About This Class

Do you have drawings in your sketchbook that you dream of turning into patterns? In this 22-minute class, you will create a repeating pattern from your handmade artwork in Adobe Photoshop! 

We’ll walk through the entire process from start to finish: choosing your piece, scanning and editing your artwork, and mastering Photoshop tools to achieve a seamless, dynamic repeat. Whether you’re brand-new to Photoshop or want to learn a new application for a familiar tool, this class will make it easy to build your first repeat. At the end of the class, you will have created a pattern block that you can upload to print-on-demand websites like Spoonflower, Sprout Patterns, and Roostery Home.

I can't wait to see your work, and will be giving feedback on all the patterns in the Project Gallery. Feel free to leave any questions below, or email me at [email protected] !

Let's keep in touch!
