These new workshops are an opportunity to get to meet the artists at Spudnik Press, preview what an upcoming class might be like, be exposed to new processes, and simply learn techniques and tips from professional artists to incorporate into your projects, what ever they may be.

Repeat Pattern Design

with Megan Owdom-Weitz

Wednesday June 1, 2011
$10, or pay what you can

This workshop will review a range of types and styles of repeatable patterns, helping students create intricate interesting patterns that actually fit together seemlessly. Patterns can be used for textile design, web design, making your own wallpaper, wrapping paper, etc. – and this workshop will give you a strong understanding of the principals used by designers to create all sorts of patterns. The instructor Megan Owdom-Weitz, of Megan Lee Designs, has years of experience working with her own patterns, creating her own line of apparel, and is excited to share some of the resources she looks to for inspiration.

*Workshops are hands-on, all ages (students under 16 should be accompanied by an adult), and for all experience levels. Fees are waived for students who are unable to afford this charge and ensure that the Chicago community has access to artistic projects, regardless of income.
