The Ultimate Guide To Repeats Featured Alumni Kate Brasil and Bhupali Gupte

On Monday February 8th, 2016 we are kicking off one of our most popular Textile Design Lab events, the Ultimate Guide to Repeats Group Study! What’s a group study you ask? Our group studies are a way for members to work through our most popular self paced courses as a community and include encouraging emails and reminders. To celebrate the upcoming UGTR group study we are delighted to share a few of the beautiful patterns that Textile Design Lab members Kate Brasil and Bhupali Gupte created in the class. Enjoy!

“To develop these designs, I took some of my old sketches for the motifs so I could focus on learning the techniques of creating perfect repeats. That’s why each one has such a different style.”
“I would definitely recommend The Ultimate Guide to Repeats. Before taking the UGTR course, repeats were such a scary mystery for me, but now I feel more confident. The videos are easy to understand. You see the process step by step. And the group study is nice to keep you on focus and with helpful feedback to improve your designs.”

“My goal behind doing the group study was to take my first baby steps into the world of surface pattern design. The UGTR taught me a structured approach and showed me the intricacies and the technical and professional side of textile design.”
