On this course you will learn or develop your knowledge of a variety of soft furnishing techniques and projects that may include how to make cushions, blinds, curtains, tiebacks and pelmets, as appropriate to your starting point and personal choice. You will be shown the correct way to measure and estimate fabrics, layout, cutting, making-up, pattern matching and hand finishing techniques. Complete beginners will begin with making a cushion of your choice, and over 10 weeks you should expect to complete a piped cushion with a zip or button fastening, and a small lined roman blind. Learners with more experience will work on more complex projects of their choice.
