Introduction to Repeat Patterns

Tuesday, February 5th
12:30-2:30PM, Learning Zone, OCAD University
Facilitated by Khadija Aziz

This 2-hour workshop will be an introduction to making repeat pattern designs by Khadija Aziz. Participants will learn two methods of drawing shapes and lines on square paper. One method includes cutting and pasting, the other includes folding techniques. Next, participants will take photos of their designs and bring the designs into PhotoShop.

In PhotoShop, participants will learn to make the drawings black and white, clean up the lines, colour them in, and make them into repeating patterns. Those who finish early can also learn to make brick or tear-drop repeats.

All materials will be provided. Workshops are free and open to current students at OCAD U. We encourage you to bring your laptop to the workshop. If you are unable to bring one, please let us know in advance so that we can arrange for one from AV Loans.
