Woven Lampshade Workshop

Meet + Make with Jane Withers
15 March 2024

Make some time for yourself and create a wool corded lampshade with textile artist Jane Withers.

Spend a relaxing morning crafting your own lampshade with an array of colourful wool cord. Jane will be on hand to guide you through the whole process, from selecting your wool to assembling your lampshade.

All materials and equipment will be provided, including British wool cord made by Jane and her partner Michael.

Please note, you will need some basic hand-sewing skills to participate in this workshop.

This workshop is part of Meet + Make, a series of public engagement events running alongside our contemporary exhibition Work Life: Life’s Work.
