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!


Screenprint your own Lampshade Workshops - gain two new creative skills in one day!

By Jane Warren, Jan 23 2015 03:38PM

Have you ever thought about designing your own fabric? The fabrics on sale in the shops are wonderful of course, but hardly unique - they are on sale to everyone! Often people ask me to make them lampshades for two reasons - they cant find anything that goes with their interiors, and they cant find anything different or unusual. By learning the art of screenprinting, you can use your own design, and then print it onto fabric, and then turn it into a lampshade.

So here is your opportunity to do just that - come along to a workshop with the wonderful and talented Zeena Shah, where she will guide you in your design, teach you how to create stencils, and then screen print this onto fabric. In the afternoon - I will teach you how to make this into a 20cm drum lampshade - perfect as a table lamp, or a small ceiling lamp - the choice is yours.

These two fantastic skills that you will learn in one day will equip you with the skills to make many more bespoke and genuinely original fabric designs and lampshades, they were sell outs in 2014 so- sign up today!

The first class of this year is on Saturday 28th March 2015 and is being held at Zeena's studio in East London - sign up here:

Hope to see you there!
