Meet the Maker

LightenUp Handmade was established by Vanessa Radford in August 2017 as an antidote to the devastating drought prevailing at the time across much of rural Australia. The aim was to source exquisite Australian designed fabrics to craft into bespoke lampshades to bring beauty into homes across the country. Vanessa works from a studio on her farm near Rowena in north-west NSW. She has been heartened by the wonderful community of lampshade lovers who have supported this burgeoning rural business.
