We know that not everyone can come to our classes in Wiltshire, England, so we have bought our expert tuition to you.


Following on from our hugely successful gathered lampshade Lesson in a Box, this pleated lampshade Lesson in a Box is the second online tutorial from the Lampshade School.


The Lesson in a Box will arrive on your doorstep with all the kit you need to make a beautiful pleated lampshade. Full, comprehensive, printed instructions with hundreds of colour photos are included plus access to online video tutorials explaining every single detail of the making process. So, you can learn at your own pace in your own space and continue using your new skills to fill the world with light.
