Three Day Pattern Design Workshop at KALA Institute in Berkeley in October
*Generating Pattern: Digital and Manual Systems of Repeat *

Three Saturdays, October 3, 10 and 17

Students will:

-Learn pattern design techniques, pattern configurations and seamless repeat.

-Learn digital methods of repeat pattern design.

-Produce repeat patterns in quantity

The multiplicity of the printed image lends itself to pattern. A single motif, when subjected to various systems of arrangement and orientation through repeat, yields an astonishing array of effects and abstract visual phenomenon. While closely allied with decoration, such practices are related to systems-based art and notions of musicality in the visual. In week one this class will employ relief and stencil techniques to investigate principles of repeat pattern design through the generation of unique patterns. Week two will include a review of digital methods of pattern generation using Photoshop as well as manual methods of seamless repeat. Week three will be a self-directed workshop in which students will generate quantities of pattern works from their designs. Skill Level: Intermediate Working knowledge of basic printmaking technique, basic photoshop operations required.
