Glow&Co Lampshades NZ

Make Your Very Own Lampshade with Nancy!

Learn to make your very own 30cm diameter lampshade at one of our Lampshade Making Workshops!

We make a drum shade because it is a classic, yet modern shape that works with every style of house and with any style of fabric. You can make your shade for a lamp or to attach to a ceiling fitting.

Because the drum shade is so versatile, anyone can find the perfect spot in their home for a custom drum shade!
