Online Interactive Workshop: FPP Pattern Design!

Another NEW tutor, the highly talented & eminently personable Scott Culley, joins the CraftyMonkies stable of top-notch talent in 2024 for a fabulous Foundation Paper Piecing workshop: FPP: Pattern Design! If you ever mused over what it would be like to create your very own FPP patterns without having to seek reference from existing patterns, this class is most definitely for YOU! Here's Scott to tell you more...

Introduction by Scott:-

Hi everyone! Since I learned how to quilt I’ve wanted to create my images and not just recreate someone else's patterns from a book. There are many resources online on how to Foundation Paper Piece (FPP), but hardly any on how to create the design. After much trial and error, I developed a system of designing patterns. It’s not pretty, but the results can be amazing. I will pull back the veil and show you how to create your own FPP pattern from a picture!

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

During this workshop, you will learn to take a photo of your choice, and using Adobe Illustrator make your own FPP pattern. I will help you set up your Artboard.  I will show you how to import your image, divide up your image into a workable grid, and start to transform your image into an FPP pattern. Then prepare the pattern for printing and use.

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

For this workshop you will need a basic understanding of Adobe Illustrator, if you are more familiar with another drawing programme such as EQ8 and Pro-Create, they also work - basically, you can adapt this lesson to a programme you are more familiar with; the concepts are the same. Please do note that the workshop will be conducted using Adobe Illustrator.

Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Computer, software programme - ideally Adobe Illustrator. EQ8 and Pro-Create also work. Any sort of drawing programme.

Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

NONE! This a 'No-Sew' Workshop!

Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • Computer
  • Drawing Programme - the class will be conducted using Adobe Illustrator
  • Pen and Paper.
