Draping -Creating garments on the stand
Ready, steady..... drape!
This workshop is for workshoppers who would like to learn the art of draping.
In this full day class you will have a demonstration on how to drape calico onto the mannequin, to create instant 3D garments. we will focus on Jackets, tops (bodices) or dress shapes.
This workshop is experimental, and most draped garments come from the experimental process, where your garments are created organically.
You will have the full day to try different draping techniques, taking photographs of your work. In the last afternoon of the workshop you will decide on your draped garment, learning how to mark your fabrics ready to transfer onto a paper pattern.
1.5 metres of calico will be provided free of charge.
If you would like to make a garment for your own body measurements,you will need to bring along your own adjustable mannequin. Or alternatively you can use a random avaiable size mannequin from our studio. But this may not be the size you require.
This process can only be done directly onto a mannequin.
Time: 10am - 5pm

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION BEFORE I ATTEND?
