About This Class


Marbled designs are very on trend right now, and in this class we will be using the amazing Edru app to make beautiful digital marbled images on the iPad.

It's very addictive!

We will explore different ways of creating with Edru, and then using the Affinity Photo app we will make seamless repeat pattern tiles from our complex marbled images.

This class is suitable for anyone with an iPad, and no prior knowledge is required as I will take you step by step through my process.
