How do I know what level I should start at?
Draping Basics Part 1 classes are for students who have no previous experience, or have a little experience but have not draped in a while and wish to refresh their beginner knowledge.
Draping Basics Part 2 classes are for students who have had some experience with draping on the dress form and wish to take their skills to the next level.
Advanced draping classes are for students who have had a reasonable amount of experience and wish to expand their skills whilst working on a custom project.
All of our classes at every level are very social and a lot of students continue to return to keep learning but also to enjoy the social aspect.
Can I switch classes?
Currently all levels of draping courses run once per week. We ask you to make sure the scheduled class time works with your weekly schedule.
