The first wedding anniversary is celebrated with gifts of paper. So what could be more perfect than a paper lampshade specially designed for the occasion?
Papershades offers a range of flat-pack lampshades, which you assemble at home, for a very affordable £25 including postage and packing. A variety of ranges are available: Floral, Nostalgia, Places…. with more being added all the time. This original form of paper lampshade was invented by artist Rosalind Freeborn who wanted to find a different way to use her own paper collage art.
Rosalind also runs workshops at her studio where guests can use a wide range of paper collage to create their own designs which are then printed on the spot. Workshops are relaxed and fun with a group of people gathered round Ros's studio table with the chance to sift through tissue paper, wrapping paper, wallpaper, magazines, packaging and any other kind of paper. Once a single design has been created on a piece of A4 card it is printed onto five panels of special Papershades paper and assembled. Everyone goes home with a fabulous, and totally unique, paper lampshade.
Papershades workshops are perfect for couples wanting to celebrate a year of marriage or for girls organising a different kind of hen party. Ros is very happy to run parties in her studio or to come to your venue. To find out more, visit www.papershades.co.uk
