Raffia Lampshade


with Claire Richards

This is a one-day class, running from 10am-4pm

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

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 has just enjoyed a lovely raffia face-lift. All raffia is supplied,  and 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.

ABOUT THE TUTOR

Claire has been working with raffia since 1993 when she learnt to make hats from an Australian in the UK. After a break from raffia for other work and to raise her son, Claire returned to raffia in 2019. She has now extended the raffia range to include hats, bags, interior decorations and lampshades.
