About This Class

IKAT PATTERNS are ancient as they are timeless and will always be in style. The weaving technique is intricate and time consuming, but luckily in our modern world we have the digital tools to help us recreate the beautiful effect. Illustrator makes it super easy to replicate the streaky look of your illustration so you too can be an ikat pattern designer.

Welcome to Create Ikat Patterns in Illustrator.

In this class, we will go over the process of using Illustrator tools and effects to create unique and beautiful ikat designs and patterns that can be used on textiles, prints, stationery, and more.

Happy Arting :)

Hi. My name is Marta Berk. I'm an illustrator/designer based in New York and creator of whimsical patterns, quirky lettering, and cute characters. I love colors, texture, and fun twists on old compositions. My artwork has been licensing on some amazing products, from stationery to rugs, giftware, and more. I feel lucky to be able to do art for a living and can't imagine doing anything else.

Feel free to follow me on social media and check out my other works.
