    Pass the threaded fitting through the center hole of the board and secure it with two tight nuts on either side of the board.


    Unscrew the base of the socket(1) and screw it onto the threaded fitting(2).


    Pass the electrical cable through the central hole and connect it to the electrical connector (3).


    Assemble the two parts of the socket by screwing the top par (4).

  • Step 5

    Cut off a 1.4cm strip from the A3 tracing paper to shorten it in length.


    - Fold a 1cm flap then the rest of the sheet in four equal parts.

    - Fold in three lengthwise.

    - Fold the diagonals according to the diagram below.


    Glue the flap to the other end of the paper to form a 'chimney'. Then, gently, fold/push the different elements to give the lampshade its shape.
