I want to hang a fluorescent strip light above my workbench. How can I do this?

I have a workbench which requires a strong light source suspended above it to illuminate the whole surface area, it's around 3m length and 1m deep. I am failing to find a way to do this simply and effectively. I am currently looking at suspending a fluorescent strip light from the ceiling beams but can only find expensive designer fittings that are not in keeping with the dusty old workshop in which I work (or my budget). I thought of suspending a tube by some rustic looking hemp rope that has been spliced and holds a metal eye to hold the tube. But how to wire it to run the power back to a powerpoint. I like the look of this shop
which has done something similar. Can anyone advise as to how they did this, fittings etc?
