Workshop Details

Making a new pair of lined curtains is one of the most effective ways to freshen up a room. Our Making Simple LIned Curtains workshop ensures that you know all of the tricks of the trade so they are finished to a professional standard.
This class is slightly different from our other workshops as due to the complexity of making the lined curtains, and the amount of space the fabric would take up, the workshop shows you how to make them in “miniature”. You walk through exactly the same techniques as if you were making a full-size set of curtains which allows you to leave the workshop, walk to your local fabric shop and start the process with 100% confidence you know what you are doing.
In this class, Anne Sigsworth, owner of Sophie’s Soft Furnishings, will be your instructor, and you will cover:
  • Measuring for curtains
  • Estimating fabric quantities
  • Where to purchase fabric locally and what to look for
  • Checking, cutting out and pattern matching
  • Hems, seam allowances, and mitered corners
  • Making up
  • Attaching heading tape
  • Gathering up and hanging

Skill Level: Confident Beginner 

Course Availability: Daytime and evening
