Our Textile & Surface Pattern Design short course is hosted by design educator and SURFACE 1°22 founder Emily Wills.
We heard you full timers ~ we are now offering our Textile & Surface Pattern Design short course over eight evenings for those of you unable to attend weekends or weekdays! Built up over eight weeks this short course offers a comprehensive overview of textile and surface design, starting with art-making and digital skills. We’ll study colour theory and colorisation techniques, as well as research and analyse trends. We’ll look at the differences in design between home product and fashion textiles and how to design for a market segment.
This immersive is perfect for those wanting a holistic overview of textile and surface design practices, geared towards professional development.
Research suggests it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill. But Josh Kaurfman suggests it only takes twenty hours to learn a new skill. Our Textile & Surface Pattern Design course is a practical, hands-on learning experience. While we love online learning, sometimes it helps to have clear instruction from someone in the room to communicate with one-on-one. We welcome your questions. We will go slow when you need help or a reminder. We will share everything we can to quench that creative thirst!
