I'm now a proud graduate of 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' run by Beth Nicholls and Rachael Taylor. I've still got lots to catch up on and loads of information to absorb but have learnt so much over the three modules and enjoyed every moment. One of the best things to come from the course is the network of fellow students. We've come from all over the world to share our love of pattern design and everyone has been really supportive. For anyone thinking of signing up to the course, I highly recommend that you just go for it.
I first signed up for the course to gain more experience in pattern design for my wedding stationery, I now have dreams of seeing my patterns on textiles and homewares as well as stationery, and feel when the time is right I have been given the knowledge and confidence to make this happen.
But first things first! I've been concentrating on new designs for wedding stationery featuring some of my new patterns. They'll be launched next month and I'll be sharing some images on my blog soon. In the mean time here's a selection of patterns I've created whilst on the course.
