What to expect...

10am to 4pm - The Skep - Farsley - £49

This day session is split into the morning session making small sample roman blind with wooden dowel rods which gives you the skills and confidence to make your own beautiful blinds to enhance your home. You will learn all the measuring techniques so you can make a roman blind for any size window. You will also add wooden dowel rods, line your roman blind and then learn how to string up your blind so it lifts and folds perfectly up with one smooth pull.

In the afternoon we will make a miniature curtain which is fully lined and has different options for the top - including inserting curtain tape and threading onto a rod.

You will learn all the skills you need to measure your window perfectly, buy the correct fabric amounts, add lining and make your curtains. We will also discuss adding things like interlining to make your curtain extra luxurious

Making your own curtains and blinds is a great way to save money and also get the excact look you want for your home.

All the techniques you learn will be detailed in hand-outs with step-by-step instructions for you to refer back to and make your first roman blind and curtain with confidence. All materials you need will be provided. Please bring your own sewing machine, if you don't have one just contact us and I will reserve one for you to borrow.
