Create designs and patterns using scale, color, and prints

Inés Aguilar—designer and creative director of La Casita de Wendy—has over two decades of experience transforming fabrics, colors, and shapes into patterns for colorful and original fashion collections. Her work has traveled the globe, and her brand has sold garments to well-known stores such as Anthropologie (USA), Cocktail (China), Peseta (Spain), and Lamp (Japan). She also shares her passion for textile design as a teacher.

While her first course Design of Textile Prints teaches manual and digital printing techniques, this second course shows you how to get the most out of textile prints by creating compositions and unique designs based on freehand drawings.
