Create your own drum lampshade with fabric of your choice

Come and create your own bespoke drum lampshade with the fabric of your choice to work with your own interior colour scheme. We have three sizes available for you to choose from; 20cm, 30cm and 40cm in diameter. You will learn how to work with the pvc liner, attach the fabric correctly and create neat edges. You will then have a beautiful new lampshade to take home that can be used for a standard lamp or as a ceiling pendant.

Please select your lampshade size at checkout as this will be pre-ordered for you. Make sure you bring along your fabric in the corresponding dimensions listed here:

For a 20cm lampshade you will need to bring a piece of lightweight cotton / linen fabric 65cm wide x 25cm long (min).

For a 30cm lampshade you will need to bring a piece of lightweight cotton / linen fabric 97cm wide x 26cm long (min).

For a 40cm lampshade you will need to bring a piece of lightweight cotton / linen fabric 130cm wide x 30cm long (min).

This course is suitable for beginners.

I’m Emily Beaumont and I learnt the wonderful craft of upholstery at The Cass, part of London Metropolitan University under the watchful eye and huge skill of a fourth generation upholsterer. After 6 years of part-time study I was awarded a distinction for my Diploma from the AMUSF, so years of hard work definitely paid off! Whilst there I also discovered the much forgotten art of hand-tailored lampshades through the amazing skill of Angela Constantinou. I now work out of Brighton & Hove, a vibrant city which is a constant source of inspiration to me.

It has been a huge learning curve but one I feel very lucky to have been able to do. It is immensely satisfying to be able to work creatively with my hands using traditional tools, materials and methods. We live in a fast paced world and it is really nice to see what amazing things can be achieved with a bit of time.

My chairs can be described as traditionally modern reinventing beautifully made vintage frames into a chair that fits in today’s modern world. They are chairs that need to be seen and noticed as well as being gorgeously comfortable to sit on.
