Home Interiors - Thermally Lined Curtains

Learn how to make your own thermally lined curtains and keep your home nice and cosy in the 3 hour workshop!

During the workshop you will make a sample curtain (measuring 50cm x 60cm) which you can then use as a reference point to make your own curatins at home.

The curtain will be interlined and have thermal lining too. If you would prefer to miss out the thermal aspects of the sample curtain when making them at home you'll still learn everything you need to know.
