Lampshade Repair, Recovery and Re-purposing!

Tired of gazing at a tired and torn lampshade? Are your existing frames too big/small for your room or do you fancy a more contemporary shape? Got a lamp base that deserves to be brought back to life? Found an amazing 'object' you'd love to re-purpose into a light?

I've had so much fun of late re-storing and reviving both lampshades and lights that I've decided to have a bit of an open drop-in 'surgery'.
 My good friends at the fabulous PatchworkDogandBasket have generously offered  the fabulous courtyard of the historic Needlemakers in Lewes to act as 'waiting room' this Saturday 28th September 10am - 4pm.

I'll have lots of different wire frames in all manner of sizes and shapes so bring your lamp along to try them on. Too heavy or awkward to carry - then just take a photo and I'll take a look. Obviously it won't be possible to do repairs etc while you wait but I'll give you options  and a full prescription with costs.

Typically the jobs I can help you with are:
  • re-covering your existing lampshade frame in your own fabric.
  • select the most effective frame style and shape for your lampbase or space.
  • re-store, re-wire and PAT test your table, floor or ceiling lamp with a fabulous selection of coloured fabric flex.
  • paint or decoupage your lampstand.
  • re-purpose any item  from a kitchen colander to a crystal decanter into a stunning lamp.

Look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

 Local but not around - email me for an appointment at the FollyandGlee studio at UpperLodge near Lewes. Live far away but got a lampshade dilemma? - email me your pics and the patients symptoms and I'll do my best.
