About This Class

Join artist and surface pattern designer Nic Squirrell as she shows you how to take art you paint in your favourite iPad app and use it to make a technical seamless repeat pattern.

You will be using the iPad from start to finish, and combining apps to get to the end result.

Nic will walk you through her process from creating the initial artwork (she will be using Procreate for this, but you can use any painting app), resizing your image, removing any background, putting it into technical seamless repeat (you won't even need maths for this bit!) through to exporting the finished pattern tiles.

Nic will show you some things you can do with your pattern too.

Don’t forget to follow Nic to be kept up to date with her new classes.
