Lampshade Workshops

Freehand Machine Embroidered Lampshade Workshop

In this workshop you will learn how to create a lampshade using freehand machine embroidery. By the end of the workshop you will have your own 20 cm drum lampshade that you can use as either a ceiling light or on table lamp. You can create one of your own designs or you can work from my example lampshades. 

All materials and the lampshade kits will be provided but if you would like to bring along any of your own fabrics to use on the day please do. I would recommend that you have done some previous Freehand Machine Embroidery before attending, why not try our beginner’s workshop

If you get the opportunity to join one of these workshops then I wholeheartedly recommend it - Meg is a fantastic teacher who creates the most beautiful stitches - it’s a fab few hours of chatter and creativity which is so good for the soul! Cannot wait for the next one.....


I've had the BEST day for a long time with Meg, who knew I could make the most glorious lampshade, I didn't, but Meg DID. Patience, humour, creativity and knowledge are her watch words. Sign me up for the next one please
