Improv Puzzle Independent ZOOM Class March 2024
Take my Improv Puzzle class from the comfort of your own home!
Create Improv Log Cabin blocks in a variety of sizes and put them together–like a jigsaw puzzle–into a fun original design. You can use a ruler or cut the blocks freehand. We will discuss color choices and using simple design principles to create an original dynamic composition.
Basic sewing skills and a sewing machine in good working order necessary. Confident beginner to advanced level.
Class is limited to 30 students.
Session 1: Tuesday March 5, 2024 from 1-4 PM EST
Session 2: Tuesday March 12, 2024 from 1-4 PM EST
Session 3: Tuesday March 26, 2024 from 1-4 PM EST
The first session will cover ideas about color and the techniques I use to create the Improv blocks freehand without patterns or templates, using prerecorded videos. You’ll also learn variations on the theme, from adding insets to making Angled Stripe units for additional interest.
In the second session, we’ll talk about design ideas and I’ll do a live demo of various ways to put your composition together into an exciting original design. There will be time for sewing in each of these sessions, so you can practice the techniques and ask questions while I’m on camera with you.
The third session is a feedback session. Send me your blocks or your finished design and I will put them into a presentation to share so I can give you positive, constructive feedback on finishing your composition. We’ll also have a more general discussion about composition in this session too.
The live sessions will be recorded and available to students for two months after class is over. Download the supply list here. (Navigate down the page to the red “Download Supply List” button)
Zoom links will be sent out one week before the first class.
