SURFACE 1°22 designer ~ Emily Wills introduces participants to the digital textile and surface pattern design process fusing traditional art-making methods with low-tech digitisation. 

This workshop is perfect for beginners wanting a hands-on, simple surface pattern design experience. Paper Pattern Print is intuitive and does not require knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite - you will create repeat patterns using low-fi apps on your smartphone or tablet.
