ABOUT NICOLE MCCARTHY

I developed a passion for the crafting movement after leaving my career in the corporate world and was at home with young children. I started by teaching myself how to make lampshades, which lead me to running workshops from home. It was around this time that I was travelling to Japan and I was introduced to the Japanese craft and artisan culture. I started using Japanese Tenugui fabric for lampshade making because it was a novel way to work with beautiful patterns and designs without having any sewing skills! The rectangular cottons that come in a mesmerising array of designs are the perfects weight, texture and size to make small lampshades.

Hands On Workshop was started as a way of making the quality kits and materials I found there accessible to the wider craft community outside of Japan. We have textiles, leathercraft, linen aprons, tools and were adding new products to the online shop every month.

01 November 2017 • Lampshade Making with Japanese Tenugui

i liked the course as i have learnt how to make lampshades, the details lacking were in how to continue making them at home without having to buy a kit each time and doubling up on tools. a list of preferred providers would have been much appreciated, as they have been given to us in other workshop classes. otherwisse a great night!
