Lampshade maker and self-proclaimed junk shop junkie, Natalia Price-Cabrera (aka Mols & Tati-Lois) discovered a huge gap in the market when she set about making lampshades. There were so few inspiring books out there that she decided to put together something creatively exciting and visually beautiful herself – essentially the book she had been looking for but couldn’t find. This book is bursting with inspirational images, tips and ideas. Sixteen contemporary projects are covered in useful step-by-step tutorials. There is a detailed chapter dedicated solely to the different techniques you will need to know in order to make a fabric lampshade for yourself – techniques such as creating a soft-sided lampshade using just hand stitching, or hand stitching and glue, machine stitching, using laminated PVC to create a drum lampshade, pleating, and creating balloon linings. There is also a section about crafting a workspace, the tools you will need, safety, fixtures and fittings, and an in-depth section about fabrics and trims.
