Discover a world of paper collage and create your own, totally unique paper lampshade. Ros Freeborn is a paper collage artist and she’ll show you how to choose from a wide range of papers to create a very personal design. Papershades workshops are relaxed and fun. You’ll find out how to use tissue paper, wrapping paper, packaging, magazine pages and all kinds of paper to make a single design on card which will then be printed, on the spot, onto five panels of Papershades paper. Ros will show you how to construct the lampshade which flat packs down into an A4 envelope so it’s easy to take home. You could create a lampshade which goes perfectly in your home or make a truly original present for someone special.
