So many of you asked me to come to your town or city and teach a workshop that I had to find a way to make it happen. While I can't 'physically' make it, what I can do is 'virtually' be there. 

3Chooks is so excited to bring you our new Online LIVE Workshops. Learn how to make lampshades from the comfort of your own home. You'll spend a leisurely 3 hours online with me and a small group of like-minded-lovelies learning the ins and outs of lampshade making.

Set The Scene

Imagine walking into your home at dusk...

Rather than switching on the harsh downlights, you reach for the in-line switch on your table lamp, lighting your living room with warm lamplight that highlights a beautiful fabric. 

Next you wander over behind the couch and reach under a lampshade on your standard lamp (the one you found 15 years ago in a thrift store), it has a different but complementary fabric - it was a little more expensive, but worth every cent. The paintings on the wall are aglow. The scene is set. Switch on some great music, pour yourself a refreshing drink, sink into your favourite armchair and bask in the glow of another day well spent. 

Thats the feeling I get each evening when its time to turn on the lights. The pleasure I feel from using something I made, day in, day out is more than substantial...it really pleases me! 

Learn A New Skill

Spend a few hours online learning lampshade making with a small group of like-minded lovelies. 

You will need:

  • A 3Chooks Lampshade Making Kit - choose a 20cm or 30cm* Diameter
  • A gorgeous piece of fabric ready to go - 70x30cm for the 20cm Kit, or 100x30cm for the 30cm Kit
  • An iron and ironing board
  • A few clothes pegs - 20 will be plenty
  • A clear and clean workspace - a trestle table or dining table - protect precious surfaces with a protective cloth
  • And you'll need to set up your computer so I can see you and what you're doing

Optional tools (not essential):

  • Small chisel / paté knife / kids knife / round end butter knife or similar

20cm Kit: You will make a 20cm diameter x 23cm height cylinder lampshade – perfect for a bedside table, phone table or desk lamp. 

30cm Kit: You will make a 30cm diameter x 23cm height cylinder lampshade - perfect for a large bedside lamp, or table lamp. *Note that if you choose the 30cm option you may not have time to fully complete your lampshade in the 3 hour time slot. However you can watch all the steps and finish it later, or watch the recorded video of the workshop again later if you need to. 

How It Will Work

  • I'll be demonstrating live on screen making my own lampshade
  • You'll be making your lampshade at the same time
  • We'll work through the process step by step with time for you to make as we go along
  • You can share your screen too so I can do what you're doing, trouble shoot and problem solve on the go
  • You can see what other participants are doing, have a chat and make new friends
  • The whole workshop will be recorded so afterwards I'll send you a link and you can watch it all again at your leisure.

Location

Your place!

So many of you asked if I could come to your town and teach a workshop. I would so love to galavant around the countryside but alas time just doesn't allow it at the moment. So this is the next best thing! 

Set up your space so that its easy for you to see the screen of your computer, and hear the sound, plus I want to be able to see what you're doing - sometimes I might ask you to show me up close whats going on.
