Pattern design showcase part 5 – Module 1 (March 2014 class)

We are really pleased to showcase the beautiful work from our very talented Module 1 students of ‘The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design’ who took the course in March 2014. Today is Part 5 of our 9 part series of some our fantastic students & the work they have created over the 5 weeks in class.

45.Belinda Sigstad - Too Haute To Hoot

“Rachael’s concept of inspiration has extremely influenced my perspective of design, impacted my creativity, and has helped me to flourish on my artistic journey. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have gained through this course.” Belinda Sigstad



“Looking forward to Summer School and Module 2!” – Jacqui Crocetta


43.Amanda Thompson - A Walk in the Park

“For me this course has shown me what to finally do with 23 years of drawing away in sketchbooks. I have pushed myself, tried new things and found my artistic place in the world, my confidence has soared and my future is exciting. Thank you.” – Amanda Thompson



“This course has helped me to strengthen my creative identity and to be more aware of my expressive potential, also through the comparing and the help of other classmates.”  – Serena Bellini


44.Lauren Nesbitt - Indian Summer
“This module has been life changing for me. My design confidence and technical skills have grown day by day and I am so thankful for this. The encouragement and positivity throughout the course have been fabulous.” – Lauren Nesbitt


My Document Profile
“The bonus technical information offered during the course was invaluable and really helped me understand how pattern works. I feel like I have a good foundation to explore and have a lot of fun creating new elements in my design work. Thanks!” – Deb Trevitt


47.Suzy Dobson -Heart Flowers
“The most powerful element of the course/how it’s helped me develop as a designer: The course has helped me in so many ways and reignited my passion for sketching and design. The standard of tuition and sense of community/support from fellow students is second to none. It’s helped me to develop new patterns for my wedding stationery business and I now love technical repeats so much I’m probably going to have to re-do all my existing designs!”       Suzy Dobson


48.Helena McDowie-Spring Florals
“This course has bought back my creative side in many ways but the biggest thing for me was learning Photoshop and Illustrator. It has opened up a new world and I am now able to do what I love and create something even more.” – Helena McDowie


“I have loved taking part in this course, and it has helped me to develop a new style of work and explore new techniques and ideas.” – Vicky Carpenter-Riley


50.Viktoria Rodek - Home
“I would like to thank all for you for the course! It helped me a lot in organisation. I mean, I never knew how and where to start and later how to improve my ideas. Now I have one kind of ‘road’” – Viktoria Rodek
