About This Class

Discover how Textile Designer, April Mawhinney, creates beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and transforms these into a placement print and technical mock-up for kitchen textiles.

This 44 minute class teaches techniques for drawing flowers, and how to use Photoshop to transform these motifs into a placement print for a tea towel. You will also learn how to use the template included to create a technical mock-up for your portfolio.

This class is perfect for newbie designers, illustrators and anyone who loves drawing or exploring Photoshop. An understanding of Adobe Photoshop would be advantageous, but fear not, April will walk you through each step.

This class is really great and easy to follow. I'm new to using Photoshop and I learnt lots on this course. It has built my confidence in using it as a design tool, rather than just one for editing photos.
