Ever fancied making your own blinds to suit your home furnishings and fabric? In this one day masterclass we give you the skills and knowledge to create your own roman blinds at home.
Tutor: Wendy Turner
During this class we produce a half metre blind sample for you to take home and use as a guide to make full size blinds in fabrics of your choice. As well as this we will cover practical information on measuring and sewing and discuss how to hang the blinds using the traditional batten method with velcro faced tracking.
The topics we aim to cover are:
How to measure and calculate fabric amounts to fit your windows

Marking and cutting of your fabric
Learn about pattern repeat and how to match patterned fabric.
How to calculate cascading folds
Gain information on different types and weights of fabrics for blinds
