Student Workshop Packs – Lampshade making kits to make bespoke, handmade lampshades.

‘The perfect way to provide a new and exciting creative challenge for your students’

Everything in the box to run your own Lampshade Making Workshop !

Designed for the classroom, workshop or any group making activity these packs contain everything students need to make professional, handmade lampshades using their design of choice. From concept to completion students will enjoy the process of designing their own lampshades, reflecting their ideas and inspirations in a project that will have resonance far beyond the end of the lesson.

Every pack contains clear and comprehensive instruction sheets (A4) with colour photographs. We also have PowerPoint / PDF presentations, and videos accessible for additional support.

How do they work?

The student provides their covering of choice, any fabric or wallpaper can be used.

This covering is laminated to the self-adhesive lampshade panel from the pack they then simply follow the step by step instructions to make the lampshade. It’s a straightforward and highly rewarding process.


There is the option for you to provide coverings for the students to select from, or we can supply an additional fabric pack which contains 50 pieces of quality material in various designs and colours.

Organisations with design and print capabilities often choose to offer students a complete project as they can design the textile they will use.   Digital, block or screen printing or embroidery methods can be used.

Purpose of the lampshade packs

These packs enable tutors to teach a new skill and run creative workshops, projects and events in educational and social establishments.

Lampshade making will engage, excite, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. Students will acquire a broad range of subject knowledge in making the product and draw on many disciplines such as maths, science, computing, art and practical skills.

How long does it take to make the lampshade?

Most tutors allow 1hour 30 mins to make the lampshade in a workshop environment. That is the amount of time you should allow for integration into a more comprehensive project.

Students could also extend the project by adding embroidery or other embellishments.

About the lampshades

What style of lampshade will the packs make?

The packs will make modern drum type lampshades that can be used as Pendants (Ceiling lights) or they can be used with Table Lamps. We have three sizes available Small 20cm, Medium 30cm and Large 40cm. The medium size 30cm is the most common and popular sized lampshade and is highly recommended.

What type of lamp holder will this lampshade fit?

The lampshade frame included in your kit will fit the standard bayonet cap (BC) lamp holder.

This is the most common type of lamp fitting in the UK today. It can also be used with Edison Screw (E27) lamp holders, most common in Europe, simply remove the converter plug in the centre of the fitting.

Lampshades and safety

The lampshade material (PVC PANEL) has been tested for fire resistance in the Lighting Association Laboratories to comply with BS EN 60598-1-2008, the British Standard for Luminaries. The student’s fabrics, textiles or paper that is laminated to our PVC will become fire resistant, perfectly safe.
