Fabulous Freehand Curves – New Class

Course Type:

Cut large scale curves freehand without templates or patterns. Add dots, skinny lines, wonky triangles and more to give each curve its own personality, then combine them into a fun original design.

We’ll talk about color and design to create the composition as well as the techniques needed.

Basic sewing skills and a sewing machine in good working order are necessary.

Best for students with some experience with curves–not for beginners.

Course Length: Full day or multi-day

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that each one of us has the ability to be creative–we just need to allow our creativity space to grow. Improv is a great way to give yourself permission to play with no rules and no patterns. I encourage my students to explore their own ideas using my techniques as inspiration to design their own original art quilts. We talk about color, about simple design principles to keep in mind as you create, explore improvisational techniques that I use in my work, and discuss ideas for quilting and finishing. I enjoy teaching and my classes can be successfully adapted to different skill levels.
