“I recently attended one of Jane Warren’s (drum) Lampshade Making workshops, and what a fantastic morning it was!
Jane is a great tutor, her clear instruction, patient and friendly approach made the morning so much more enjoyable.
I am so impressed that in just 3 hours Jane taught me how to create a fabulous lampshade which now hangs
proudly in my living room!” Ingrid
"I cannot recommend Jane Warren and The Lampshade Loft highly enough for the wonderful course on traditional
lampshade making. Not only is Jane a gracious and thoughtful host, but also what she doesn't know about traditional
lampshade making is not worth knowing. Time is taken at every point in the tutorials to make sure you have
thoroughly grasped the techniques to ensure that your shade is perfect in every way. Many many thanks"
Dawn, at the Sewing Box
'Thank you so much for a fabulous lampshade workshop. I loved learning the traditional method, it is such a lovely
skill to have. It is very therapeutic too!! Your teaching methods are so calm and inspiring which comes from your love
of what you do! I look forward to doing another of your lovely classes in the near future. Thank you.'

'I can't recommend lampshade tutorials with Jane from the Lampshade Loft enough! I attended Jane's drum shade course and had such a fab day.
Jane's way of teaching is excellent and as a result I came away with a comprehensive understanding of the processes involved. Having had such an enjoyable experience I wanted to learn more and asked Jane if she would teach me the traditional lampshade craft. Not only have I come away with a new skill/business as a result of Jane's teaching and passion, I feel I have also made a friend! Sarah SW4 Interiors
