You may have the opportunity to fabric line your shade too at this class depending on number in the class, your confidence and the time available. This will be determined and notified pre class to those booked. 

The price includes everything needed except fabric. Please bring along 0.5m of standard width fabric of your choice to go around the circumference of your shade (MUST BE MINIMUM OF 1.35m for the 15" larger shade). Cotton or linen is the best to use. Please NO silks, sheers or velvet/heavy upholstery fabric. If you decide to line your shade you will need the same amount of fabric in addition.  

A small number of fabrics may be available to choose from for anyone who forgets to bring their own. These cut pieces will be approx $10-15 to purchase on the day (cash only). Occasionally Claire will bring along some designer fabrics which will be approx $45 per 0.5m cut from the roll.  

WE DO NOT OFFER REMAKING OF OLD SHADES IN THIS CLASS, only the above sizing described. If you require a custom made or remade lampshade, we offer this service to make for you.
