About This Class

Illustrate and design your own hand-drawn repeat pattern wallpaper. In this half-hour class, illustrator Julia Rothman takes you through her process of illustrating her favorite household objects, then turning her drawing into a repeat pattern for wallpaper – all with some simple cutting, pasting, and xeroxing.

Julia's simple, step-by step process for making and installing hand-drawn wallpaper makes this class perfect for every designer, illustrator, or crafter looking for a fun project. This class takes the process off the computer so you can understand how pattern design works, get some insider tips on illustration, and add a personal touch to your home.

While Julia walks through the process of making wallpaper, you could also use your pattern in countless other ways: for printed fabric, a background pattern, or just a simple hand-drawn illustrated pattern. The possibilities are endless and the reward is a home filled with personality.
