In any profession, one may pursue a career without obtaining the proper training; however, if one desires to be most efficient at what he or she does, then they should have certain qualifications. The same is true in making curtains.
The first qualification one should have when making curtains is experience. When making curtains, the more curtains you make, the more efficient you become at making them. One option having experience in curtain making will enable an individual is the opportunity to qualify to become enrolled at an interior design school. When doing this one will learn how to professionally make and design curtains from qualified teachers. Even if one does not have the time and/or money to enroll in an interior design school full-time, then he or she may enroll part-time and take a few applicable classes that describe the process of curtain making. In order to enroll in such a school in the United Kingdom one should undergo a couple of pre-enrollment steps. Firstly, one should have a thorough grasp of the english language and be able to International Language English Testing System exam. Secondly, an individual who wants to enroll in a school of interior design should become a member of the British Interior Design Association (BIDA).
An example of a particular school in the United Kingdom one may attend to obtain the necessary qualifications for making curtains is the Limperts Academy of Design. This institute offers curtain making courses that have been structured to meet national and inter national educational standards of the design industry. The Limperts Academy allows individuals to build confidence in their curtain making skills while obtaining the experience of making curtains through the process of trial-and-error. While enrolled in the school one will obtain up-to-date qualifications needed for a curtain designer and be able to build a personal portfolio. Having this portfolio will enable a curtain maker to gain credibility and display their talent and professionalism to prospective clients.
Aside from these qualifications, one should also have a rudimentary knowledge of several things before attempting to make curtains. This rudimentary knowledge includes knowing how to use a measuring device, an ability to sew and follow instructions, and a familiarity with types of fabric. Finally, perhaps the most important qualification one should possess when making curtains is a desire and/or love of doing so. If one entails this quality when constructing curtains, then he or she will do a much better job and not hate what their doing. Essentially a happy curtain maker, results in a happy curtain.
