Have you wished you could make your own blind to match your colour scheme? Unsure where to start? Well worry no more as we have a great class for you.

In this class the topics we aim to cover are: *How to measure and calculate fabric amounts to fit your windows *Understanding the importance of fabric grain *Marking and cutting of your fabric *Learning about pattern repeat and how to match patterned fabric. *Discuss interlinings *How to calculate cascading folds *Gain information on different types and weights of fabrics for blinds *Work out calculations for creating castings for dowelling rods *Understand how to hang your blind Materials needed: A blind pack is included in the price of your lesson.
