WORKSHOP - Premeditated Improv ... three days of workshops that work together ... or independently!

COMING IN 2020/2021

Premeditated Improv 
… because nothing ever just happens

 Like all of my workshops the goal is that students will learn something new and go home with NO new UFOs.

First Offense – half day (3 hours)
Sample Quilt to follow
·    Improv games to get folks comfortable with free hand cutting, letting go of traditions, being free with random colour.

Sample Quilt … ‘Life’s Better Because of Us: Reflections of a Misfit’

·    ‘Building’ a simple quilt using multiples of 2, 4, 6, 3, 12 in squares and rectangles.
