How to make your own curtains

Friday 24 May
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

It’s extremely useful to be able to make your own curtains. Ready-mades only come in a limited number of sizes, so they don’t always fit very well. Then you may want a specific colour or pattern to match your other decor.

Custom-made curtains are extremely expensive but they are actually quite easy to make yourself. You’ll be able to coordinate your soft furnishings in future at a fraction of the price of having them made. Once you can make your own, you’ll be able to alter ready-made curtains too. Curtain-making is also immensely satisfying but you do need to take accurate measurements and understand how to match patterns. This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to make your own curtains.

Who is this aimed at?
Intermediate. You should have confident sewing skills.

What will I learn?
How to measure your windows
Calculating fabric quantities
Understand pattern repeats
Cutting lengths and matching patterns
Hemming techniques
Header treatments
Attaching lining

Due to time and space restrictions, you not be able to make an entire pair of curtains. But you will make samples of the techniques to take home and will have extensive notes from the class. So you will be equipped with the knowledge to confidently make your own at home.

Must be pre-booked at https://www.artisanstitch.co.uk/event/curtain-making-2/
