Welcome to the Lampshade Loft Blog

My name is Jane Warren and I love interiors - especially how they are lit up and enhanced by lovely lampshades. I make shades and teach you how to as well, so sign up and learn how to make them in your own choice of fabric.

In my blog here I offer tips on how to make the best lampshades - oversized, using paper, if to line or not and other random subjects all to do with shades!

Please read about my collaborations and inspirations on this blog, and sign up to receive my newsletter to hear more news and tips!

 

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
