This course will introduce you to the digital skills needed, to get you started in digital textile printing. Focusing on the two main print specific Adobe Products: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, you will learn how to generate repeat pattern designs.
The patterns will then be printed onto a silk bamboo fabric. Through step by step exercises, you will be introduced to the fundamental digital printed textile design techniques and learn the differences between the two main Adobe image editing packages.
Throughout the course you will consider how to adapt your design in relation to the final application, whether this be for a fashion, interior or fine art outcome.
It would be an advantage if you could bring along any of your own drawings, or photographic influences to inform your designs.
Youll leave the course with the ability to create pattern repeats in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. You will be able to prepare print ready documents and have a greater knowledge of the processes involved with digitally printing your textile designs onto fabric*. You may go on to create your own textile designs or apply for another digital textile printing course.
