Have you tried to make your own curtains, but just can't get it right? Would you love to have a go at your own window dressings but don't know where to start? Whatever your sewing skills, even if non existent, our simple, fun and friendly courses will get you started. The curtain and blind courses run two Wednesdays per month beginning at 9.30 am and finishing at 5pm, dates are shown below. The cost is £115 per day and classes are limited to 6 people per day to ensure each person receives individual attention.
You will make a mini curtain or blind and we will teach you how to measure for curtains, cut your fabric, line and then finish your curtains professionally. We will show you how to measure for a Roman blind, work out the folds and cord the blind.
You will be able to take your mini curtain or blind with you as a sample and a set of notes to help you so you can go home and start sewing with confidence.
Choose from making a pencil pleat curtain, an interlined hand pleated curtain or a Roman blind. If you are unsure what any of this means please call us on (01580) 241614 and we will advise the best course for you.
The cushion making course runs on a Tuesday between 9.30 and 2.30 and you will make a plain zipped cushion and a piped one and be able to take your creation home along with a set of notes.
We also offer advice and support after you have attended a course and attempt your own projects.
All materials and equipment are provided for the day – just bring yourself.
The price includes tea/coffee and a light sandwich lunch.
If you need somewhere to stay we can recommend places for you.
