We’re always looking for new ways to support you in your lampshade making endeavors, whether you’re a kit maker, professional lampshade maker or even a wholesaler of our Needcraft lampshade kit range.

Today it’s the turn of the lampshade workshop tutor. Passionate about lampshades, this group of lovely customers have taken it upon themselves to spread the ‘lampshade making word’ and teach others craft curious folk how to make lampshade for themselves, using our workshop packs.

And for that we're offering FREE promotion of your workshop right here on our blog Events Calendar!

Our Events calendar showcases a wide variety of lampshade making workshops all in one place and we have hundreds of followers checking our calendar so it's a great way to promote your workshop for free.

All you need to do is register your event here. It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and you can use the handy video below to guide you.

How do I set up a lampshade making workshop?

Anyone who has mastered the art of making lampshade using our brilliant kits can effectively run a lampshade making workshop.

Read our previous blog post here which included the essentials of setting up a workshop and even includes ideas for creating your own mini brand and how to ticket your event.

And if you're thinking about or are already retailing our lampshade making kits, then why not hold a workshop to promote your craft shop or haberdashery store as an in-store event?

Workshop Events are a great way of helping to attract new audiences, build long-lasting brand loyalty amongst customers and encourage shoppers back into stores time and again.

And what about kits?

We've designed our Needcraft Workshop Packs for you to run a group activity at low-cost and it contains everything you need to get started.

Handily packed in one box for easy storage, as well as the components to make 30 or 50 lampshades, every pack contains clear and comprehensive instruction sheets (A4) for your students and for additional support we have PowerPoint/PDF presentations and videos that you can find here.

Available in a range of sizes (20cm, 30cm and 40cm shades) prices start from as little as £86.84 (£2.89 unit) +VAT making it an excellent way to grow your lampshade making business or running an in-store event.
