Lighting is one of the most important elements of a room’s decorating scheme, yet many of us opt for a plain fabric shade for that table lamp or pendant ceiling light. This fabulous new book from lampshade designer Elizabeth Cake shows you how a beautiful and unique lampshade can completely transform a room, with 35 wonderful projects for you to try. The first section explains in detail how to make the four basic lampshade shapes: drum, bell, Tiffany-style, and cone. Then Textiles includes ideas from fairy light shades made from vintage fabrics to a twisted ribbon drum shade and covers a number of simple techniques such as appliqué, cross-stitch, patchwork, or simple stitching. Paper, Card, and Wood includes simple designs using papier maché and origami, and ideas for upcycling. Metal has easy but effective ideas such as hanging old keys from a bell frame, as well as more challenging ones such as puncturing copper sheeting to create an Art Deco effect. Finally, Odds and Ends has quirky ways to use found items, such as old 35-mm slides and even drinking straws. With clear instructions and illustrations, this is a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to add character and style to their lighting scheme.

Shades of Light

Shades of Light

An invaluable practical reference guide, which includes both clear written instructions and helpful illustrations, this book explores the history of lampshade-making, its trends and design inspirations.

Traditional lampshade-making has, for many years, been a sadly overlooked craft, as cheap to buy and readily available modern card shades have become the norm. However, with the resurgence of public interest in make-do and mend and home crafts, as well as the desire to find something unique in a homogenous sea of chain shops, traditional fabric lampshades are becoming more popular. An invaluable practical reference guide, which includes both clear written instruction and helpful illustrations, this book explores the history of lampshade-making, its trends and design inspirations. It looks at the technical elements required, shows the techniques needed to make the shade properly in the traditional way and then explores more advanced techniques such as chiffon swathing and knife pleating. Once the reader has understood the potential of the hand-crafted shade, he or she can begin the design process, even using creative skills from other disciplines. The great thing about lampshade-making is that it doesn’t require a large financial outlay and can involve a lot of reusing and recycling. Only a small work space is needed and there is little specialist equipment to buy. So if you want to create something beautiful, unique and practical but don’t have unlimited resources or a wealth of technical skills, this entertaining and satisfying home craft could be just what you’re looking for.
