COURSE PROGRAMME

MAKING OF ROMAN BLINDS

Trainer: Victoria Hammond

This course is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those wishing to enhance their current skills (no hand sewing or sewing machine experience is required).
(Note this is the same programme as Day 4 on COURSE ONE. If you would like to attend
Course One as well you only need to attend Day 1,2,3 & 5 to obtain the Certificate)

 

  • Discussion on function and design of the Roman blind. Accurate measuring for various
    window shapes including bay windows. Fabric estimation and accurate calculations for
    rod pocket spacing for standard fold and waterfall/cascade folds. Demonstration on
    suitable hardware, fixtures and fittings.
  • In our opinion Roman blinds look and function better if there is no visible machine stitching
    to the front. Students will make a fully operational hand-sewn Roman blind, compliant with
    blind regulations.
