Welcome to the Lampshade Loft Blog

My name is Jane Warren and I love interiors - especially how they are lit up and enhanced by lovely lampshades. I make shades and teach you how to as well, so sign up and learn how to make them in your own choice of fabric.

In my blog here I offer tips on how to make the best lampshades - oversized, using paper, if to line or not and other random subjects all to do with shades!

Please read about my collaborations and inspirations on this blog, and sign up to receive my newsletter to hear more news and tips!

I am pleased to say that we have now got dates for the new lampshade workshops for the early part of 2020! You can learn how to make:

- Gathered lampshades

- Traditional lampshades - either unlined in a one-day class or lined in a two-day class

- Drum lampshades

- and also make a string of lovely lights with Liberty fabric mini lampshades!

In the classes you will, as well as perfecting the art of learning how to make lampshades, learn about using other materials such as paper, making and attaching hand sewn trims, whether to line or not and lots of other useful information! You will leave equipped to make shades on a professional footing or just for fun, the choice is yours.

Full handouts are given at all classes allowing you to reference these for all future learnings (although I do like to hear from students after the classes should you have any questions!)

Please book through Clothkits website and get yourself booked into learning these wonderful new skills!
