Lampshades don’t have to be boring, they can be art!
As well as creating my own paper lampshades I’ve discovered that anyone else can have a go too – at one of my Papershades workshops. There are details on the website: www.papershades.co.uk along with a calendar of the dates when I plan to to hold them (usually the last weekend of each month). There’s a short film which gives a good idea about how they work.
But the glory of these workshops is that they can be set up anywhere – as long as there’s a big enough table, or tables, and a power plug. I bring all the materials and the event is fuelled by plentiful supplies of tea, coffee and cake.
At the workshops in December I was blown away by the variety of skill and creativity which everyone brought to the table (literally!). Each lampshade was made from a single template – a piece of A4 card – and reflected personality, passion and love for special people. The results were a joy to see and everyone had fun.
If you’re interested in coming to a workshop, or setting one up in your own space, please do drop me a line.
