Pattern Draping at Shisomiso

My neighbours, Shisomiso, will be hosting an Introductory Pattern Draping course instructed by Angelika Werth (see dress above). Angelika Werth has worked in Fashion, Fibre and Wearable Art. She started her practice with a three year dress-making apprenticeship; worked for Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, France and received a degree as Master dress-maker-designer, she immigrated to Australia, then to Canada.

One full day will cover mannequin upholstery to change body proportions; followed by three full days of Pattern Draping. Two classes are available; May 28-31st and June 2-5th from 9am-4pm. You will need to provide your own mannequin. For more information about the course, please call Shisomiso at 403-266-4211.

Shisomiso is also hosting an exhibition of Calgary photography Amy Victoria Wakefield, so be sure to visit Shisomiso this First Thursday.
