The Design Garden Trend Workshop is filled with information about the coming trends and how to incorporate them into designs using your own unique style. I design for stationary and have a very eclectic loose style. I enjoy taking the trend workshops to push my ideas for creating my sets. The trend workshops are great value because there isn’t a comparable class available that provides trend information, assignments to complete and peer/tutor reviews. The class is fun and designed in a way that fills your head with ideas. The interviews with contemporary artists working in the industry are helpful with information about design processes and how they have achieved success. I have one collection, created in the trend workshops, that was published in the Uppercase Surface Pattern Design Guide 2018. And I was recently approached by Helen Birch to use one of my designs in her new book that has a botanical theme and will be published soon. Very exciting things are happening for me as a result of taking the Design Garden Trend workshops. I highly recommend them!
