Learn how to make your own curtains at this workshop. Suitable for those with an intermediate skill level.
It's extremely useful to be able to make your own curtains. Ready-made 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.
