This workshop is for anyone who would like to learn more about surface pattern textile design

In the workshop we will cover the different types of surface pattern textile design, and the many considerations when designing for fashion. After viewing the textile designs on display in the Collecting in Colour exhibition, we will be inspired to create our own contemporary collaged floral textile designs on paper. We will learn how to use colour, scale, spacing and flow to create beautiful floral bouquets and clusters that would be a perfect print for a summer dress or bold shirt.
