This workshop is more suitable for those with some sewing experience. All workshops are on a 1-2-1 personal tuition basis You will learn how to produce professionally finished curtains, considered to be "high end" luxury. Following traditional techniques, they are predominantly hand sewn with weighted hems and mitred corners. The internal layer adds a sumptuous feel and appearance, whilst acting as an insulator. You will learn how to measure windows, cut out, pattern match and join fabrics. Attach interlining for a bespoke sumptuous finish. Create different handmade headings including double & triple pleat, box, cartridge, and goblet pleats. This is a full day workshop where you will make a sample size interlined curtain.
