This course is part of Dillington Discoveries Summer/Autumn week.

Suitable for beginners Zara will support you at every stage to achieve your hand printed fabric that will be made into a lampshade to hang proudly in your home on a ceiling light or lamp.

You will be shown how to create a one colour paper cut stencil that can be repeated across the length of your fabric for the lampshade. You will learn to screen print this onto the fabric.

Zara will then demonstrate how to turn this fabric length into a 30cm drum lampshade.
