Paper Cut Lampshade Workshop


Make a lampshade for your home using beautiful handmade paper from Nepal and Japan. Learn how to cut and score restful geometric patterns into the surface, and then roll and finish with a cotton stitched seam. Your finished drum lampshade can be used as a pendant or table lamp.

Lampshade size will be either 20cm or 25sm diameter.

Spaces are limited to ensure you receive as much guidance as you need so we shall have a maximum number of 4 students per session.

Please note that places on our workshops are non-refundable but are transferable to a friend. We automatically send out a beautiful voucher as part of the booking process so it makes a great gift for someone too!

Tess' interest in paper and lighting has taken her to Japan where she learnt about traditional lantern making and paper sculpture. She has made links with paper makers in India and Nepal, and buy much of her papers from these suppliers who work with rural communities in ways that are sustainable and ecologically sound.

Tess teaches basket making as a therapeutic craft at Ruskin Mill College near Stroud, Gloucestershire; a college for students with special educational and behavioral challenges. Alongside teaching Tess takes commissions for lighting projects. She also loves to create larger work and has been involved in a project creating carnival art for Shambala festival over the last two years. You can see more about Tess here.
