Complete Guide to Roman blinds

2 DAY COURSE

Beginners 2 day roman blind course £347

These are SO simple! I can’t wait to show you and have broken it down into bitesize easy steps.

Look what you will have the confidence to make after completing our beginners roman blind workshop! This is the absolute best part about making your own soft furnishings, you can do exactly what you want. Let your creativity run wild!

Why pay for a 2 day Roman blind course instead of a day course?

The short answer is, a day course will provide you with the basics but not all the skills ideally required. Rather than leaving a day course feeling excited to put your skills into practise but frustrated as there are still skills you are yet to acquire, on our 2 day course you will leave with ALL the skillsets you need to make beautiful professional quality Roman blinds.

You will make 2 SAMPLE SIZED Roman blinds over this course.

Roman blind 1 = Make a professional lined roman blind with no visible stitching and integrated rod pockets. You will finish your blind with hand sewn rings.

Roman blind 2 = Make an interlined roman blind with no visible stitching, integrated rod pockets, faux hem and a pom pom trim. Your blind will be finished off with punched eyelets. You will also learn how to join fabrics.

 

What’s included in your course:

How to make a lined roman blind with invisible stitching but also how to make an interlined roman blind for the deluxe professional finish. (NO visible stitches on the front of your roman blind. So much better than a stitched through blind!!! SOOOO much better! We make to set sizes to ensure a relaxed, comfortable pace.

All habedashery is included, along with a choice of top quality, designer materials. At the end of your course you will feel so proud to take home your roman blind. You will be excited to show friends and family what you can now create.

*Measure a window correctly

* Joining Fabrics (Essential for a roman blind bigger than 1 standard width or to add a border)

* Hand sew to create the perfect invisible stitching

* Stab stitch (Joining all of your layers of fabric together with 1 hand stitch)

* Interline with all the required hand stitches.

* Create faux hems to add a trim

*Create lining with integrated rod pockets

*Learn how to install your blind onto a fully compliant, 1.1 breakaway chain

*Cover compliance regulations to ensure safe installations

As I don’t see the point in providing a course where you leave with all the gear and only some idea, the 2 day courses are offered at a discounted rate to make them more affordable than having to attend a 1 day course and then book onto another 1 day course to learn the rest. Who wouldn’t want to learn the correct way, in one go and for less money…..
