Your portfolio preparation is a paramount to your success with Degree and Master applications! We are here to deliver a high end ‘Bespoke’ service to fit your individual needs so please do share them with us. Our group size is kept small so we can deliver this personal approach. These art classes are suitable for complete beginners to advanced level.

This a very exciting ‘hands on’ Course that can help Fashion Design students at all levels. You may already be on a Fashion Design Degree course wanting to ‘get to grips’ with Draping on a Mannequin. At London Art Portfolio we can help you build up your confidence with a deeper, more experimental understanding of how to layer and manipulate fabric on a mannequin! Or, you may be at school or a Foundation course in art and design wanting to ‘get ahead’. In this way all students are introduced to the concept of innovative fashion design being born from a far more experimental approach to the design of fashion! This is what the art school and fashion runways are looking for!

At the start of this art course everyone will learn how to research for fashion design. All students are encouraged and introduced to possible starting points, which will include historical and contemporary thoughts and concepts for your personal research around a project. Sketchbook development for your ideas, fabric samples, note making and found oddities will be paramount from the start of the course. We will give you the support you need. Through this creative journey you will become more aware of the importance of research to become an innovative designer.

Whilst you pin and play with your fabric directly onto the dummy, you will learn how to drape, re-pin, layer, twist, knot and shape to create fashion design without actually making a garment, this is a very exciting and satisfying experience.

Throughout this process all students are encouraged to record their work with your own camera. Support and direction will be given during these photography stages, so please do not worry about this aspect. You are here to learn and we are here to help you! This part is essential though. Remember the documenting of your design development whilst you are on theDraping on the Mannequin course, is your 3D visual, photographic record of the various stages of your course progress. This in turn becomes a significant part of your whole portfolio preparation whether it be for study or work interviews.

Students are encouraged to print out some of this journey as we work through the course, staff will help you select. In the final stages of the course, the presentation of this work will be re-edited for your interview portfolio.

Beyond the course

If anyone requires further 1-1 Tutorial support beyond the course, London Art Portfolio can most certainly advise you on your whole physical portfolio preparation, sketchbook and design development, plus your digital portfolio presentation for your interview application stage and fashion illustration techniques too.

Draping on the Mannequin Mon to Fri 9am – 3pm 1 Week £525

Your portfolio preparation is a paramount to your success with Degree and Master applications! We are here to deliver a high end ‘Bespoke’ service to fit your individual needs so please do share them with us. Our group size is kept small so we can deliver this personal approach. These art classes are suitable for complete beginners to advanced level.

This a very exciting ‘hands on’ Course that can help Fashion Design students at all levels. You may already be on a Fashion Design Degree course wanting to ‘get to grips’ with Draping on a Mannequin. At London Art Portfolio we can help you build up your confidence with a deeper, more experimental understanding of how to layer and manipulate fabric on a mannequin! Or, you may be at school or a Foundation course in art and design wanting to ‘get ahead’. In this way all students are introduced to the concept of innovative fashion design being born from a far more experimental approach to the design of fashion! This is what the art school and fashion runways are looking for!

At the start of this art course everyone will learn how to research for fashion design. All students are encouraged and introduced to possible starting points, which will include historical and contemporary thoughts and concepts for your personal research around a project. Sketchbook development for your ideas, fabric samples, note making and found oddities will be paramount from the start of the course. We will give you the support you need. Through this creative journey you will become more aware of the importance of research to become an innovative designer.

Whilst you pin and play with your fabric directly onto the dummy, you will learn how to drape, re-pin, layer, twist, knot and shape to create fashion design without actually making a garment, this is a very exciting and satisfying experience.

Throughout this process all students are encouraged to record their work with your own camera. Support and direction will be given during these photography stages, so please do not worry about this aspect. You are here to learn and we are here to help you! This part is essential though. Remember the documenting of your design development whilst you are on theDraping on the Mannequin course, is your 3D visual, photographic record of the various stages of your course progress. This in turn becomes a significant part of your whole portfolio preparation whether it be for study or work interviews.

Students are encouraged to print out some of this journey as we work through the course, staff will help you select. In the final stages of the course, the presentation of this work will be re-edited for your interview portfolio.

Beyond the course

If anyone requires further 1-1 Tutorial support beyond the course, London Art Portfolio can most certainly advise you on your whole physical portfolio preparation, sketchbook and design development, plus your digital portfolio presentation for your interview application stage and fashion illustration techniques too. Many Degree Fashion departments ask for Fashion Illustration too as part of your UCAS application process. But first enjoy and create on the wonderful Draping on the Mannequin short course.

We are here to deliver a high end ‘Bespoke’ service to fit your individual needs so please do share them with us. Our group size is kept small so we can deliver this personal approach. These art classes are suitable for complete beginners to advanced level.

