Develop your own repeat patterns utilizing simple shapes, cutting paper, and iterative experimentation. In this fun workshop, students will explore visual language potential in fundamental shapes to create a suite of repeat patterns, while learning about types of repeats and touching on how to move from cut paper to applications. We’ll begin by looking at the work of several influential designers and quickly move into design making. This workshop is great for those printing by hand (such as screenprinters, rubber stampers), those using digital print services (such as Spoonflower), graphic designers, those who fear they can’t draw, those who want to get away from their computers for a bit, and anyone who would like to have an imagination playdate.
Level: All levels welcome—no experience necessary
Registration extended to February 27, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
