Roman Blinds Workshop - Sat 26th October 9.30am - 5pm

  • £90.00
Tax included.


On this 1 day workshop you'll make a fully lined sample from a kit that's included in the course fee.

We'll show you how to measure up; how to work out the number of folds and how to translate that into fabric sizing (there's a bit of maths to this one!); and you'll make your own version with beautiful mitred corners and amazing attention to detail.

Our soft furnishings workshops are taught by Kate Hallam who runs an extremely successful soft furnishings business supplying prestigious homes, show homes, colleges and hotels. She also taught for many years at the College of Soft Furnishings teaching those who want to make soft furnishings for a living.
