I must say I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s workshop and love my lampshade!  You were very welcoming and friendly, and you let us browse through all your stock!   I found your instructions were clear and concise followed up by individual help when needed.  I will have no hesitation recommending you for your workshops or commissions – your work on show in your space is amazing!

I thought the materials provided were of a high quality and the selection of fabrics was brilliant. The addition of trims, pompoms etc was a nice touch too. The demonstrations and explanations were very clear and concise.  

Thank you very much for such an enjoyable course yesterday. I absolutely love my new lampshade and can’t quite believe that I made it! 
I had a great experience at the workshop. It was well organised and the method of making a lampshade was broken down into an easy to follow process. It was a lovely, friendly environment and a great way to spend a Saturday morning.  I can’t think of any changes or improvements necessary. 
I would be interested in a class making tailored lampshades.
