Lampshade making is about to hit daytime TV! Anna Ryder Richardson will be demonstrating how to make a lampshade on the Alan Titchmarsh show on Fri 27th Jan at 3pm on ITV1. If you fancy having a go yourself, there are places available on my excellent morning courses at The Makery, where you can also buy all the materials you need to make more gorgeous lampshades at home, at very reasonable prices. Or you can always do one-to-one tuition with me at my home near Bristol. (Contact me) Here’s what a recent student of mine said:

Thank you so much for your tuition today, especially in the comfort of your lovely home.  I really enjoyed the one to one tuition as it was easier to focus on each task and to ask questions; and to go at my own pace.  I’m sure I could never have produced such a lovely lampshade otherwise!  Thanks for the inspiring chat about fabrics too.


Who is the Scottish Silent Quincy Lampshade Maker? Take your vote below!

I can’t claim that I have made every single lampshade by myself – in fact, 99% have been made with the help of my husband. He is silent because he has no Internet presence whatsoever. He is the maker because he helps me roll the second ring on to every PVC/fabric panel. The job is much quicker that way. But who is the Scottish Silent Maker? Take your vote below…

I now have a stash of utterly delicious fabrics, a box full of ringsets, a massive roll of Selopar hiding in my cupboard and lots of fab friends making orders – so much so I have had to set up a spreadsheet to keep tabs. Heather Whiteoak – you are customer No 1!

Welcome! Tell me your thoughts.
