  • Curtain making (History Weaving and Fabric)

    I thought it might be fun to look at the origins of curtain making and weaving and take a look at the types of fabric we may be asked to use and their origins.

    This first chapter extracted from my lesson notes is in PDF format. It is a compilation of images and descriptions of events in history, the weaving trade and a variety of world fabrics brought together to provide my students with a basic background understanding of curtain making and fabrics through the ages.

    if you click on the picture below the PDF file will automatically open in a separate window or tab on your computer. This is a large file so give it a minute or so to download. If you have problems then there are other methods described below the picture.

    I make no claim to copyright for this chapter of my course notes but instead offer my thanks to Wikipedia and all the other internet contributors who have enabled me to compile this offering.

    I wasn't able to access it Clive, I got a blank page. I wonder why. My pooter is fairly up-to-date but don't understand technical jargon. I will pm you with my e mail as I would love to read up on it. Thanks for the opportunity.

      The document is over 1mb Carol and may take a little time to download. I have tried the link on three computers and it seems to work on them. I have emailed you the document so you should have it soon but here is the un-embedded link for you to try if the picture doesn't want to play.

          Worked fine for me. Glad it's sorted, looks to be a useful resource...for those that do curtains.

              Curtains certainly make a room feel cosy but I didn't realise that Australians didn't have them at all. I suppose you all have blinds.
