Jennifer Collier: Paper Lampshades


Create a 30 x 30cm 6 panel lampshade from beautiful recycled papers. You will be provided with a pattern, which you will have the opportunity to customize to suit your taste, and the light shade frame (which can be an up or down lighter). You will spend the day working with vintage papers to create the panels for the shade, and will be shown embellishment techniques to decorate these. You will then be shown to how to stitch the papers together to form the shade. NB There will be a £10 charge (payable on the day) for the light shade frame and paper pattern. You may also wish to bring your own special papers, books and maps to personalize *As these shades are machine stitched together YOU MUST BE ABLE TO USE A SEWING MACHINE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORKSHOP*
