Soft Furnishing Courses..

Ginny Peace Interiors now run soft furnishing courses from Ginny's beautiful home in Cranbrook.

Whether you are a beginner who wants to make curtains and blinds for your own home, or you have a little experience but would like to update those skills to begin a career as a professional Curtain Maker, these courses are designed just for you! Classes are limited to 4 people at a time to ensure that everyone gets the right amount of attention in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

Course prices

  • Single day - £130
  • Two days - £260
  • 1 Week - £650

All courses cost £130 per day and include coffee/tea on arrival, lunch and afternoon tea together with a comprehensive set of notes to take away with you. You will take away you a complete sample of your work, which will help you when working on your own at home or to take with you to show potential clients. Take a look here at Previous Students' work and there are more photos and updates on our Facebook page.

In Cranbrook we have a fabulous resource in Bell House Fabrics who as well as having an Interior Design showroom with pattern books from all the major designers, also have a fantastic range of fabrics on the roll that can be purchased at discount prices. Many students go straight there after attending a course to buy fabric for their next project and I am pleased to say that each student attending a course will be given a 10% discount voucher to be used on their first purchase in the shop.

We are always here to help with any queries and are keen to support you after the course finishes. Contact us by phone or email and we will be very happy to answer any questions you may have. We are especially keen to help people starting their own businesses and really enjoy helping you on your way.

So, if you are ready to begin your journey to learn a new skill or to start on the path of a new career just click on any of the course titles for more information and to book your place.

I look forward to meeting you one day! Ginny
