Tess Wakeling will guide and help you make a lampshade for your home using beautiful handmade paper from Japan and Nepal. Learn how to cut and score restful geometric patterns into the surface and then roll and finish with a cotton-stitched seam. Your finished lampshade can be hung as a pendant or fitted to any existing table lamp.
You will have a choice of making a drum lampshade either 20cm or 25cm diameter. A selection of colours of Lokta or Kozo papers will be there for you to choose from, and a selection of coloured threads to stitch your seam together at the end if you choose. If time you may also wish to experiment with the materials and make some paper-cut cards or small window decorations to take home with you.
Date: Saturday 21st March 2020
Time: 10.00 – 16.00
What do I need to bring?: If you are making your lampshade for a particular room in the house, you may want to bring photos or samples so that you can match the colours on the day. Otherwise, just bring yourself. There will be teas and coffees provided, we will break for lunch so you may want to bring a packed lunch and/or snacks, or pop out to one of the cafes and shops in Old Market.
