Printing your own lampshade
By Jane Warren, Apr 14 2014 06:06PM
Last Saturday Zeena Shah and I held a collaborative workshop in both screen printing and lampshade making at her inspirational London studio.
Each of the lovely attendees started the morning by devising their original design, and then Zeena taught them how to screen print it - in two colours onto calico, a wonderful fabric to use for lampshade making. Once they had created this panel, I then taught them how to make this into a lampshade - we chose a 20cm drum shade to fit a lampbase.
The originality and level of artistry really shines through the shades now, illuminating their wonderful designs into something truly bespoke for the home! It was a lovely day where everyone agreed learning two creative skills in one day really worked.
You can join the next workshop we have planned at Zeena's studio on Saturday June 7th - please see Zeena's website for detail www.zeenashah.com
