New Town Culture : From Pattern to Product with Sarina Mantle

9 – 13 August 2021


Surface design is described as the development of prints and patterns that can be applied to any surface; from fashion design, graphics, art prints, home decor, book covers, gifts and more; there are so many ways for you to make your mark. We're really excited to be joined by Sarina Mantle [Wildsuga] in a series of hands on, creative workshops, and explore how you can create your own patterns. We’ll be looking to nature for inspiration, and coming up with new ideas for products and designs that will transform the spaces we live in!
