Make a Lampshade - Saturdays


Saturday 2nd November

Saturday 7th December

10am - 1pm

We are introducing our first ever Saturday Lampshade making workshops to the Bothy. This is a great opportunity to have a day out in Cirencester, take in the weekend atmosphere, be creative & finish up in time for lunch at one of our many surrounding eateries. We also have some fantastic markets in the Town centre & Cornhall, as well as an abundance of shops for you to peruse. Click here to find out more:

The workshop is run by Sarah, our expert lampshade maker from Lollipop Lampshades, and is a fun course suitable for all abilities.

Includes all materials to make your own single lined drum lampshade (choose from 20cm, 25cm or 30cm diameter) excluding fabric. Bring along half a meter of your choice or browse our beautiful rolls next door at the Vanessa Arbuthnott showroom.

If you wish to use Vanessa Arbuthnott fabric for your lampshades, please call ahead of time to have the fabric ready to pick up on the day of the workshop. This will allow you to be on time for the class and gives our dispatch team enough time to roll out the fabric. Please call 01285 831437 to place your order. Many thanks
