Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Ashdown Forest, The Oast Studio is a space where we run a variety of creative workshops, from sewing tuition and wool felting, to basket weaving and paper flower making. This workshop is perfect for those who would like to make their own simple and professional looking curtains. You will learn: - How to choose and measure your fabric - How to add a lining - How to add curtain header tape - How to hem your curtain and lining neatly What you'll make:​ A small scale sample curtain with lining and pencil pleats Please bring half a metre of curtain fabric as we will be making a small scale curtain to learn the process. Please avoid velvet or any fabric with a nap. Alison from The Oast Bakery will treat us to some of her delicious baking and plenty of teas and coffees to keep us going. You are welcome to bring your own sewing machine, or use one of ours. Our Studio is in a beautiful converted Oast with exposed beams and gentle views across the farmland.  Filled with mouth-watering aromas from The Oast Bakery, where Alison prepares our delicious refreshments, this is the perfect place to escape the pressures of daily life and enjoy some creative time for yourself.  Our aim is to offer the chance to unwind, learn a new skill and meet like minded people whilst enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake.