This a very exciting ‘hands on’ Course that can help Fashion Design students at all levels. You may already be on a Fashion Design Degree course wanting to ‘get to grips’ with Draping on a Mannequin. At London Art Portfolio we can help you build up your confidence with a deeper, more experimental understanding of how to layer and manipulate fabric on a mannequin! Or, you may be at school or a Foundation course in art and design wanting to ‘get ahead’. In this way all students are introduced to the concept of innovative fashion design being born from a far more experimental approach to the design of fashion! This is what the art school and fashion runways are looking for!

At the start of this art course everyone will learn how to research for fashion design. All students are encouraged and introduced to possible starting points, which will include historical and contemporary thoughts and concepts for your personal research around a project. Sketchbook development for your ideas, fabric samples, note making and found oddities will be paramount from the start of the course. We will give you the support you need. Through this creative journey you will become more aware of the importance of research to become an innovative designer.

Whilst you pin and play with your fabric directly onto the dummy, you will learn how to drape, re-pin, layer, twist, knot and shape to create fashion design without actually making a garment, this is a very exciting and satisfying experience.

Throughout this process all students are encouraged to record their work with your own camera. Support and direction will be given during these photography stages, so please do not worry about this aspect. You are here to learn and we are here to help you! This part is essential though. Remember the documenting of your design development whilst you are on theDraping on the Mannequin course, is your 3D visual, photographic record of the various stages of your course progress. This in turn becomes a significant part of your whole portfolio preparation whether it be for study or work interviews.

Students are encouraged to print out some of this journey as we work through the course, staff will help you select. In the final stages of the course, the presentation of this work will be re-edited for your interview portfolio.

Beyond the course

If anyone requires further 1-1 Tutorial support beyond the course, London Art Portfolio can most certainly advise you on your whole physical portfolio preparation, sketchbook and design development, plus your digital portfolio presentation for your interview application stage and fashion illustration techniques too. Many Degree Fashion departments ask for Fashion Illustration too as part of your UCAS application process. But first enjoy and create on the wonderful Draping on the Mannequin short course.

This a very exciting ‘hands on’ Course that can help Fashion Design students at all levels. You may already be on a Fashion Design Degree course wanting to ‘get to grips’ with Draping on a Mannequin. At London Art Portfolio we can help you build up your confidence with a deeper, more experimental understanding of how to layer and manipulate fabric on a mannequin! Or, you may be at school or a Foundation course in art and design wanting to ‘get ahead’. In this way all students are introduced to the concept of innovative fashion design being born from a far more experimental approach to the design of fashion! This is what the art school and fashion runways are looking for!

At the start of this art course everyone will learn how to research for fashion design. All students are encouraged and introduced to possible starting points, which will include historical and contemporary thoughts and concepts for your personal research around a project. Sketchbook development for your ideas, fabric samples, note making and found oddities will be paramount from the start of the course. We will give you the support you need. Through this creative journey you will become more aware of the importance of research to become an innovative designer.

Whilst you pin and play with your fabric directly onto the dummy, you will learn how to drape, re-pin, layer, twist, knot and shape to create fashion design without actually making a garment, this is a very exciting and satisfying experience.

Throughout this process all students are encouraged to record their work with your own camera. Support and direction will be given during these photography stages, so please do not worry about this aspect. You are here to learn and we are here to help you! This part is essential though. Remember the documenting of your design development whilst you are on theDraping on the Mannequin course, is your 3D visual, photographic record of the various stages of your course progress. This in turn becomes a significant part of your whole portfolio preparation whether it be for study or work interviews.

Students are encouraged to print out some of this journey as we work through the course, staff will help you select. In the final stages of the course, the presentation of this work will be re-edited for your interview portfolio.

Beyond the course

If anyone requires further 1-1 Tutorial support beyond the course, London Art Portfolio can most certainly advise you on your whole physical portfolio preparation, sketchbook and design development, plus your digital portfolio presentation for your interview application stage and fashion illustration techniques too. Many Degree Fashion departments ask for Fashion Illustration too as part of your UCAS application process. But first enjoy and create on the wonderful Draping on the Mannequin short course.

CAD Rhino 3D Mon to Fri 9am – 3pm 1 Week £525

3D CAD programs help you explore design ideas, visualise concepts, and simulate how designs will perform in the real world. 3D CAD models are used to shape ideas, determine dimensions, create visual renders, technical drawings and templates to produce industrial products. Allowing you to visualise and communicate your design ideas, CAD programs can be used for a wide range of applications in architecture, fashion, product design, graphic design and packaging, interior design, animation and much more. We will cover step by steps in how to create 3D models using Rhinoceros 3D (typically abbreviated to Rhino) which is a 3D computer graphics and computer aided design software which focuses on producing mathematically precise representation of curves and freeform surfaces.

Rhino is used in processes of computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), rapid prototyping, 3D printing and reverse engineering in industries including architecture, industrial design (e.g. automotive design, watercraft design), product design (e.g. jewellery design) as well as for multimedia and graphic design.

On this series of CAD workshops you will start by learning the interface of the software and the various commands, designing 2D drawings of the object with the scale and proportions to then elevate the drawing into 3D and create the surfaces. We will then focus on applying materials and create renderings as well as technical drawings.
