If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to create custom-designed artwork, textiles or desktop wallpapers, we have an upcoming online class with your name on it. We’ve teamed up with pattern extraordinaire Megan Gonzalez to teach you the basics of designing patterns in Adobe Illustrator. The best part? Once you’ve mastered the tools and techniques, you’ll know how to transfer your pattern design to fabrics, prints and digital files like a pro.



This course is perfect for pattern patrons who want guidance on how to to think about and create colorful patterns and texture. Plus, it’s a great way to learn how to navigate creative design software like Adobe Illustrator as well.

Get ready to let your imagination run wild with all the shapes and colors you love. In Megan’s fun and informative course, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Use basic Adobe Illustrator tools.
  2. Draw, design and scale abstract shapes to create custom patterns.
  3. Print and produce your patterns for use on various surfaces.

After taking this class, you will be equipped with a new set of creative skills that will allow you to create patterns for any surface. You’ll be creating custom wallpaper, gift wrap and framed art before you know it.
