Mentoring for Textile and Surface Pattern Designers

Textile designer and tutor, Paul Singleton


Working solo as many textile designers and freelancers do, can be isolating and cause a disconnect with your ability to focus and drive your aims and ambitions forwards. It can be difficult to see the bigger context of your design work and to find an honest and helpful critique of your work. Does this sound familiar to you? Maybe you should consider some mentoring sessions by an experienced textile designer who has travelled and designed for many large, well known international brands across UK, Europe, USA, South Korea, Russia, and Turkey, as well as working in higher education, setting up BA and MA design programmes.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

As your mentor, I will work with you to help you drive your design potential, establish a plan to help you understand your audience and your creative needs. You will have access to four x 45 minute on-line tutorial sessions where all things ‘you’, ‘your creativity’, ‘your ambition’, can be discussed and plans made for their nourishment. These sessions will be focused on seeing your work grow and evolve. The on-line sessions are unstructured but focused on facilitating you and your creative journey.
