2018 has started off with a bang and we have so many exciting events coming up in the Lab! Before our membership prices increase on February 1, 2018, I want to share information about all of our upcoming events and activities. These events are completely free for Lab members. There are no additional charges.
Throughout the year we come together as a community for various presentations. Presentations from guest experts and our Textile Design Lab team are a way for our members to explore various opportunities within our industry. Our presentations for the upcoming months includes:
January: How to find new clients with Sew Heidi
February: Trends with Laura Olivia
March: Designing for wrapping paper with Jessica Wilde
April: Attracting an agent with Jennifer Nelson
May: Licensing art with Ronnie Walter
All of our Textile Design Lab courses are self-study and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Members are welcome to work through courses and tutorials at their own pace. But to stay connected as a community, we come together every few months to work through one course together as a community. These group-study events also often provide encouraging emails and extra resources, such as free access to WGSN, the industry’s leading trend resource.
February: Surface Pattern Design Mastery
March: NEW Activewear Course & Art of Portfolio Curation
May: Photoshop for Designers 1 & 2
June: Print Studio Workgroup
July: Summer of Creativity
It’s time to stop worrying and starting bringing your visions to life—both your creative vision and your vision for a more fulfilling career and life. You may not have the confidence to see this as being possible right now, but with a friend and partner like what you’ll find in the Textile Design Lab, you soon will. I would like to personally invite you to join us. There’s no stronger community for designers, and I am personally grateful to each and every member of the Lab, as well as the Lab’s experts, for how they keep us all growing in a positive, forward moving manner.
