Create Your Own Repeat Pattern With Lavender & Sage

15 June @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join Aly Dort of Lavender & Sage at The Trainyard General Store on Saturday, June 15th to learn everything you need to know on how to create your very own repeat pattern using your iPad!

This workshop will cover everything from initial concept design to colour palettes to techniques, files formats, positioning and creating your repeat pattern tile. This is a 3-hour Workshop, so make sure to charge your devices beforehand.

Please note that you must have the app ‘Procreate’ installed on your iPad, and that an Apple Pencil (or similar compatible pencil) is highly recommended. Aly also recommens knowing some Procreate basics, and playing around with Procreate before the workshop, if It’s you first time playing with this app.
