Below is a short film showing me printing some of the wood cut layers that make up my ‘Library in the Park’ lampshade.
I have an example of the finished lampshade available in my Etsy shop . Each one is made to order. All my lampshades are hand printed using a combination of relief print techniques. In the film, I am printing part of the lampshade using a large section of carved wood which I have inked up with water based ink. You can see me running the fabric through my printing press and checking areas of it have printed correctly. As you can see it is a long length of material, a little unwieldy at times! I have to do the lampshade in stages as it is too long to go through the press in one go.
I will be adding other lampshades to my shop soon.
