A half day workshop with Sue Palin to make a simple drum lampshade, raising funds for Mashamshire Community Office. Sue lives in Masham and as well as running ArtisOn, she is also a Trustee and Treasurer at MCO – no one knows better how important it is that we raise the funds to buy the MCO building. She is giving her time for free today, along with all staff and tutors, to allow this vital charity to continue to serve the Masham community.

During this fun afternoon session, you will learn all about how to make a professional-looking drum lampshade to take home. All the equipment to make a lampshade suitable for a lamp or a ceiling pendant is provided and included in the price. So your lampshade matches your décor, you will need to bring your chosen fabric for the lampshade. However, all other materials are included. You will make a drum lampshade of 20cm or 30cm diameter and we recommend you bring a fabric approximately 70cm by 22cm or 97cm wide and 26cm respectively. Lightweight cotton is the best weight and the easiest to get a perfect finish, but a heavier cotton or linen can work too.

You will have plenty of time to make and finish your lampshade and you might even have time to have a go at a mini lantern too. Get to know the other participants over a lovely two course homemade lunch which is all included and will be available from 12:30pm ready for the workshop to start at 1:30pm.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.

There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to!

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. All refreshments are included.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

What you’ll need to bring with you

All equipment and the lampshade kits are provide but ideally please bring fabric as below:

20cm x 18cm - A fabric piece at least 70cm x 22cm)
30cm x 21cm - A fabric piece at least 97cm wide and 26cm

We have quite a fabric stash at Artison so if this is a problem we will have some to choose from.
