The first-ever Pattern Camp Live workshop is this coming Saturday and Sunday, April 25-26 in Portland, OR!
There’s still time to join me if you’d like to come spend a weekend learning to make your own beautiful digital repeat patterns using Illustrator and Photoshop, live and in person with me — we’ll be gathering from 9am – 5pm both days, chatting about patterns, licensing, business, you name it! It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend full of pattern design — all you have to do is bring your laptop with the Illustrator and Photoshop installed and ready to go, and I’ll take care of the rest! Lunch, snacks, tea, a gorgeous space with room to learn, lounge, and make new friends, paper for drawing, goodie bags, and more.
Click here for more details and to register. I’d love to spend the weekend creating with you!
Here are some patterns that some of my talented Pattern Campers have made during the online version of Pattern Camp (which is coming up again June 6-7th! Registration will open on May 5th, and you can get on the email list here to get a special earlybird price if you’d like). Scroll down on the blog to see lots more gorgeous patterns they made!
When you join Pattern Camp, you get access to our incredible private Facebook group, which is the most active and wonderful group of people ever Truly, I’m not just saying that. They’re currently planning a big Pattern Camper meet-up at Surtex next month for everyone who will be there exhibiting and/or walking the show — how cool is that?
Anyway, all these patterns were shared in the Facebook group, because the Pattern Campers love showing their work to one another. They are so talented! Many of them started out with little or no Illustrator or Photoshop skills whatsoever, so if these seem intimidating and beyond your skill level, you might surprise yourself with what you can learn during the course! I’ve seen it happen dozens of times. :)
