In our Tailor-made Lampshade Workshops with Folly and Glee, its not just the lampshades that are Tailor-made but the workshops themselves. Get in touch to book your own private lampshade class from one-to-one lessons up to groups of 6 people. Workshops will take place either in our workshop in Lewes or at Polly’s rural studio in Ringmer.
Polly Kettley – Lampshade maker extraordinaire – offers the perfect introduction into making your own lampshades – Polly offers a large range of lampshade workshops from traditional methods, to a quick and easy approach. Workshops can also focus on fixing up and revamping old light fittings and shade.
The workshop is strictly limited to 6 participants in order to ensure everyone has the personal attention they need. You don’t need any prior experience of lampshade making, although a basic level of sewing skills are required. All materials to make one shade are included in the cost of the workshop and if you are a fan of Polly’s distinctive vintage style then you can select your fabric from Folly &Glee’s collection of stunning original vintage barkcloths, or choose from a large selection of fabric from The Patchwork Dog and Basket. If you prefer bring your own fabric along – you’ll need less than a metre for most shades.
