PAPER LAMPSHADE WORKSHOP – NEW FOR 2022!

New for 2022! Come and make a fabulous paper lampshade at a Papershades workshop.  Led by paper collage artist Rosalind Freeborn, you’ll have a huge variety of paper to choose from to create a design of your own on one piece of A4 card.  Once you are happy with your design, Ros will print it onto five panels of special paper and then you’ll assemble the paper shade using two wheel-shaped supports which fit onto table lamps and room lights. Everyone goes home with a beautiful and totally unique lampshade which will brighten up your home whether the lights are on or off.
