The class was very informative. It answered a lot of questions for me. Nikhat really did spend the entire 3 hours just sharing knowledge consistently. Very grateful to be a part of the session.
Really appreciate your hard work. My best wishes always. Have been following your work quite closely. I have been thinking of getting into SPD for the last 7 years. I know now that after this workshop I will definitely EAT THAT FROG and take a leap and stop procrastinating.

I have attended 3 workshops with Nikhat. I have thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and honestly, I would like to commend her for sharing her Journey as an artist and an entrepreneur as candidly as possible … had some wonderful sessions with Nikhat. What amazing talent! Her session was truly an eye-opener, especially in the talk we had about how we can make use of basic resources to start making artwork and how good research is so important. Learnt so much more than just the theoretical part. Definitely a great session.

An amazingly detailed, no-holding-back session. So much information and advice. A must-do for anyone seeking to follow this path. Nikhat, you’re the best. Kudos to you for sharing without reservation. I wish you every success in all that you do. Cheers!

ARTIST & EDUCATOR
It was a good session. Nikhat covered a lot of topics and each one was explained in detail. I am so happy that I got to attend one of her classes. Beautiful session Nikhat. I am very fond of your work and happy that I got to attend your class.
Hello! First off I love your work - it's so beautiful. I've always looked up to you and you've been the most real person/artist I've come across. Your honesty and creativity have helped me and motivated me a lot. Your blogs have been so informative and now that I attended this session !!! I'm feeling happier than ever that I was a part of this. Thank you so much! This session was so informative and brilliant! I can't stress enough how genuine and real it is all. Thank you Nikhat for such an amazing session! I really enjoyed how you were very honest and open about your journey, and your insights and it put a lot of things in perspective for me. Thank you.
Hey Nikhat, It was a very insightful session and it was different from the first volume of the Surface Pattern Designing workshop. The first session was about the Surface Pattern and the creative side and this session was for more of the technical aspect of how to start and step into the industry. Thank you for giving us the knowledge. I've been following you for a while now and you seem a very kind and humble person. I love your work and I really like the travel part too. I hope you achieve a lot more and would want to work with you someday. Thank you.
~ TANISHA CHADHA
I have attended both the classes of Roadmap of SPD and I can say you get to learn a lot. You'll get to clear all those "Hows" and "What ifs" from your mind. If you are someone who is not confident that art can generate income just like any other business does you should definitely attend the classes. Nikhat is very polite, prompt, and always willing to share what she has to offer. Lots of love to you Nikhat, keep succeeding and smiling <3
~ GURSIMRAN KAUR
Amazing Session!!! Just loved it and your struggle and experience and hard work showed all through the session. It was great to learn so much from you. I'm a big fan of you and your work. I came across your profile on Instagram and absolutely fell in love with it. I have done a textile and fashion designing course after completing the 10th exam. However, due to the lack of knowledge and no master's degree available, I choose to do 12th in the commerce field. Become a graduate and a Company Secretary and have a wonderful 9 to 5 job. But I am always fascinated with art and thanks to you I am now developing and considering that I can have a passive income with the designing and maybe plan it in a way that I can thoroughly enjoy a steady income from it and retire myself from 9 to 5 job. Your session is amazing and today's session was a true delight!!!! Thank you so much, I'm looking forward to learning and interacting with you more!!! Keep inspiring people and be the same!!!
~ CHANDANI SHAH
It was a wonderful workshop, I missed attending the first one, but this one was worth the wait and money! Nikhat was patient enough to answer most of the queries and I look forward to attending more of her workshops. No one is better than her to approach and learn about SPD. I'm glad I made it to the workshop this time. Now saving up for the next EMT already. Got to learn so many new things, looking forward to applying them. Thanks once again for sharing your knowledge with us. You have heights to reach! All the very best!!
~ GUNJAN GOYAL
Cannot stress enough on the fact that Nikhat's teachings are gold. you get an opportunity to learn from Nikhat, PLEASE GRAB IT! Thank You Nikhat for such a great session :) <3 For a college student (Textile design from NIFT Chennai), your class felt like the best adulting and reality check, I just realized how much passion I have for print and surface design and that I have so much scope to completely make this my passive and active income and be able to live independently :) I have attended the session you took (I think) in January for surface design and having attended this session as well, I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to you for your time and for making it possible for me (a student on a tight budget) to attend it I look up to you for so much. You inspire me. Thank you :) <3

