The SURFACE 1°22 Design School is an education project conceived by designer Emily Wills from design studio SURFACE 1°22. Having worked in design education for over ten years, Emily saw an increasing need for practical training in digital and technical skills for the surface design industries across Interiors, Fashion and Product Design. Her teaching style and easy to follow demonstrations aim to simplify and demystify the design process. 

The SURFACE 1°22 Design School offers specific project-based courses that fill the gap between hobbyist workshops and accredited training. Short courses are affordable as hours are compacted by eliminating assessment and providing practice-led teaching and teaching. Our intimate classes are designed for participants of all abilities. Discover how to transform traditional art into 100% original surface patterns designs with hands-on, practical and skills-based teaching.

26 August 2019 • Paper Pattern Print Workshop ~ Melbourne!

This workshop was both very enjoyable, and educational. Our host, Emily was lovely and accommodating. She taught us easy to follow ways to create repeat patterns. The phone app we used is super easy and fun to work with. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, with or without experience.

15 July 2019 • Paper Pattern Print Workshop ~ Melbourne!

This half day workshop unlocked secrets about manipulating images to produce incredible designs without having to purchase expensive programs and this was all done on our tablets or phones. The ability to take hand drawn designs to the next step was so exciting and a world of possibility was opened up to us. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is thinking about fabric design and just needs help with knowing what to do next.
