Professional fabrication methods are further explored in this fast paced course. Each student completes an embellishment sample incorporating techniques for straight and mitered banding, welt cord, and twisted braid cord. They also complete a straight box-pleat valance, a basic swag and cascade top treatment, a grommet top panel, and a stationary trapezoid shade. This class will also focus on the specific challenges of working with sheer fabric. Students learn professional techniques for cutting and ‘taming’ sheers while creating a sheer pinch pleat panel sample. Students use specialty products like sheer buckram and fusible bonding tape, and explore a variety of methods for French seams.
