Make Your Own Lampshade or Bottle Lamp Workshop

Come along to this fun and informal workshop at the Braw Wee Emporium where we’ll take you through the steps to make your very own 30cm Drum Lampshade or very own boozy bottle lamp with a 25cm drum lampshade. 


Just need to bring your own fabric (and bottle if you chose that option) and we’ll provide the rest including some refreshments. 

Your covering needs to be 970mm wide x 255mm to cover the self-adhesive panel supplied. We recommend that you don't bring along too heavy a weight fabric for your first lampshade, not stretchy cotton is perfect for beginners!  

We can recommend getting your fabric from our neighbours at Fabric Bazaar or Mandor’s in the City Centre.

You’ll also have the opportunity to buy your own lampshade making kits to use at home after the workshop too.
