Duplicata: Designing your own repeating patterns
In this workshop, pattern designer and artist Vikki Wiercinski will show participants the basics of creating repeating patterns. Using basic materials (paper, pencils or markers, scissors and tape), the workshop will show you how to plan and play with the building blocks of pattern design. The workshop will include a quick overview of pattern styles and repeat techniques. Participants will learn the principles of tessellation, of tiling designs to create pattern design. They will be guided through playing with small designs & collage to create repeats.
The workshop will take place in the Alberta Craft Gallery’s lower level exhibition space where the feature exhibition Ornament & Crime is sure to provide lots of decorative inspiration for your mark-making! All materials will be provided.
