ONLINE CLASSES AT THE PRINT SCHOOL

WANT TO LEARN TO DRAW AND PAINT LIKE A TEXTILE INDUSTRY PRO?

You asked, we listened! You wanted online workshops to access our studio experts from anywhere in the world so we made these online classes just for you. Here are our two most popular workshops to teach you the skills to illustrate and paint like an industry professional.

“Being industry run sets these classes apart from what everyone else is offering as it gives you a real insight into how a textile design studio works.” - Danielle, Print School Student

Longina Phillips Designs has almost 30 years of experience in the textile design industry and is Australia’s leading print design studio. So we know what we’re talking about! We’re known for our creativity and forward-thinking designs, which both predict our customers’ needs and inspire future collections. 

We produce designs using a range of techniques, with a strong focus on a hand-rendered aesthetic. Our designs are sold internationally to customers from the swim, apparel and homewares industries, and include Seafolly, Zara, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren and Prabal Gurung.

The Print School was designed by us as a way of giving back to and engaging with the awesome creative community we’re part of. Both our customers and Instagram followers (you guys rock) expressed an interest in learning creative skills from our industry leading designers, and so The Print School was born. We’ve been offering Illustration and Watercolour classes in our Sydney studio, taught by our very own designers, for over 2 years now. 

But this just wasn’t enough. Our international audience stuck up their hands and said “What about us?” And we said “Hold up guys. We’ve got you.” So after teaming up with film makers The Honest Jones and a truly mammoth effort, we’re so proud to launch these online video classes at The Print School.

SO NOW YOU KNOW WHO WE ARE. YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP YOU, RIGHT?

“The Illustrated Floral workhop I did totally cracked open my inner creative being and showed me talents I had no idea I had! The two knowledgeable and uber-talented instructors showed us insanely cool skills and at the end of the day I had a piece to proudly hang in my home. Such a blast and I now have all these great painting skills up my sleeve I never knew about!”- Zoe, Print School Student
