Learn how to design a motif/pattern for digital printing on fabric, either to realize a custom printed textile for your project, or to start your career as a textile designer. Starting from a sketch, a painting, a photograph, or a digital graphic, we will show how to digitally compose, enhance, and finalize the images with Photoshop. We will discuss the principles of textile designing and provide students with a packet of information, resources, ideas and inspirations. In the afternoon, you will have the chance to sketch, paint, or photograph their own images during a guided session. A selection of your work will be scanned to recreate the step by step process that leads to the final product.
