There’s something about patterns that are deeply relaxing and soothing.

Just look at the huge effort that people put into choosing a patterned wallpaper. Or the way people pore over those adorable patterns in those adult coloring books.

So it does seem that there is so much more to creating patterns than meets the eye.

There are so many surprising uses for patterns, and as long as your imagination allows you to create freely, there is so much you can do.

If you’re a designer, an illustrator, a crafter, or any other person looking for a new hobby to work on, this is the perfect class for you.

What are these patterns good for?

A lot of things actually, and the more you stretch your imagination, the more uses you can find for it.

For example, creating your own pattern can give your home an even more personal touch. It’s not just about curating other people’s work and mixing them all into your own space.

This time, it’s all about bringing your own mind’s creations out into the open, using your home as your exhibit grounds.

Use your patterns on wallpaper, or on a printed fabric. Use these patterns to add some accents to every room, every corner, and every imaginable space that you want to liven up.

There are no limits when it comes to patterns, only infinite possibilities that you can find a hundred good uses for.
