Learn to make a roman blind


Join us for this workshop and walk away with a finished Roman Blind. 

Topics covered will include;

Window styles 

Measuring windows for Roman Blinds

Calculating fabric quantities

Making a sample Roman Blind

Calculating and positioning rod pockets

Hanging a Roman Blind

We will also consider some of the other ways of dressing windows with blinds.

If you wish to make a blind for a particular window within your home you must contact me to discuss.

These workshops do assume a basic knowledge of the sewing machine and an ability to sew in a straight line.

Fabric is not supplied and you will need to bring 1m of blind fabric and 1m of lining fabric. This will give you a finished blind with a maximum drop of 90cm drop. Specific blind making sundries are supplied. 

Rods and bars are cut ahead of the workshop and the workshop is timed to make a smaller blind. 

Undertaking a large size may be possible but you may find that you are to complete it during the session, though you will receive the tuition and a comprehensive handout.

This workshop is being led by Sarah.

People do cancel and we do hold waiting lists. If the date you would like is full please do contact us and we can add you to the list. 

During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.

I am interested in alternative dates
