Mono Handmade


I design and make handmade lampshades using both traditional and contemporary methods.

Each lampshade I make is unique; I do not make them in multiples unless for a private commission or as part of a collection.  

Some of my work is displayed for sale in a few local shops and I also attend local events and fairs.  

Another aspect of my work is re-covering vintage lampshades to give them a new lease of life.  As well as private clients, I work on commissions from interior designers.

I also hold lampshade making classes locally every couple of months and these are always well attended and successful.
