TDL Marketing Workshop

It’s not too late to join us for our first Marketing Workshop in the TDL!

In this three week workshop we will explore the theme of “celebrating smallness” and how this message can be shared across various social media platforms.

The workshop runs from September 23 – October 11th and includes access to WGSN Insight.

Lessons will be posted to the Lab for all to access, but please register if you would like to receive email updates and access to WGSN during the workshop.

Fall Schedule Released

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! In this Pattern Observer blog post you’ll find our schedule of events for the remainder of 2019. ⁠

One of the most exciting changes is that we are extending our partnership with WGSN to include access to WGSN Insight. If you are not familiar with the platform, Insight “provides original intelligence and research on the latest consumer, marketing, retail and innovation trends.” We will be using this tool in new bimonthly marketing workshops held within our #textiledesignlab community. These workshops will help to improve the connections that members are making with buyers, clients, consumers, while also helping to inform on the design process to make our members more attractive candidates for in-house design positions and internships. ⁠

All events listed in our schedule are free for members. There are no additional fees for these events or courses. Here are just a few of the upcoming events, you can see the entire list in this blog post.

  • Oct 14: Sellable Sketch Group-Study, including access to WGSN Fashion or Home
  • Oct 28: Print Studio Workshop


Weekly Art Critiques. Please join the TDL community on THURSDAY at 1 PM Eastern for a live art critique. Our art critiques are fun events where Lab members come together to review artwork and ask questions about pattern design, marketing and sales. A registration link will be emailed the morning of the critique and will also be posted in our Weekly Art Critique forum. Textile Design Lab members can watch past critiques here.
