Digital Class

Chloe Russell Chang

Have you ever wanted to design your own fabric? This four-week digital introductory workshop to digital surface design is for you! Using Procreate for iPad, learn the fundamentals of creating custom repeatable patterns for printing fabrics on Spoonflower. Explore basic pattern types including toss, damask, and stripe/grid. Learn how to create a repeat pattern using tools, and then create digital patterns using Procreate software on your iPad. Gain skills for adjusting DPI, color settings, and project size, as well as how to use basic digital software tools including those for erasing, adjusting brush size, and creating layers.

Designing repeat patterns using digital tools opens up a world of possibilities for customizing products on Spoonflower and through drop-shipping services like Redbubble, Society6, and more. Beginners welcome! All participants must have an iPad and download the Procreate software before the start of class.

Instructor Bio:

Chloe Russell Chang (she/her) is a fiber artist whose introduction to the world of textiles began while pursuing her BFA in illustration from MCAD in 2014. She has always been interested in the ways that tactile and illustrated art forms interact. Her recent work has largely featured call and response between illustrated and woven pieces (sisters, not twins), and an ongoing series of repeatable pattern blocks which have been used for personal quilting and handmade clothing explorations. In addition to teaching and making art, Chloe manages the youth and Outreach programs at Textile Center as Education Associate.
