Begin by getting to know Ana and Florence a little better. They talk about their adventure through the world of graphic design and how they decided to join forces and build their own business from the ground up.

Get to work defining your design piece by piece and see how to make your vision a reality by exploring the possibilities and limitations of different techniques. Discover the duo's print-making process and the importance of harnessing human error throughout.

Then get ready to immerse yourself in a sea of color and learn about the ideal combinations. Ana and Florence teach two different types of collage composition; one abstract, to apply to a rug, and another figurative, for a blanket.

Next, see different techniques for enriching your collages with additional textures by experimenting with materials such as a paintbrush, a toothbrush, pens, a sponge, and cork. Also discover how to digitize your work and prepare the file for the production phase.

Now you have all the tools to create exclusive prints exploring color and a range of creative composition techniques.

What is this course's project?

You will create two specific collages to print two fabrics: a knitted blanket and a rug with the tufting technique.

Who is this online course for?

Anyone interested in handcrafts and textile design techniques.

Requirements and materials

In terms of materials you need colored paper and some other stationery that your teachers specify throughout the course.

If you'd like to finish off your designs digitally, you need basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop as well as a computer installed with the programs.
