Draping indulges my senses: the feel of the fabric, watching how fabric falls in stillness and flows with movement. Draping is the art of manipulating fabric to create a three dimensional form. Together with flat pattern making, draping is one of the two main traditional approaches used in fashion design. In order to understand this art form better I studied "Draping Womenswear" at UAL: Central St Martins (Granary Square, London, UK). In my own artistic practice draping is sculpture, its the same vibrant feeling runs through my fingertip I work with clay. Fabric has so many possibilities.

What makes us unique: Aside from being passionate about what we teach, Koala Courses can offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning opportunities, specifically between the sciences and the arts.
