Pattern course showcase part 4 – Module 2 (Aug 2013 class)

We are really pleased to showcase more of the beautiful work from our very talented Module 2 students of ‘The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design (the e-course) who took the course in August 2013. Here are more of our fantastic students & the work they have created over the 5 weeks in class.

Camilla-Foss-City-Love-Lodon LOW

“Module 2 was as helpful as module 1 in making me believe in myself as a surface pattern designer. Lots of insights in the business of design and great tips in how to brand yourself!” – Camilla Foss

Gillian Lees - Bee Team

“Module 2 has really given me the confidence to design patterns and collections that are true to my style and way of working and has given me a great insight and knowledge into the surface pattern design world.” – Gillian Lees

Basic RGB

” Although I am still part way through the course, its just as good if not better then the first! just as much information packed in and the designer community has been absolutely amazing! so supportive. I loved the stationery task in this course and this collection is the creation of that project” – Genine Delahaye

Angela Kilpatrick-World Bazaar 2

“Module 2 is jam packed full of information, I’ve grown by leaps and bounds!” – Angela Kilpatrick of Willow Berry Studio


“This course is life-changing and has really encouraged me to develop my style and brand. The amount of information packed in is amazing and I feel that I have a much better understanding of trends, as well as all the tools I need to take the next step.” –
Catherine Worsley
Elizabeth Coffey-Giant Stamp_lr“Working with the creative briefs in Module 2 has really helped me integrate my style with the needs of potential clients, plus start building my portfolio.” – Elizabeth Coffey

Ilaria Benedetti Low Respattern1_small

“This Module was so full of inspirations and tips! I learnt how to look inside you and find why you really like!” – Ilaria Benedetti


“This course has pushed me to create designs in collections rather than just single patterns. I have also learned to incorporate inspiration from trends, color and my personal style to develop a theme for a pattern collection.” – Sara Franklin

“The five weeks of our course went by in a whirlwind of creativity. Module two cranked up a gear, this time one off designs were not enough – instead they had to come in collections or coordinates, as well as pencil cases, note pads, crockery sets, wallpaper and even oven gloves. The module contained a huge amount of work, ideas and industry top tips. There is so much that breaks between modules are great (and necessary) for allowing time to complete everything. Roll on module three!” – Alison Maccormaic


“Module 2 has been full to the brim with useful information and exercises.  It has really helped me to improve my branding and to focus on what hangs a collection together.” – Jessica Hayman of Rosa & Clara Designs
