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.
