This class requires you to have Adobe Photoshop CC - 2017 or later.  This free tool is not available in earlier versions.


Adobe Textile Designer is a powerful brand new plugin for Photoshop that is changing the workflow of digital textile designers everywhere. Create repeats and communicate colors for production with a lot less hassle than ever before. Still in beta-mode now is the perfect time to learn this tool and get ahead of the curve.  Photoshop has always been the best way to combine traditional media (watercolor/ gouache) with digital media, but creating seamless patterns used to require calculations. Any tweaking of the repeat resulted in frustrating fixes. This new extension will no longer require those lengthy steps and calculations.


Once you complete the workshop you can apply the same techniques learned to convert art created by hand or in other programs into flowing textile repeats that are ready to be sent to product manufacturers, textile mills, or ready to be sold as your digital art online.

Learn how to install the plugin and get comfortable in Adobe Textile Designer. Ludmila will provide you with her templates, artwork, and resources to take with you and continue practicing at home. 


Bring your laptop to this workshop and participate in the hands-on experimentation.

Summary of the workshop:

  • Download & Install the plugin extension
  • Create a simple grid repeat using the extension

Pre-workshop:

  • All registered participants will receive instructions on how to install the plugin into Photoshop before coming to the workshop.

About Your Coach,
(Ludmila Lembke)

Ludmila is a designer, educator, and creative entrepreneur, whose greatest joy is helping other creatives grow their digital design skill set, develop design confidence, and create the career of their dreams. As a college, corporate, and online instructor, she has taught thousands of students how to use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and grow in their creative careers.

As a designer she has pivoted her career many times, always following her bliss, from being a clueless assistant lingerie designer to working as a creative director of a lingerie company, to working as a freelancer, cad artist, colorist, textile designer, and more.


She has had the fantastic opportunity to see her designs all over the apparel world; her lingerie designs sold at stores such as, Lane Bryant, Leg Avenue, Urban Outfitters, to Fredericks of Hollywood, and to a small boutique owned by Patricia Fields (who styled the Sex in The City series).


Her surface designs were used on a variety of products ranging from prints on baby clothing, handbags, denim back pockets, to appliques on corsets.

And most recently at Adobe's textile design booth in Barcelona where her textile designs were showcased as a spotlighted designer.
