Classes & Events

Every lampshade is *handcrafted, and begins with a seed packet, as we organically grow, gather, press, and dry all of our own plant materials. We have hundreds of plant varieties to work with, and chances are good that we have some of your favorites!

Each shade is a unique work of art, individually designed, and constructed with the finest materials and hardware. Custom work is a specialty, and shades can be designed to complement your fabric swatches or wallpaper samples. We can even personalize children's shades and nightlights.

Botanical Lampshades studio is in North Sandwich, New Hampshire. Please call 603-284-7468, if you would like to visit. Bring your lamp if you would like to order a shade. Children are welcome. They can make their own flower press to bring home!
