Becka Rahn FREE Workshop: Designing Kaleidoscope Geometrics
Get a taste of what it is like to digitally design and print your own fabric with Spoonflower. This session focuses on abstract designs, so you don’t need to feel limited by your drawing skills. We’ll start with simple hands-on art, transform it into pixels, and create two seamlessly repeating geometric patterns all in one session. No special software or computer skills are required; you can create amazing patterns using just your web browser and some simple design tools. For the virtual version of this class, because it’s not practical to watch a Zoom session and follow along with the online part of projects in real-time, this session will be presented as an interactive demo with hands-on components, handouts and links to refer to later, plus lots of opportunities to ask questions.
No fabric design experience necessary, but you should be comfortable with basic computer skills like opening and saving a file, copy/paste. You do not need Photoshop or any special software or equipment.
Supply list: We will do a couple of small hands-on activities in this class. Please have a small handful of colored papers, a pair of scissors, and a gluestick or double sided tape. You can use ANY kind of paper in any colors. Recycled is the best: magazine pages, wrapping paper, birthday card envelopes, junk mail, scrapbooking paper, construction paper, paint chips, handpainted. It can have patterns, textures or words on it.
