Above, is a mix of patterns I made for my MATS Home Decor 4 class, taught by Lilla Rogers and Margo Tantau. It's a fun and intensive course. We covered Metal, Fabric, Glass, Ceramics & Wood. First, we each picked a trendboard (1 of 3 offered) as reference for color, to help maintain a cohesive look. No surprise, I chose "Cupcake Market". During the course of 5 weeks, a mini exercise comes out each Monday, while the main assignment is revealed every Wednesday. A presentation board is then due by 5pm ET that Sunday. In addition, we learned about finishing techniques and read & watched interviews with some pros in the field. A great benefit of these courses, is getting to know the other talented people, from all over the world, taking part. We share information and ask advice from each other in a private Facebook group. I've taken MATS 3A & 2 bootcamps prior to this one and I always meet new artists to admire and learn from.
