I love how paper can be manipulated and see when the shapes casts different shadows. And as an illustrator and artist I love light as well. So what a better combination than starting to make lampshades?! 

My lampshades are made of a good and acid free paper. It's coated with burn block and folded neatly by hand. 

I have hosted lampshade courses and have experience in teaching the technique to people from 15 years and up.
