Adobe Illustrator Essentials

for Fashion and Textile Designers

Adobe Illustrator for Textile and Fashion Designers is ideal for anyone working in Fashion or Textiles Industries to start creating their ideas into a digital format for reproduction. The course covers Illustrator’s sophisticated drawing, and text controls, to create complex shapes, using adjustable strokes, and painterly effects to allow you to create beautiful, professional designs and repeat patterns.

Throughout the course, the emphasis is on practical, hands-on learning with a series of exercises designed to consolidate new skills and build confidence.

Despite a challenging start due to my severe lack of digital expertise, I have found Tina to be a very patient tutor. I love my Textile designing, and I find that Tina is inspirational, as well as being instrumental in her marketing advice. She explains the different programs clearly, which, when taught by means of a “conference call” session are not always easy. However Tina has helped me so much with the programs and is motivational in helping me to maintain my enthusiasm and interest, and I have learnt so much. Thank you!

Very relevent - work undertaken was all work that i needed to do for my job. The training was specific to what i needed to do. Very professional. Very up to date and more than one machine to get used to all the media. Extremely friendly atmosphere. very relaxed. I felt very welcome the whole time i was there I would definately recommend this.

Thoroughly enjoyable and found the course both useful and informative. Very nice setting to learn in.
