"The Light up your Lace class was one of the highlights of Wool Week for me. You are  a superb teacher and managed a wonderful blend of skill, knowledge, organisation and calm.  Thank you Helen for a fantastic class and for sharing your skills." 

Join me and learn the secrets of Wire Knitting while completing your very own Wire Lampshade. 

Inspired by the fine lace knitting developed by Shetland knitters in the past, including my own ancestors, these lampshades make an interesting home accessory and a great gift to yourself.

You will receive video instruction, enough wire to complete your lamp, a pdf pattern and a Zoom class led by me. 

No previous experience of knitting with wire is required. No previous lace knitting experience is required. As long as you can cast on and knit, you can achieve this as I've designed the patterns from very easy to more challenging.

UK customers can order their own Lucy Lamp Duo lamps from John Lewis. If you are outside the UK you can supply your own Tvarfot or Tiarp lamp from Ikea. The patterns are written to fit either of these three small table lamps. 

As well as enjoying sharing in your wire knitting journey, I like to ensure you finish your projects so this class is run through Zoom over 6 hours with breaks. A follow up class will be arranged if necessary to ensure you complete your project.

You will be sent suitable wire but you will provide your own lamp. 

Any questions please email me.
