Learn how to make beautiful lampshades you'll love forever

Lampshade Making Workshop with 3Chooks

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! 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the class on Sunday and the ease with which you presented the class.  I have a BA in Adult Education, so please take my comments as high praise." Kim recently attended my class at Sew Make Create.

Make your own lampshades

Learn to make your own unique lamp shade with 3Chooks lampshade maker Anna (that's me ;-). 

Bring along your own choice of fabric (70cm x 30cm) for a very personal result. You'll make and take home a 20cm diameter x 23cm height cylinder lampshade – perfect for a bedside table, phone table or desk lamp.

A 3Chooks Lampshade Kit is included plus access to the tools you need to create your masterpiece and one on one instruction from Anna.

Extra take home supplies available for purchase. And for double the fun, bring along a lovely friend to craft and catch up...perfect!
