MAKE YOUR OWN LAMPSHADE

WE’VE TEAMED UP WITH LUME LIGHT­ING TO BRING YOU A SPE­CIAL READER WORK­SHOP

The Simple Things - - HOW WE LIVE -

Light­bulb mo­ments will never be the same again! Join our Lampshade Mak­ing Work­shop with Lume Light­ing and ev­ery time you flick the switch you’ll be able to ad­mire your own hand­i­work and a de­sign that’s all of your own choos­ing. Lume Light­ing is the brain­child of Joanna Cor­ney, a maker and de­signer who has run her home­ware busi­ness for sev­eral years. Lume was born out of Joanna’s pas­sion for cre­at­ing be­spoke hand­made lamp­shades – a pas­sion she now shares with oth­ers through her lampshade mak­ing work­shops, based at her lovely work­ing stu­dio by the sea, in Hove.

A CRE­ATIVE DAY OUT

Fe­bru­ary’s work­shop is be­ing held ex­clu­sively for The Sim­ple Things read­ers and is ideal for be­gin­ners who want to learn the craft of con­tem­po­rary lampshade mak­ing. You will be given all the skills you need to make your very own cus­tom shade, meet­ing like-minded peo­ple and eat­ing some de­li­cious food along the way.

You will make ei­ther a 20cm or 30cm di­am­e­ter fab­ric drum lampshade, which can be used on a lamp base or ceil­ing pen­dant. By the end of the work­shop you will get to go home with your very own be­spoke lampshade – pos­si­bly the first of many more beau­ti­ful cus­tomised shades.
