Brand New Workshop! Floor lamps are the perfect addition to any room, making cosy instantly! Floor Lamps are so hard to find, let alone one that you like the colour and the shade matches your decor perfectly. Well, that’s all about to change! Creating your own, in whatever colour you like and whatever shade you like! WOOO HOOOO. This workshop allows you to create your own 40cm lampshade from a range of fabrics! The floor lamp is a timber stand that is 123cm in height (without shade) , the lampstand also comes with an inline foot switch. The colour is all up to you, but Joanne Condon will be there to guide you through colour options and fabric choices (that’s her favourite part)
- The basics of painting, how to prep, and paint any timber surface.
- Making a 40cm lampshade, choosing from a range of fabrics.
- Afternoon tea, complete with sandwiches and cupcakes to feast on!
So you enter our workshop empty handed and leave with a bespoke floor lamp in your own style!
