STUDIO LESSONS

For those who wish to acquire the skill of traditional lampshade making on a one-to-one basis or in a private group, Jennifer Fraser offers bespoke lessons in her Hampshire Studio. Feel free to contact Jenny directly to discuss this exciting option.

 

Jennifer Fraser Lampshades has been successfully teaching students the art of traditional lampshade making in her studio in rural Hampshire, UK. In-person lessons are tailored to the student's unique abilities. Courses are available for beginners and professionals alike, with subjects ranging from gathered and tailored lampshades to advanced techniques and pleating. Courses can be taught on a one-to-one or small group basis, so full attention can be given. Enjoy learning this new and exciting skill fireside (there's a lovely woodburner) or out in the garden, weather dependent. Plentiful supplies of cake and coffee keep the creative energies flowing.

ONLINE LESSONS

Across the miles and through the lens, it is amazing what one can achieve through the power of the Internet.

The course is taught on a one-to-one basis, in real time, and involves no pre-recorded instruction. You will receive the full and undivided attention of Jenny Fraser herself, enabling you to focus more on the quality of instruction where you as an individual need it most. Over several sessions, Jenny works with each student at his or her own pace in order to complete their first lampshade. A specialist kit is included and a full list of other essential items is enclosed as well.
