In this free workshop, textile designer Maria Cooper will help you take your first steps into creating repeat patterns from your artwork – whether this be for use on fabrics or wallpaper…..or on something else entirely!
Over the course of this one-day workshop Maria will:
- Introduce you to how she uses repeat patterns in her own work and how other designers use repeat patterns in theirs
- Help you understand what makes great imagery for use in a repeat pattern and how to manipulate these images to fit a repeat structure
- Introduce you to the different kinds of repeat structures and how to create them.
- Talk about her own work and share insights into how she has generated income from her art
By the end of the day you will have created two repeated artworks.
