Project Description

ASSIGNMENT

To complete this class, please show the following in your project:

  • A selection of your hand drawn flowers and leaves, drawn in black pen (a scan or photograph)
  • Your colour palette inspiration  (a scan, screen shot, photograph or jpeg)
  • Final design of your Tea Towel Placement Print ( a jpeg or screenshot)
  • Technical Mockup of the final Kitchen Textiles (a jpeg or screenshot)

Please feel free to add in some text about your background, why you are taking the course and any inspiration you have used, as I love to hear my students stories.

EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS

Below is a list of the equipment which you will need to complete this course:

  • Adobe Photoshop -  A free trial found here.
  • Masking tape - to stick your printout of the flower to the paper you are drawing on.
  • Lightbox or alternatively, a window.
  • Thin white paper - low cost 80gsm printer paper is perfect.
  • Black pens for drawing - I use Staedler 0.5 and 0.3mm Pigment Liners.
  • Scanner or alternatively a camera, phone or tablet with a camera.
  • A Printer (or access to a local copy shop) to print out the flower you are going to draw. I have attached two photographs of flowers for you to use; simply download them and print them out at A4 size.

Not mandatory, but useful tools include:

  • Wacom Tablet - I use the Intuos Pro Medium tablet
