You don’t need to be a Photoshop pro to be able to digitally design and print your own fabrics. This class is packed with projects you can design using simple and low-cost digital design tools, most that work just from your web browser. You will learn how to create a variety of projects, from repeating geometric patterns to a signature “batik” print, and gain the confidence you need to build on those basic instructions to make your own designs. Great designs don’t always just start with opening up a blank digital file, so we will learn techniques to transform cut paper art, drawings and paintings into pixels too. Then, we’ll take a tour of everything you need to know about printing with Spoonflower, including tips about color, resolution and scale.
No fabric design experience necessary, but you should be comfortable with basic computer skills like opening and saving a file, copy/paste, and using a thumb drive. You do not need Photoshop or any special software for this class.
