From Government House to Glenside

The rare craft of making Victorian-style curtains was recently undertaken by Lewis’s of Ngauranga for the historic Halfway House in Glenside. Allan Holdaway, production manager, and Robbie Burns, curtain installer, have each worked for Lewis’s for 20 years and said it was rare to get an opportunity to make Victorianstyle curtains. Their previous similar order was heritage curtains for Government House. The Victorian curtains are in a style of velvet, coloured burgundy. Each of the two large windows is enhanced with festoons trimmed

in ‘Persian” brush fringe, and the tails are lined in taffeta. “They’ve got the wow factor,” said Robbie. “They look fantastic in the rooms. The setting is prefect. Allan Holdaway said that the team from Lewis’s enjoyed making the curtains. He was able to pass his skills onto a new generation, with an intern learning alongside him. Claire Bibby, President of the Glenside Progressive Association Inc. said the association received a grant from The Trusts Community Foundation, which enabled the curtains to be made.
