Everything I ever wanted to know about creating patterns was answered during the Textilice course. Super informative lessons! In short, highly recommended!

I have been working as a surface pattern designer (wallpaper) for a number of years now, but I still lacked a number of skills in Illustrator. I also needed professional feedback on my approach and method. Jolieke was really able to help me. I can apply all the information we discussed immediately and it fits exactly into the flow I am working in now. It has even exceeded my expectations. The course material is clear and concise and a pleasant reference. Jolieke enjoys sharing her knowledge and network with you and is genuinely committed to her students. The courses are professional and up to date! Highly recommended


What a nice and comprehensive course! Thanks to the good structure I managed to get everything I wanted to learn from the course. Thank you, Jolieke

The Surface Pattern Design course met my expectations in every way. The information from the industry is an important and interesting part, which gives you a good idea of the profession of a surface pattern designer, certainly also because of the calm and professional guidance of Jolieke.

Jolieke is a fantastic teacher and her knowledge of Photoshop/Illustrator and textile design is comprehensive, easily the best teacher I have had.


How fun and educational it was! By following the course you will learn the practical side, but you will also gain insight into the profession of surface pattern designer. A nice combination. Thank you Jolieke!


Jolieke is an excellent instructor and teacher that always puts her students’ creativity and individuality first. Her mentorship helped me not only develop my skill level, but to truly understand my own style.


Now that the ‘Surface Pattern Design using Illustrator’ course has finished, I realise how lucky I am to have taken it! The lessons were clear, constructive and at your own pace. It is nice to know that any question can be asked. I also liked that honest feedback was given, as I needed to learn what makes a good design. This course is a must! Thank you, Jolieke!


It is a super fun and educational course! I’ve always wanted to learn how to design in Illustrator and now I have! The answers to my questions were quick, comprehensive and most importantly, very educational!

Even when I had questions that were not directly related to the curriculum, I got a quick and clear answer. I would enrol again in a heartbeat! I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to design in Illustrator!


Inspiring and motivating course, addictive!

Perfect guidance, always very quick and comprehensive feedback and fun assignments!


The Surface Pattern Design with Photoshop course was very educational. Jolieke gives clear explanations about the design, the software and the industry. If you have a question, it is answered almost immediately, which is very nice. In short, it was a super fun and interesting course from which I learned a lot.


Even though I had some basic knowledge of Photoshop before I started the course, I still felt that I was far from being comfortable with the software. This course really changed that! You will be introduced to the world of pattern design in all its facets. The support has been great. Submitted assignments and questions are answered within a day. Always detailed and sometimes even with videos where your specific problem or question is answered and explained. Jolieke is really an expert in this field, you can see this in the answers to your questions: you get really useful and practical advice, which is very valuable if you want to work as a surface pattern designer.


It was a very enjoyable and educational course! It was easy to follow thanks to the clear instructional videos.
