Make a professional Hand rolled Drum lampshade from your chosen fabric with Sonja Tileard

These are two separate courses taking place on the same day - choose either morning or afternoon. If you wish to make two shades, enrol for both and bring some sandwiches for the midday break between 12.45pm and 1.15pm

You are welcome to bring your own material - or alternatively choose some from Sonja's lovely selection - and learn how the professionals make that perfect hand rolled drum lampshade.  The price includes a 25cm lampshade kit and you can bring your own material (full width, half metre). If you wish to upgrade to a larger shade size, use double-sided kits (so that material is used on the inside of the shade too)  or purchase any of Sonja's lovely fabric there may be a few £'s extra charge. Remember, if you choose the double sided option you will need twice as much material.
