Leave it to dry for about an hour, held together with several clothes pegs. Stick the lampshade together with some strong double-sided sticky tape.

Space out the warp and weft threads to create holes. Hold the weaving in place with pins stuck into cardboard. Secure the weaving with PVA glue to hold it in place. Paste PVA glue over the weaving using a fine paintbrush: the glue will become transparent as it dries. Cut-out lamp Cut a rectangle the size of the frame from the self-adhesive backing material. Remove the protective film and stick on the cork paper. Wipe with a cloth to remove any air bubbles. Apply a little PVA glue to the strips of raffia paper.

Remove the plastic film and glue the self-adhesive backing material onto the weaving. Close up the self-adhesive backing material into a cylinder against the lampshade frame, overlapping the two small sides. Hold in place with some double-sided sticky tape.
