Gathered lampshade making course with Eloise Scotland
Come and learn the skills needed to make your own gathered lampshade. Over the course of four evenings, you will be shown how to bind the lampshade frame, measure and manipulate the fabric to create the gathers, line the lampshade, and finish it with your own choice of trimmings. The course predominantly involves hand stitching, and a small amount of machine sewing. No previous experience of either is required, just a passion for textiles and the patience to sit and enjoy the process of sewing in a room full of fellow textile enthusiasts.
This will be a fast paced course, with some additional time needed to complete the sewing at home during the week! At the end of the course we will discuss sourcing of frames, materials and other supplies. Students will leave with the confidence, knowledge (and enthusiasm!) to go on to create their own beautiful lampshades after the course has finished.
Eloise will supply lampshades frames and suitable lining fabric. Students should bring their own basic sewing kit (scissors, needles, pins, tape measure, thimble) and their own choice of top fabric (one metre of full width fabric will be sufficient). Suitable fabrics include lightweight cottons (e.g. quilting weight cotton, Liberty Tana Lawn), lightweight linen and silk (e.g. those suitable for dressmaking). Curtain and upholstery weight fabrics are too heavy and should be avoided.
