Shade School


********Traditional shade making dates for AW16 / SS17 . Book here! ********

I run a very popular Shade School to share my passion for the fine craft of traditional lampshade making. Within this one day workshop, I share my professional experience and tips and teach small groups how to make lampshades to traditional methods – lots of hand stitching and no nasty glues! I love to teach. Here are what people have said after attending my Shade School:

“Zoe’s class was absolutely excellent. The step by step instructions were very clear and I would feel confident making a shade on my own in the future. I’m absolutely in love with the lampshade I created on the day and I could never have achieved that without Zoe’s expert help!” Helen Foot

“Thanks so much for a fantastic course. You’re a great tutor. Inspiring.” Jane Baker
