Laura's background: 

A craft pursuit born from not being able to find a lampshade I wanted for my own home, little did I know at the time it would turn out to be the creative outlet I desired in my life.  From the very beginning my focus on lampshade making has been to look back on and research the traditions of the craft and to bring that into my own work. Being self-taught in the craft but having a back ground in sewing, studying Fashion and Design in my younger years, lampshade making encompassed a lot of the skills and textile knowledge I had learnt but never used in my working career.  Quality of workmanship and attention to detail are evident in all my work, it is in innate part of my craft, that I want every piece to evoke an appreciation of my time and skill of the craft. Many projects I produce have hours of detail, others might be quite simple in construction, but producing a lampshade high in quality is paramount to my business.  I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your lampshade projects! :)
