New: Fabric Design Workshop in New York City

Heather Ross Prints Workshop / Photoshop for Fabric Design
FALL 2012

SESSION 1 April 20, 21, 22  9:30-3:30

SESSION 2 April 26, 27, 28  9:30-3:30


November 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2012

In this workshop participants will learn how to create a repeating design based on their own illustrations. Heather will lead the class through each step in her process, from inspiration and planning through drawing with a stylus and tablet and building and testing repeats using a large format printer. Students will create a single finished design and a test print on paper.

This class will be taught on 27” iMacs with Adobe Creative Suite. Participants are asked to provide their own Drawing Tablet (these can be purchased on-site, prices for suggested models start at $69), sketching tools, and ideas for fabric their designs.

A very basic knowledge of Photoshop will be needed to take full advantage of this class.   If you have never used Photoshop before we recommend that you take a Basic Photoshop class or download a trial version of Photoshop and use Adobe’s online tutorials on your own prior to class. You will need to be familiar with the selection and drawing tools (pencil, brush, and eraser) as well as the copy and paste commands.

New York City offers an endless array of inspiration for the fabric designer. Workshop will include a visit to a vintage fabric archive and several unique bookstores.
