so you can focus on enjoying the crafting and making.
Sonia studied Glass and Sculpture at University, and sews, knits and even welds from time to time. She also spend many years working in education in all sorts of unusual and informal environments, so London Craft Club has grown out of her twin love of teaching and making. Along the way she's also met some great craft teachers , and shared her teaching skills with them too.
So welcome to the Club – come along to one of the crafty sessions soon and get in on the craft thing!
