A lampshade kit to make a small bedside lampshade is provided and included in the price. You bring your choice of fabric OR you may select one of Georgia’s fabulous fabric designs for £5 for the small shade. You can always upgrade to a larger shade for a small additional cost.

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, the lampshade kits are provided.
You can bring your own fabric if you wish OR if you choose to select one of Georgia's gorgeous fabrics there is an additional cost of £5.

“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!”
