Description

In this class you will learn to make your own fabric covered lampshade to add a personal touch to your home or office décor.  And then enjoy a homemade French apple tart for afternoon tea while we show each other our creations!

Virginia’s ethos when it comes to making is that there is nothing more satisfying than knowing you have taken a few simple materials and made something yourself.
