Description

Draping is an intuitive, playful and enjoyable way for anyone to create fashion ideas and garments. By working with fabric and pins on a dummy you inspire yourself and visualise your ideas quickly without necessarily making finished pieces. By twisting, folding, gathering and layering fabric you can get the most amazing results.

During the course students will be introduced to a number of different draping techniques. All of which are very valuable as design tools, whether your aim is to design clothes for yourself or to design a high-end fashion collection.

You can bring your own research or a project you would like to expand with draping or you can just come along and let your intuition guide you.

Working in a sketchbook as well as working with fabric on a dummy will help you to develop and build up your ideas for shapes and details. This will be an excellent addition to your portfolio whether you want to apply for a fashion design course or a job in the industry.
