About the Course
One day curtain making
This one day curtain making / sewing course is to teach how to measure and make a bespoke, tailored curtain.
The day will consist of how to measure a window, cut out fabric and lining to make into a sample short curtain which will then enable you to follow to make full length curtains to suit your requirements. Course notes will be included to take away too.
I am based in rural Worcestershire in a hamlet called Hadzor, just off Junction 5 and 6 of the M5. There is a train line into Droitwich Spa which is also about ten minutes away.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Includes lunch and afternoon tea and all materials (linen fabric, lining, weights and header tape). A sewing machine will also be available for you to use.
I have little sewing experience but I managed to learn how to make a professional looking curtain, Denise was an excellent teacher who was clear, concise and very patient. She showed me how to measure a window at different points to making each part of the curtain step by step and on a one to one basis. She welcomed me into her home and made me feel very relaxed and competent. I cant wait to start making curtains for my own home. Totally recommend this course for anyone starting out and wanting to learn how to make a basic curtain or just learn something new

I completed a one day curtain making course and had a really great day. Although I have some previous sewing experience, Denise is extremely knowledgeable and I learnt a huge amount. I came away with a professional looking curtain and full instructions so I can make my own. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in making their own curtains for themselves or others.

I would like to say a big thank you to Denise who gave me a class in making Roman Blinds. It was very informative and I got to take the sample Roman Blind I made home with me. I was also given written instructions with detailed drawings for me to keep and use in the future if needed. I would recommend this one day course to anyone who would like to learn how to make their own Roman Blinds as Denise's friendly yet thorough teaching method was perfect. Thank you

I booked this course for my daughter and myself and it was great. I have sewn before but my daughter is a complete novice but we both finished the day with a completed made to measure lined curtain with a weighted hem and pleated top. Despite us having differing levels of ability the course satisfied both our needs. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to make curtains.
Thank you Denise for this great course and for welcoming us into your lovely home.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon when you show me how to make a roman blind !!

I had a wonderful day that was very informative and easy to understand with a lovely teacher who was very patient with me. I hadn't made curtains before and not touched a sewing machine since I was at school, ( which was a long time ago). I was taught how to measure a window properly before starting to make the curtain, then I was taught step by step how to make a pencil pleat curtain from start to finish and was very pleased with the result. I am now looking forward to making my own curtains for my new home. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to learn how to make curtains either for themselves or if you are thinking of starting your own business. Thank you Denise.
