Do you have a perfectly lovely small lamp at home that would like a raffia facelift? Perhaps you just love the look of raffia in your home as an interiors material – why not, what’s not to love? Now is your chance to create your own bespoke raffia lampshade. Choose from a variety of styles, see below for inspiration. If you like to up-cycle, this is the workshop for you. Why not buy a lampshade bargain from a charity shop and give it a raffia make over?
In this workshop you will have the chance to experience the joy of working with raffia, learn new techniques and different styles and take home a lamp that perhaps was even made in 1993 but has just enjoyed a lovely raffia face-lift. All raffia is supplied, if you have a small table lamp with a shade at home then please bring along. Otherwise there will be a small lampshade available for students to purchase and work on – please note that this may be a charity shop purchase.
