About This Class
Design your own tile to create a repeat pattern — no drawing skills needed! You'll rotate shapes, lines, and classic styles to create an attractive, simple pattern.
This 16-minute class with artist and designer Amelie Mancini gives you a foundation for understanding what makes great patterns work. Working by hand with grid paper, simple designs, and a Xerox machine, she breaks down how to create unexpected patterns you can use in countless ways.
Whether you're an artist, crafter, or DIY enthusiast, you'll discover new pattern possibilities and create a design that excites you.
