*Creating Spaces: Rulers, template and more, oh my.

Drawing and design class/demo 3 hour class $75.00

This is an intermediate level class. One of my favorite things to do is to transform a quilt by creating new spaces within it, I'll teach you how. You can add to blocks, borders, sashings, etc. Learn to use your imagination and allow it to help you create spaces then discover what to do in these spaces to enhance your quilt! I'll teach you how to use tools that you may already own and learn to use whatever else you might have on hand! We will look at the possibilities using your stencils in new ways. You have permission to have FUN in this class!! We will be drawing and creating designs in this class. This is an awesome class and will get your creative juices going. I will demo using rulers and if time allows have you practice a bit.

SUPPLIES: Please bring your favorite rulers to work with or use what is provided. Sketchbook and pencils. You may bring a small top that you would like to create designs during class.

Second Session: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
