What you'll do
Before you come in for class, I'll have you collect a few images, items, or any other design inspiration you may have so we have something to work from. I will also have some on hand when you arrive. You'll come sit at my sunny desk in my home studio, and we'll work together to pull ideas from the images to start creating your custom pattern. We'll talk about different shapes, colors, and basic design elements, then start piecing the design together. Once we get a solid pencil drawing, we'll use some pen and watercolor techniques to take your design from a sketch to beautiful piece of art that you can proudly display in your home.
I'm an Illustrator with a local textile design business and I've taught my design process to adults for about 5 years now. Professionally, I work with interior designers and architects creating custom patterns for their design projects like drapes and upholstery. I've taught over 1000 students in my studio and put on workshops for companies like Anthropologie, Facebook, LinkedIn, and the SF Botanical Gardens.
