Spudnik Press

A good friend of mine sent me an invitation to join her last night to attend a pattern design workshop over at a chill community printshop space called Spudnik Press.  The director Angee hosts a range of talented creatives to come and teach on a wide range of design/print workshops.  So when I heard that they were having a workshop on how to repeat patterns, I jumped at the chance to learn something new!
Megan Lee, designer and extraordinary crafty gal ran the workshop with friendliness and taught us how to turn a design into a repeating pattern that could be used as wallpaper or on fabric.  She showed us a few tricks to help turn simple designs into intricate and interesting repeating patterns that line up seamlessly (or pretty darn close, at least)!  Here is my quick pattern drawing that I came up with.

I can't wait to play around with other drawings and experiment new ways of application.  Printing on fabric and paper is my next creative goal.  And now I feel like I have a better understanding of what it takes to make it work!  Thanks Angee and Megan!  I look forward to attending next months creative workshop!  Keep em coming :)
