About this program

3D Draping on The Stand Summer School Short Course

This intensive 3D draping course concentrates on key elements from our ‘3D Draping Module 1’ course before moving on to cover advanced creative draping work. You will start by draping fabric onto a dressmakers stand/mannequin and learning the techniques to transfer these designs onto paper to make a pattern. You will then move on to more advanced styling, transforming your concepts into different shapes and styles as well as making and sewing a final finished toile (test garment).

In order to aid your learning, during the course you will use the bestselling book 'Art of Fashion Draping' by Connie Amaden-Crawford, which includes step by step information and clear to understand diagrams for you to follow alongside the tutor’s demonstrations.
