Since 2014, I’ve taught my process of creating abstract improvisational quilts to students all over the world.

I enjoy teaching immensely, and it’s very rewarding to witness students having a breakthrough and realizing what they have inside of them just waiting to be expressed. 

However, I’ve wanted to do a workshop exclusively for those that are new to improv, which will focus more on the basics and deepen your understanding color, value, scale and composition. I find that it’s best to learn something new over time, and have the opportunity to assimilate a new way of creating. 

This class is not only for beginners, because I myself enjoy going back to the basics. I feel it is valuable in regards to the creation of my future work. However, we will not be getting into complex construction techniques in this workshop. 

Each week, students will be given a simple exercises that will serve two purposes.

1.  You will learn about color relationships, as well as the impact of value. In my opinion, value is often overlooked and will have the biggest impact on your work. We will be spending a lot of time on color! 

2.  Learning to work without a plan can be daunting, and in this workshop we will be doing this in a very simple, non-overwhelming way. I feel it’s very important to build a strong foundation, and part of that foundation includes a mindset change. To create lasting change, little steps must be taken consistently over a period of time. The exercises I will provide in this workshop will slowly take you into the “no plan zone”, in a slightly structured and more comfortable way.

What you will learn:

Upon completion of this workshop, you will have a strong foundation to build on.

  • Basic color theory and the confidence to choose a palette that will work harmoniously.

  • How to identify colors that excite you and understand why.

  • The impact of scale on your work and finding that perfect balance.

  • Identifying your personal preferences and how you like to work, naturally.

  • Creating and connecting parts.

  • An introduction to my favorite app for the iPad, Procreate, and how you can use this wonderful tool to choose a palette and much more.

  • And most important, mindfulness while creating.

This is a great first step to building a strong foundation, and discovering what brings YOU joy, as far as improv is concerned. And at the same time, you will be deepening your understanding of color, value and the basics of design.

I hope to see you next year!
