Description

This course is aimed at those with knowledge of sewing and constructing garments, as well as those with a professional fashion background. Join us in exploring new paths in design development. We’ll be breaking conventional approaches and learning new ways of handling fabrics.

 

A fresh and liberating way of making clothes brings with it a new set of rules having more in common with sculpting than traditional dress making. Working directly onto a dress form, Christine Mayer teaches how to drape and stitch artfully; creating original garments with a second-skin fit. Her unique draping style is an art form she’s developed from her own studies in classical Japanese draping. This inventive method opens new perspectives and shapes which wouldn’t be conceivable by conventional cutting development.

 

Christine carefully identifies and guides each participant’s individual potential, to discover a new expression in their own creative work. Under her guidance, it won’t take long to understand the principles of working three-dimensionally, and enjoy the process of allowing your garments to evolve.

 

Dates: March 26-28, 2018
Time: 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
