  • Making a ceiling light shade

    As I haven't found the light shade I want, I've decided to make my own. Never having made one before, can anyone point me in the direction of a website with simple instructions please.

    I've found a supplier of shade carriers and the spider bit, not yet up on the technological terms, and I'm not sure what to do with all the bits!

    My initial idea was to use thin bamboo to create a square frame, lashed together with leather thonging. Then sew the fabric top and bottom on the bamboo. I guess it would be a bit like a box kite, if that makes sense.

    Any advice would be warmly welcomed
