About the event

Spend two days of meditative stitching with Aimée Alice Payton as you create a beautiful gathered lampshade. Aimée shares her knowledge and helps you achieve a professional finish to your lampshade. 

On the day

  • You will choose and prepare a suitable frame for this technique
  • Create gathers with traditional techniques
  • Make a balloon lining
  • Finish your shade with a handstitched bias edge
  • All materials are included.
  • Handstitched shades can be fiddly and hard on your hands. Please consider this if you have any issues with your hands and wrists.

Please feel free to discuss with me any specific ideas in advance and I can let you know if they are feasible. I am happy to advise on fabrics as well.
