“I really enjoyed this course and thrilled with my lamp! I learned how to make a lamp with pleats at the top and gathers at the bottom. It has given my bedroom a lovely pop of colour and looks so unique. Jacquline is a great teacher, and she brings out the creative side in everyone! She is patient, personable, and fun to work with. I shall definitely sign up for more classes as I want to add some cushions to match. Don’t’ worry if you are a beginner (like I was) this course is for everyone!” Hannah Hennessy

“Just completed this course with Jacqueline in York and absolutely loved it! I will admit to feeling a little bit nervous before hand and not sure I would be able to do it! However Jacqueline put us completely at ease and talked us through the steps clearly and precisely so that I ended up with a beautiful handmade shade that I can’t wait to show off! The 2 days were broken down into easy stages and we all worked together having a giggle as we went along! I never thought I’d actually finish in time but I was wrong! Now can’t wait to do the tailored course – buzzing with ideas! Highly recommended.” Hazel Stevens

“This course was great – I was initially a little anxious taking on such a large project, however I had been on one of the lampshade courses Jacqueline has run in the past and she was so encouraging throughout that I thought I’d give it a try. She showed us step by step and was on hand to answer all our questions. I have left the weekend with a beautiful blind ready and confident to begin designing ones for our spare room!” Karina Holland
