WHAT IS A DRAPING COURSE?


Although those of you who follow this blog already know what Moulage is and like the advanced content I bring here, know that the technique is still little known and widespread.


In addition to being new content, almost always when I present my work, I have to explain what moulage is, what a moulage course is and what it covers.


So I'm going to explain these common questions that are asked on my Instagram. Let's go:


WHAT IS A DRAPING COURSE?


Secrets of French Moulage is a course that teaches the original technique from zero to advanced, that is, with the course content the student learns to make molds using three-dimensional modeling and with it understands the basic fundamentals of moulage, such as blouse construction , skirts, sleeves, collars. Understands better how a garment should fit, how pence transfers take place, and so on. Moulage provides understanding of modeling, as the mold is made directly on the mannequin, so the student, even without experience in flat modeling, can understand how a mold is made. Moulage is a dynamic and intuitive process.


WHAT IS THE CONTENT OF A DRAPING COURSE


The course covers from the basic fundamentals, such as the preparation of the materials used for moulage, preparation of the mannequin, preparation of the fabric to the development of the molds. The course also addresses mold flattening, which is the final step in the process.


After studying the basic fundamentals, the student learns how to make skirts, blouses, collars, sleeves and suits.


WHY SHOULD I LEARN MOULAGE?


The moulage course aims to develop the necessary skills and abilities to build different types of moulds, without the need for ready-made diagrams or schemes.


The student will learn how to develop the mold directly on the mannequin. With this knowledge, he will have a complete view of the garment, making it possible to see the fit of the different types of fabrics, as well as visualize the body shapes.


This method serves both for the creation of simpler pieces, as well as more complex pieces, such as party dresses and wedding dresses. With this knowledge, the professional will have autonomy, in addition to creating exclusive pieces, also solving problems in the development of garments.


IS THERE A BASIC MOULAGE COURSE?


If you want to learn the basics of Moulage and see if the technique is the best option for you, you can try it through the Moulage course offered by Domestika, where I teach you all the necessary steps to build some garments. This can be a great opportunity for you to exercise and learn the basics of moulage.
