9.30am – 1pm

Learn how to make your own raffia lamp base & shade in this wonderfully creative workshop.  “Let there be light” and woven raffia is the perfect fibre to illuminate your home.  It’s natural colour and openness of weave, allows for a soft, diffused light.  Join Charlotte Holyoak, international Milliner/Teacher/Designer for a ‘light’ and happy day of learning a 4 strand plait, followed by a special raffia sewing technique also incorporating strips of white fabric threaded through your design.  Lots of time for chatter, fun and morning tea while learning a new skill. On completing your beautiful lamp shade, we will attach it to a beautiful Shabby Chic wooden lamp stand, all inclusive in the price.  You have the choice of a natural raffia with a white fabric weave or a beautiful blue coloured raffia with hand dyed indigo woven strips.  All that’s left to decide is where in your house will you showcase your beautiful hand-made creation.
