Roman Blind Making Course

By Harris & Rose

Learn how to make a hand-sewn, interlined roman blind.

 

The course is separated into 6 manageable chapters so you can easily pick up where you left off, or if you have time, you can do it all in one sitting. 

 

All the videos are in “real time” so we will be sewing along together. 

 

I will be sharing hints and tips with you along the way to help you achieve a really professional finish, and most importantly, a full understanding of how to make a roman blind, to give you the confidence to make another one!

"Easy to follow with it's broken down chapters, ever for a complete beginner.  I have never made anything like this before and it feels like a huge accomplishment during this time - it has been such a brilliant way to switch off.

Sophie guides you through all the steps, also giving great hints and tips along the way.

I am so proud of my finished blind and honestly didn't think I could make such a professional-looking blind"

"This course has been brilliant and very well guided"

Each lesson will begin with a slideshow presentation outlining the contents of the chapter and what equipment you will need.

 

This is followed by a sew-a-long video.  I will be making a blind too and recording it in real-time, including plenty of close-ups and detailed instructions.

At the end of each lesson, you can download a prompt sheet, so when you go on to make more blinds, you have a quick reference guide to remind you what to do next.
