ASG Presents: What's involved in fabric design?

The Australian Sewing Guild in WA is excited to present an opportunity to hear from three local fabric artisans/designers. Come along to learn what's involved in their fabric design processes - you might even walk away feeling inspired to design your own fabric, or pursue the purchase of our presenters' magnificent fabrics/designs! 
Grab a ticket ($15/ASG members, $17/non-members) and come along to hear from: 
  • Daniela Casadio, is an architect who loves to draw with both real and digital pencils. She uses these same pencils to designing fabrics which are available for purchase through  digital fabric printing services Spoonflower (booboo_collective) and Australian-based Next State. Daniela will talk us through her mostly-digital design process, and her experiences with digital fabric printing.
