Independent Workshops
Independent Workshops are taught directly by me for you. I am in charge of everything from the scheduling to the technology. Each independent workshop is composed of Lectures and Open Studios. During the lecture sessions, I present the assignment, lecture materials, answer questions, and share demonstrations about craft. All sessions are recorded and available for students to review for 30 days after the workshop ends.

ON THE GRID—Structure as Visual Aesthetic ($165)
Advanced workshop for students who have taken at least one other workshop with me. The grid can be a compositional structure used for creating visually compelling quilts. In this workshop, students will explore manipulating the grid through color, pattern, repetition, cutting & piecing and proportion & scale.

Circle & Curve Sampler ($165)
A complete discussion of all the ways you can improvisation-ally PIECE circles and curves. While learning these new techniques, students will also be given information about improvisational piecing techniques, and ideas for taking these techniques and creating original quilts. During the class, students create a collection of circle and curve quilt blocks–great for a sampler. Follow this link to sign up.
