We are taking our popular Braw Wee Bottle Lamp Workshop online! If you fancy joining me for this informal online workshop then we will be running them bi-weekly during lockdown. 

To join the workshop you just need the following:

  • Bottle Lamp Kit or Lampshade Kit (can be purchased from the website). 
  • Half a metre of fabric - preferably something lightweight but tweeds etc. work too. 
  • Bottle of your choice. 
  • Sharp Scissors for cutting fabric
  • Iron and Iron board. 

The workshop will take you through the process of making the Lampshade using Zoom, workshops will be limited to 8 people per workshop. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and for me to provide feedback through the video link. 

What you will get for the workshop! 

  • 2 hour tutorial using Zoom (free video software you can download onto your computer, phone or tablet). You will be sent a link to the scheduled class once you have booked in. 
  • You can purchase a Lampshade Making Kit if you require one. 
  • Access to our own Braw Wee Workshop Facebook group where you can ask questions and chat to fellow class mates! 

Your covering needs to be 970mm wide x 255mm for a 25cm Shade to cover the self-adhesive panel supplied. We recommend that you don't bring along too heavy a weight fabric for your first lampshade, not stretchy cotton is perfect for beginners!  

If you are making the Bottle Lamp then we recommend a 25cm Shade for standard 70cl bottles, if you are using a smaller bottle such as Eden Mill or Drumshambo then a 20cm shade works better. There is no need to drill your bottle, the Bottle Lamp Adaptor is just pushed into the top of your bottle.
