Continue learning how to make your own handmade Victorian Lampshade! This video teaches the following techniques:

  • Fan Pleating
  • Inverted Rosettes
  • Quick Corner Pleats
  • Pulled off Rosettes
  • Sugaring

Sugaring is a technique that involves tiny glass beads (not sugar!). The beads are spread onto a panel on the lampshade, giving the shade a unique texture and luminescence. The result is something that is both elegant and exciting!

The nearly-lost art of Lampshade sugaring began in the 20th century, and became popular when Silk & Lace Lampshades began to appear in homes in the early 1900s.

There are 20 lampshade examples in this video to give you plenty of inspiration. It was voted best How-To Video by the California Videographers Association in 1997.
