So how many of you like WHITE STUFF?
Now I am not talking about the snow this time but about the shop. We have one in Ludlow at 6 Castle Square. They sell all kinds of things from clothes through to household items and at the moment are featuring some of the lampshades made by Jennifer Collier. Her lampshades are stunning and most innovative. She will be with me soon showing students how they are made and giving you all the advice needed about health and safety. These lamps with the shades are fully functioning and create a wonderful addition to your home.
This is the shop in Ludlow, where you can view Jennifers lampshades, and pick up a flier about the course at Moor Hall
So what will you be doing on this course. D
escribed by Jennifer as 'luxury' lampshades and that is certainly what they are, you will create
your own beautiful recycled paper lampshade using lovely vintage papers and by upcycling existing frames. You will be shown all steps of the process, from how to create a pattern to fit your frame, to how to stitch the papers together to form the shade.
THESE ARE NOT JUST ART LAMPSHADES BUT ARE FULLY FUNCTIONAL ONES AND I CAN THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE
will also be taught embellishment techniques, such as embossing, stamping, and various hand and machine stitches to decorate your light shade. Jennifer will provide all materials but asks students to bring along any special maps, papers, or books you may wish to incorporate and a lampshade frame to up-cycle (panel lampshades as pictured, rather than barrel) or Jennifer will have them available to buy on the day for £4-£9.
A fabulous course which is very popular with Jennifer's students.
