Meet and Make with the Designer! Suzie London Lampshade Workshop
This is a brilliant chance to meet and make alongside the designer behind gorgeous homewares and accessories brand Suzie London.
In this exclusive workshop, you'll meet Suzie and get to work hands on with her instantly recognisable, colourful fabrics, designed by Suzie and printed right here in London. She'll talk to you about her life as a designer, and then lead you through the process of turning her fabrics into a drum lampshade.
You'll learn how to line up the fabric, attach it to specialist lampshade vinyl (glow tested and certified) and then craft it into a 30cm lampshade that can be hung from a celing rose or mounted on a standard lamp. Once you've learned the technique, you'll be able to follow in Suzie's footsteps and create lampshades of your own in different sizes. You'll leave with info on all the suppliers and lots of top tips too, so you can make lampshades just as good (or probably better) than the ones you buy from big retailers.
This is perfect for anyone who's interested in starting a creative business, as it's a chance to ask Suzie questions about her own brand and her journey as a creative entrepreneur. Plus you'll leave with your first product skill under your belt.
Or if you just want a beautiful, lovingly designed and made lampshade to brighten up your home now that the lights are coming on earlier, this will be a wonderful way to pass the afternoon. You don't need any experience at all as we'll take you through every step of the process.
Suzie's teaching is friendly and supportive - whether you're skilled or a beginner she'll help you make something to be really proud of. Choose from three of Suzie's colourful bold designs, and let's make gorgeous stuff together!
