The Competency-Based Certificate program in Draping is intended primarily for those students who need to enhance their draping skills but do not wish to enroll in a degree program. The program consists of four sequential courses which are offered over a four-semester time span. Projects that incorporate both draping and patternmaking techniques are explored using a variety of approaches and methods in developing and analyzing patterns.
Entrance to the program requires a knowledge of clothing construction and/or tailoring skills. Students will be able to:
- recognize, evaluate, and execute diverse draping styles
- create original designs and patterns
- improve fitting techniques
- interpret and execute specific silhouettes, styles and market trends.
