Create Your Own Fabric Design with Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop

Do you dream of having your own artwork printed on fabric so you can make a garment with a look that’s completely your own? Or have you ever wondered how to set up your designs so you can submit them to a fabric manufacturer?

In this course, you’ll learn exactly how to take your artwork - whether it’s a watercolor painting on paper or a geometric vector image in Illustrator (or anything in between) - and turn it into a repeating pattern ready for fabric printing. You’ll also learn how to apply your patterns to garment line drawings so you can preview how they’ll look on the garment of your choice.

Course dates: Feb. 8 - Mar. 6
