Paint Your Own Cushion (Surface Pattern Design Workshop) | Friday, 17. July 2020

Join local Surface Pattern designer and Illustrator Megan Carter* to design and create a beautiful stylised hand-painted cushion cover.


In this one day workshop you will create and paint a floral placement design taking inspiration from Megan's own work, fresh flowers and visual floral mood boards collated by Megan.


You will be guided on drawing and painting techniques focusing on shape, style and placement and be encouraged to engage in your own signature handwriting when applying your design to the cushion cover with specialised fabric paints.


You will leave the workshop having gained some confidence in painting skills, an insight into the world as a Surface Pattern Designer and a beautiful cushion cover to keep for yourself or for a fabulous gift for a friend or loved one.


(*With 20 years experience working as an in-house greetings card designer, Megan is now working as a freelance designer building on her love of creating patterns and floral placements for paper goods and homewares. Megan has recently opened an Etsy shop “Megan Carter Patterns’ were she has created a collection of hand painted and digital prints and in January 2020 she will have her first debut fabric collection in collaboration with the American Fabric House ‘Cotton and Steal').
