Learn how to make your own traditional tailored lampshades at our weekend retreat set in the spectacular North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is also a UNESCO Global Geopark.
During this busy, 2-day workshop you will complete a traditional handmade, balloon lined, tailored shade and also gain the confidence to work on a variety of future lampshade projects using traditional methods and hand sewing techniques.
Hosted by the High Force Hotel in County Durham, which sits beside one of the UK’s most spectacular waterfalls, the two-day workshop will be led by interior design tutor Jacqueline Schultz of JS Interiors.
Suitable for beginners as well as more experienced sewers and crafters, the workshop will include two nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast at the High Force Hotel, access to High Force Waterfall, a welcome reception with drinks and canapes on the first night and expert tuition over two days with tea, coffee and a two-course lunch provided.
Weekend retreat price £379 (room upgrades may be available). Special rates available for guests who want to extend their stay and explore this beautiful area.
