Learn how to make a professional looking drum lampshade in a morning. See the difference of fabric prints on varying frame sizes. Make a shade for a lamp base or ceiling light or choose a design that can be either. Learn how to finish off to a professional level and customise with trimmings, embroidery or embellishments.
You will learn how attach the fabric to the PVC lining material, which makes the lampshade fireproof and conforms to the Lighting Association’s glow wire safety test.
