Pleated lampshades

a one day course to master core skills 

A pleated lampshade is gloriously smart and offers the most impact of all when lit. Pleated shades are gorgeous in block printed fabrics, super smart with silk dupion... and there’s plenty of scope for your own unique ideas too.

Join lampshade maker, author of best-selling book Sewing Lampshades and teacher Joanna Heptinstall for a creative and industrious day concentrating on pleated lampshade making skills. You will learn the basic principals behind all pleated shades, and will make your own shade with super-precise knife pleats on a French drum frame.

Forthcoming dates
