COURSES FOR TEXTILE DESIGNERS FOR TEXTILE DESIGNERS
Stuggling to create seamless repeats? Want to use more than just the one kind?
If there's one important Photoshop skill to have as a textile designer, it's repeating patterns. What's a repeating pattern? Known in the trade as just a 'repeat,' it maps your design to run over an endless length of fabric such that it appears over and over again. Elements are seamlessly interlaced and there are no definitive 'edges' to your design.
It can either be very tricky to achieve or it can be very simple – with the correct technique. Learn our method and whizz through the process with ease.
Because we've used our methods over and over again in our working studio. There isn't ONE way to do a repeat – there are many ways. We show you 'the industry way.' Plus! You receive ongoing contact with your tutors so you can flick them a question at any time, and fortnightly actionable, illustration-related tips and tricks to keep your skills evolving.
