Course overview

Do you see yourself working in an industry design team? Perhaps, you see yourself running your own creative business? Our Surface Pattern course lets you realise your creative potential combining practical print processes with digital and technical skills. This course will encourage your ambition and build your design confidence.

During this 5-week course, you will explore some of the skills needed to understand what Surface Pattern is and its techniques. You will be exploring pattern trends within fashion and homeware as starting points for your own personal projects. You will learn how to create a Moodboard, which will be the starting point to then create your own patterns. You will learn how to create your own patterns through a range of specific drawing and painting techniques used by designers within the textile industry. Finally, you will learn how to develop your sketches into final designs.

The course will run for 5-weeks on a Tuesday afternoon or evening, at the college.
