Arched & Apex Drapery Masterclass

January 23-24, 2020

9:00 am - 5:00 pm with 1 hour lunch on your own.

Instructor: Susan Woodcock

In this 2-day class, students will learn how to create pleated draperies for arched and apex shaped windows. A shaped window template will be used to fashion two different styles; traditional pleats and spaces and modern pleats with slouched spaces.


Creating draperies for shaped top windows can be challenging and requires a different approach, but Susan Woodcock will guide you through the design and pattern making process, making it easy-to-understand. Once you master the techniques, you can use what you learn to create shaped top draperies, valances and shades with confidence.

Topics covered include:
-measuring and making a template
-figuring yardage
-drafting a paper pattern
-linings and interlinings
-cutting and joining fabrics
-hemming and finishing techniques
-hardware and installation ideas
-professional tips

Students must have completed "Custom Draperies: Level II" or have some practical drapery making experience and sewing knowledge. Contact Susan Woodcock with any questions
