Soft Furnishing - Roman Blind & Curtain Workshop

Join us at The Makers' Space, Longbarn Village, Alcester Heath, Alcester, B49 5JJ for the Soft Furnishing - Roman Blind & Curtain Workshop. 

Skill Level - Advanced Beginner, you will need to know how to use a sewing machine and an overlocker

 Hosted by Annette Davis owner of Designworks Interiors who specialises in making high end curtains & blinds for private clients & interior designers. Now as Annette aims for retirement, it is her passion to pass her skills on to others. 

 During this workshop you learn the methods and create mini mock up samples of a Roman Blind (40cm x 1m drop) and a Curtain with a Pinch Pleat/French Pleat header (75cm drop).  This will enable you to learn the skills required to create your own full sized ones at home.

For the Roman Blind will learn how to work out fabric quantities, how to cut fabric allowing for hems etc, make up lining, learn to use a professional method of making channels for supporting rods and how to work out spacings. Finally focussing on finishing with Velcro to attach to the track.  For the Curtains you will also learn how to line the fabric and create the beautiful Pinch/French Pleating across the top
