Start Bringing Your Vision to Life

Do your patterns always seem to fall short of your vision? Before long you start doubting your work, trying too hard to make something happen, and eventually you end up losing interest in the entire project.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Knowing the right design techniques is key to bringing your vision to life

Imagine envisioning a pattern and knowing one, two or even three techniques that you could use to bring this vision to life.

What if you had a toolbox of pattern design resources to help you bring your vision to life?

July 17th- September 1st


Our Textile Design Lab team is always experimenting and coming up with “go-to techniques” that make our work appeal to clients and buyers. We know these techniques will do the same for you!


In this 7-week course we’re sharing the exercises and techniques we use to bring our vision to life and create the patterns we see in our mind’s eye.


We pulled some these tutorials from our retired Mastering Your Market workshop. They’re only available for a limited time, so you’ll want to be sure and join us!
