View the lampshade course dates visit our workshops page!   Also, with the skills you learn with me, you can then go home and strip down an old lampshade to recover.  Instructions are here if you want to see what you are getting yourself into!

The platform celebrates recent UK graduates who have ideas for a greener cleaner future with an innovative mix of “green” products for the home.
