Lampshade making parties

Posted on: 01/06/2012

This week I travelled to a darling Methodist Chapel in Oldbury-on-Severn to teach five lovely ladies how to make handmade lampshades. Organised by Elly for herself and her friends, this was an opportunity to spend a quiet Monday night doing something really sociable and crafty, with the brilliant bonus of learning a new skill and going away with a lampshade made by their own fair hand with which to decorate their homes. All that was needed was me and my materials, some pushed-together tables, a plug (for that all-important iron) and for the ladies to each bring general purpose scissors, a tape measure, a pencil and half a metre of their favourite fabric. There was lots of laughter and gentle teasing over who was Teacher’s Pet…

If you are interested in organising a lampshade making party for you and your friends please contact me.

Hello Lee!

Where are you based? I can travel reasonable distances in the UK – but not abroad! Ruth

Ruth, I’m in the United States, and in the state of Kansas. If you took a map and put your pencil down in the middle of the country, you’d most likely be in Kansas. I imagine that’s a little far for you to travel 🙂 Still, I will enjoy your blog. I pinned it on Pinterest on my Blogs I Like Board. Lee

Ah, yes. Well, a little too far! What’s your Pinterest handle – I’d like to see what you like too!
