ONSITE: Design Repeat Patterns with Scissors + Paper (This class is only offered once a year!)

Develop your own repeat patterns utilizing simple shapes, cutting paper and iterative experimentation. In this fun workshop, students will explore visual language potential in fundamental shapes to create a suite of repeat patterns. They'll learn about types of repeats and we'll touch on how to move from cut paper to applications. This workshop is great for those printing by hand (such as screen-printers, and rubber stampers), those using digital print services (such as Spoonflower), graphic designers, those who fear they can't draw, and those who want to get away from their computers for a bit, and anyone who would like to have a playdate with their imagination.

Special Notes

  • Students should bring paper scissors, an X-acto knife or something similar, and a cutting mat or cardboard to cut on. Other materials will be supplied.