~ RAMNEEK KANG
This was an amazing SPD Masterclass😍. The program was well structured by Nikhat covering all aspects of how to get started as a pattern designer right from the technical part to the business part. Nikhat is a great mentor with so much patience and dedication. She shared all information regarding the pattern industry. I am extremely happy I chose to attend this class.
~ NISHA SAIKIRAN
Thank you Nikhat, it was a pleasure to attend this Master Class. I really enjoyed each session. This masterclass was full of knowledge, and good vibes. I appreciate your patience regarding all the queries we have during these sessions. In the future, I will definitely participate in other sessions too.
~ ARABELA ZAY-ANTAL
Joining the EMT workshop was the best decision I made in 2022. The classes on each day were well designed and the amount of work and energy put in every day for hours, and the preparation Nikhat as a teacher has put in before, during, and after classes also is commendable. The session was so detailed and the amount of knowledge given to us was intense. The best teacher anyone could get to learn about SPD is Nikhat, she goes out of her way to provide all materials and information and doesn't hesitate at all. She is very patient to address each and every student's doubts and she makes sure that we understood the concept and work on our assignments and gives genuine feedback to improve too. I thoroughly enjoyed the EMT workshop and I am more confident about starting out too. A big Thanks from the bottom of my Heart. How much ever we thank you wouldn't be enough. The amount of work you put in makes me want to do and learn more. The continuous talking for hours though stressful you still did it with so much energy every single day. I really appreciate the effort and will always be thankful to you to open such a beautiful path for us.
~ THANVI THOMAS
Totally recommended! I feel more confident than ever to start my own SPD business. Thanks for sharing your work and experience with us, for teaching with such delicacy and devotion, and make us feel everything is possible if you work and try your best
~ ANA LOPEZ GOLDAR
A lifetime experience I will always cherish. Why? My dream was made a reality by a lovely mentor who took it upon herself to share her knowledge, experience, and guidance with patience, and integrity to show me the path I need to follow to achieve my goal. Thank you Nikhat. It was all the time invested.
~ BONAPARTE TELLIS
The EMT class is going to bring me many positive things and success to me because it is created very well by Nikhat, covering all topics and problem-solving sessions. Thank you Nikhat for teaching me all tips and hacks which will make many things easier for me. You are doing an amazing job. Please don't stop educating people about SPD. Thank you again Nikhat.
~ DEVYANI SHINDE
This class was like an epiphany because the topics included are so detailed. Nikhat has shared knowledge and experiences of her creative journey through these sessions. Daily assignments are really helpful and filled with practical knowledge of the SPD industry. Nikhat was extremely helpful and positive. Within 7 days I was able to create seamless patterns using industry-approved software. Sessions also had deep knowledge about how creatives can take steps toward their business. These sessions are purely made to take artists on a journey toward growth and a high level of creativity. Being in such a community and witnessing other people, their growth and experiences is also a wonderful thing to be a part of. Thank you Nikhat for this. I will be forever grateful to you for being a part of my creative journey. Thank you isn't enough but I'm sure you'll be the first person with whom I'll be sharing my first win.
I was looking for this kind of platform to try something new in art. I was really happy that even with having some experience in art, I have learned to turn them into patterns and find a growing opportunity in the creative field. This workshop has exceeded my expectations as Nikhat has shared her knowledge and personal experiences in Surface pattern designing. I really enjoyed the journey we were led on to try different ways of thinking and creating patterns. Amazing workshop, kept our attention till the end of the day! Thank you so much. I really appreciate for sharing your creative process and journey with us. You are a great presenter and teacher. I gained a lot - a structured process to create patterns, and tons of tips, and strategies to improve my work. Hopefully, I will make you a proud teacher by pursuing my interest. After this workshop I am not starting as a beginner, I am starting with experience and knowledge. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou Nikhat. I owe you big time for this workshop because finally, I have got direction on where I want to go ahead in my journey.

How To Build Multiple Income Streams
SPECIAL CLASS | 2023
I would recommend everyone who’s thinking of starting out as a full-time artist but doesn’t have a clear vision of what to do with the vast opportunities this industry has to offer. She gives a clear roadmap to approaching things, helps break limiting beliefs, and broadens your perspective. You’ll not regret investing in this workshop!! Nikhat has done far better than my expectations. I think I’ve more clarity now. I did not hesitate for once to ask her those difficult questions. It felt like having a big talk with a close friend. More power to you girl!!
~ RAASHI VERMA
It was a well-structured workshop discussing multiple ways to earn as an artist, truly one of a kind by a mentor who's been through it all. I loved how Nikhat shared her experience with every point she presented, which made the process so relatable and achievable. It was a huge risk I took enrolling in this class from a financial perspective in my life right now, but I feel like it was so worth it after attending the class. Thank you, Nikhat, for sharing your journey and your vast learnings with us. It truly boosted my confidence in my art, which will really help me move forward in my journey with the actionable steps you mentioned throughout the class.
~ SHIVANGI PANDEY
This workshop is a fabulous way to have an insight into what and how an artist can grow and sustain. It's all an artist should and would want to know to remain relevant. I am trying to grow in the art world and grow out of the rat race of a corporate job, this session couldn't have come at a better time. The simplicity and yet the depth with which Nikhat explained each area is applaudable. I am grateful Nikhat. Nikhat, I am so thankful that you had this session. I was so clueless in so many areas while trying to grow as an artist and I must say the session today has filled me with zeal, ideas, and vision. It's a risk that I am going to take and persevere while I get to a place you helped me visualize.
~ SHRADDHA PANDA
A valuable session if: 1)You are a beginner artist with absolutely no clue about how to handle money & personal finances. 2) If you are not pursuing art as a career *just* because you have absolutely no clue how to generate income from it. Nikhat will tell you about the right money mindset and several income streams for different artists out there.
~ NIPUN JAIN
This workshop gave me so many insights on how to pursue art as a career and made my thoughts pretty clear. We all have certain ideas in our heads, but we might struggle with a lack of clarity. This is where Nikhat's workshop came in handy. Very informative, and she was very happy to answer all our queries very patiently. Enjoyed every bit of it. Nikhat Your workshop gave a lot of information for a beginner in art like me Nikhat. My mainstream work used to be architecture. Now I am at crossroads in my life and I decided I liked art better than architecture. But I always had this doubt whether I can make it through in this field since it's very new for me and I have no idea where this journey will take me. So far I am sure of one thing, I like to create art. And I am yet to explore this vast field. This workshop gave me the right leads and I am super glad I attended it. Thank you for being a part of my life-changing decision. Hope it leads me to better heights.
