Lampshade Making: Sculpted Maps

Lampshade Making: Sculpted Maps


With the creative guidance of artist Timid Elk, bring memories from the great outdoors into your home with stunning geometric lampshade handmade from maps of special places.

Learn how to use Ordnance Survey maps to create your own sculptural shade and bring to life any table lamp or small ceiling light with a uniquely personal twist.

Makers can use the selections of maps provided or their own maps if preferred (which must be submitted to Nostell no later than 10 November/26 January for them to be prepared pre-workshop). Please note, maps will be cut up as part of the construction process.

£85 including all materials and light refreshment crafted by Nostell's baker.
