Meet the Maker

Hi! This is me, Julie, the lampshade maker and artist behind gilhoolie bespoke lampshades. You will often find me here in my workshop, making lampshades or drawing (all illustrations on here are by gilhoolie), with Arthur the miniature schnauzer by my side.

My real name is Julie Gardner by the way, but you can call me Julie gilhoolie if you like…

If you need advice on lampshades feel free to give me a ring for a chat (07947 032177), or drop me an email via the contact us page.

“I adore bespoke lampshades. They add interest and colour into my design schemes and real attention to detail. Julie has made a number of lampshades for me and I’ve loved all of them. Her work is beautiful and she is friendly, efficient and professional. I’d highly recommend working with her.”
