Finally, we are bringing our Paper Pattern Print workshop to BRISBANE!!

SURFACE 1°22 designer ~ Emily Wills introduces participants to the digital textile and surface pattern design process fusing traditional art-making methods with low-tech digitisation. 

This workshop is perfect for beginners wanting a hands-on, simple surface pattern design experience. Paper Pattern Print is intuitive and does not require knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite - you will create repeat patterns using low-fi apps on your smartphone or tablet. 

Immerse yourself in creative play as we design original motifs and basic units by hand, then digitise artwork and turn ideas into beautiful repeatable patterns. We’ll play with scale and repetition to create gorgeous surface design artwork and ready-to-go digital files for printing your designs onto paper, fabric and customisable products. 

Please note this is a one-off event and tickets are limited.
