Stencil Print & Make Your Own Lampshade



An immersive day of learning and creativity while making something beautiful for your home by the end of the day you will have gained two wonderful new skills, to stencil print and make a professional style lampshade.



Using Melanie’s own uniquely designed nature-inspired stencils, you’ll hand-print wild flowers, grasses, leaves and seed heads. The initial part of the morning is all about learning to create the botanical shapes, practice and build confidence. The next stage is stencilling your pattern onto the lampshade fabric, again with plenty of support and help for composition and design. An attractive selection of pre-mixed paints will be ready for your use, the only challenge is choosing which colours you want to stencil with.

The final stage of the afternoon is learning how to construct your drum lampshade, again with plenty of hints and tips for achieving professional looking results.

This is the perfect workshop for a fabulous day out with friends as all your lampshades will be different. No Sewing Required! All equipment and resources are included.
