About This Class

This is a class all about textured motifs and patterns. I’ll teach you how to create textured motifs using 3 different techniques. We will use Adobe Illustrator to draw and add texture and for those of you who have an iPad I have included how to add texture to your motifs in both Procreate and Adobe Fresco. By the end of this class we'll create a textured pattern in Adobe Illustrator.

You will also learn how to create your own unique handmade textures and vectorise them to be used in your artwork.

But for those of you who want to dive straight into adding texture digitally without getting your hands dirty with paint. I’ve included free downloads with this class, they are 16 vector textures and 4 vector brushes, to be used in Illustrator.

As a bonus I’ve also included 5 free Procreate brushes from me and my husbands online shop Faber Co, which I will show you how to use to texturise your motifs in Procreate.

This is an intermediate class. It’s not a must to have an iPad to take this class, but you do need to have basic understanding of Adobe Illustrator to be able to follow along.
