One day introduction course to window treatment design

If you are thinking about changing the curtains, blinds or shutters in a room but are unsure about what is available and what would suit the situation, window design and room purpose, than this one day course might be the right thing for you to get you started.

I have taught the extended version of this course to Interior Design students and they have absolutely loved it. This slimmed down version of the course will not baffle you with Interior Design  jargon but explain the various types of curtain and blind styles, why we would suggest one style before the other, how to measure windows correctly, which fabrics are suitable, how to instruct a curtain maker and how to sketch a design.

The course is taught over 5 hours in two 2.5 hour blocks with a 30 minute lunch break. It includes a light cold lunch and coffee, tea, and biscuits. You will receive comprehensive hand-outs of everything we discussed and hopefully meet some likeminded people and make new friends.

The course is limited to only 4 per day.
