“Traditional curtain making is one of those crafts that is handed down from mother to daughter. Being taught by Victoria feels like being handed down generations of family secrets, techniques and experience – what an absolute privilege”. Alison, Essex
Victoria, I can’t thank you enough for these past few weeks, your teaching has been invaluable! You’ve inspired me greatly and I now feel confident with my skills”. Molly, Wiltshire – awarded a ‘Diploma in Professional Curtain Making & Soft Furnishings’
Victoria’s courses were amazing and extremely inspiring. I felt I was being taught by the best and you can really sense how much Victoria cares about all her students and their work. I met some really lovely people and the student forum is a great tool when setting up a business and needing some advice. The courses are intense but I was amazed at how much I learnt. Victoria is a great teacher and is extremely experienced – no question is too silly to ask. I cannot thank Victoria enough she has truly inspired me to take that leap out of the corporate world to set up my own curtain making business. Jenna, Surrey – awarded a ‘Diploma in Professional Curtain Making & Soft Furnishings’
“Where do I begin but with a massive big thank you to a very impressive teacher whom has given me the tools to start a new and exciting business in hand sewn curtains and soft furnishings. All the courses are excellent and the surroundings are perfect providing a home from home friendly, but professional feel. If you are thinking of studying a curtain, Roman blind or perhaps a cushion making course, I couldn’t recommend Victoria Hammond enough”.
