July 27 and 28, 2024 | 9 am – 4 pm

2-DAY COURSE, Saturday and Sunday

Join us for a dynamic weekend journey into the world of fashion draping techniques with our intensive 2-day course. Designed as an introduction to the art of fashion draping, participants will delve into the fundamental skills necessary to transform their creative visions into tangible garments.

Throughout the course, participants will receive expert guidance as they learn to prepare a dress form and master the draping of basic skirt and bodice blocks using muslin fabric. Through hands-on practice, students will explore the nuances of fabric manipulation and form, gaining invaluable insights into the principles of garment construction.

In addition to draping, participants will discover the essential process of transferring their muslin creations onto paper patterns, laying the groundwork for further exploration and experimentation in their design journey. Whether you’re a budding fashion enthusiast or a seasoned designer looking to refine your skills, this course offers an immersive experience that will ignite your passion for fashion and elevate your understanding of the draping process.
