You create a shared folder like any other.

Then on Ubuntu, you can access it over the network \\hostname\SharedFolderName.

You can also setup shared folders on the VMWare level. Go to VM -> Settings -> options - Shared Folders. This is the easiest way to setup sharing between the host and VM.

Here is the link to the VMWare documentation on how to setup shared folders as well.
