“A big 'Thank You!' for the fabulous lampshade making workshop on Friday night. I had a great time and felt very well looked after. Your warm welcome, cakes and cups of tea were much appreciated, especially as I had travelled from York to join you. Georgia was a fabulous teacher - showing us how to make the lampshade step by step, providing very clear written as well as verbal instructions and giving us with support as we needed it. All the resources were readily available and Georgia's amazing fabrics are beautiful. I really enjoyed the whole experience and feel very proud of, and delighted with, the lampshade that I made, especially as a 'creative novice'. I posted a picture of the finished lampshade on my own Facebook page and have had a record 77 'likes'/'loves'/'wows' from my friends already!”
