About This Class

What is Texture Mapping? you may ask, well according Wiki:

"Texture mapping[1][2][3] is a method for defining high frequency detail, surface texture, or color information on a computer-generated graphic or 3D model. Its application to 3D graphics was pioneered by Edwin Catmull in 1974.[4]"

 zzzZZZ  sorry game designers!

But for us textile designers it's also a godsend!

Long before I learned how to use photoshop, I always imagined what my prints would look like on fashion apparel and homewares, I could sew, but the design process and utilising it, before digital, was very time consuming and daunting!

Skipping forward to the present digital age, textile designing has become so much easier with the integration of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop into the textile design industry.        

The texture mapping techniques should be a part of every textile designers skill set.

Adrianna Thomas

Graphic/Textile Designer

I love love love repeat patterns!...I was born and raised in London, England and have always been the creative one in my family. 
My first muse was my Tiny Tears doll (Best dressed doll in South West London!).

I have always been passionate about drawing, sewing, photography, screen printing, tie-dying and batiking, activities which I first began at Stop Gap Summer Camp at the age of 5. 
These interests eventually lead to a Textiles diploma.
I also have an interest in Jewellery making and Silversmithing which lead to a BA Hons Degree. I consider myself an all round crafts person as well as an artistic jack of all trades.

In 2001 I took up Graphic Design and through that, thanks to Photoshop & illustrator! I became interested in digital repeat pattern making, which utillised my skills in graphic design and textiles.
It has now become an obsession to the point that I visualize my patterns everywhere; on apparel, bags, home decor etc.
