Join Sheila Moylan for a two hour session and learn how to create repeat patterns.

In this two hour session you will learn how to create repeat patterns by turning your half finished drawings and ideas into a pattern which you can use in your design work.

Equipment for the session:

  • tracing paper (greaseproof paper will do)
  • drawing paper
  • pencils
  • source material

Before the class, shade some of your tracing paper on the back with pencil to make carbon paper.

Where to find your source material…

  • How about that drawing you did of a flower, leaf, animal or busy
    streetscape
  • You can even use photos

Sheila will show you how to make a mundane image into a dazzling and exciting design for use on whatever you choose.
