I just LOVE the lampshade I made on Magda's course!! I couldn't believe how professional it looked - it was so satisfying to complete a whole lampshade in one morning. Magda is a brilliant teacher. This was such a fun course and Magda is so good at attending to all her students' needs. She demonstrated the techniques clearly and guided each of us as much or little as we needed. We were able to choose our own fabric, the size and style of lampshade we wanted to make. I can't recommend Magda's lampshade making class enough. Go for it! You will be so delighted and proud of what you take home.

I am not a natural crafty person so was a little nervous about the course but it was so friendly and relaxed I quickly got into the swing of it and made two gorgeous lampshades that I am very proud of. The choice of colours and materials available was great - I did a roll print in two shades, it looks quite professional and matches the room well. There were of course some tricky parts but Magda was on hand to show tips and tricks which built my confidence so I did the second shade myself . I highly recommend this course if you want a new challenge or have a room you want to personalise.
