An Introduction to Lampshade Dressing with Jamie Reed

An Introduction to Lampshade Dressing with Jamie Reed

Do you have a lampshade that you've fallen out of love with? Or maybe you are giving a room a makeover and want to change the lampshade to blend in with your new colour scheme? Perhaps you would just like to have a go at creating something totally unique!?

This two-day course will teach you the necessary skills to dress existing lamp shade frames in the Victorian style using contrasting fabrics, trims, feathers etc.

A shade can be completed over the course time, but you will be given the skills to be able to perfect the craft at home if you don’t manage to finish before the course ends.

A selection of frames and all sundries will be provided. Fabric will also be available, but you are encouraged to bring at least 2 complimentary or contrasting fabrics of your personal preference.

A tasty buffet lunch will also be served each day.

Students are invited to make this a residential break and stay in one of our 15 individually designed bedrooms, themed to house the owners’ eclectic collection of furniture, pictures and books. If you select this dinner, bed and breakfast option, you are invited the night prior to the course to enjoy a scrumptious home-cooked dinner and perhaps get to meet your fellow students.

Our Tutor
Our course Tutor Jamie Reed is an antique furniture and lighting restorer, who makes shades to compliment his restored standard lamps.

With over 20 years of experience, Jamie honed his skills in furniture making at two of the country's most prestigious cabinet making workshops, making furniture for rock stars and royalty, before founding Reed Restoration.
