Have you ever walked into a fabric store and felt totally overwhelmed? Benjamin Mach – Creative Director of Mood University and two-time Project Runway contestant – can help. In this comprehensive course, he takes you on a figurative walk through the aisles of Mood Fabrics in New York City, explaining the difference between fibers and fabrics, wovens and knits, and everything in between. A range of fibers are discussed here, including cotton, linen, wool, silk, synthetics, and specialty fabrics. Once you have a grip on the composition of fabric, you’ll learn how fabric drapes on the body so you can select the perfect fabric for your project.
