This month’s challenge is based around the theme of light. Let’s explore the three different directions you could take with this trend to develop a collection of patterns for the Spring/Summer ’19 season:
1) Prism – Look to rainbows and light refraction for inspiration.
2) Dissection – This theme is about creating light by taking apart, or dissecting motifs to lighten pattern layouts.
3) Iridescent – Nature is full of beautiful examples of iridescence, from butterfly wings to sleek bird feathers, colorful minerals and more.
Does working with a print studio feel like a good fit for your business? Will you be ready to market your work to print studios this fall?
If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then I want to hear from you!
This Fall we will running a FREE mastermind event for TDL members who are ready to market their work to studios. Your input will help us to craft a mastermind experience that is tailored to your wants and needs as you approach this exciting time in your career.
Each month we welcome a guest expert into the Textile Design Lab to share an exclusive training with our members. This is such a vast industry, covering so many markets and specialties, and we love hearing from various experts and learning from their years of experience.
This month we are thrilled to welcome Heather Powers, a talented rug designer and creative organizer. In this in depth training Heather shares a strong basic understanding of what you will need to know to design for a variety of carpet and rug constructions. You’ll also have access to a free downloadable terminology guide and Heather’s list of industry resources. This training is FREE for Lab members.
