Come join us as we present four different perspectives, share stories of our own experiences with creative practice, and get some actionable tips, tricks and exercises to help you push through creative blocks.
We all have neural pathways for creativity, and we’ll be sharing practical hands-on techniques for strengthening those pathways so that we no longer rely on willpower, but can instead lean on our habits for getting started and following through.
All sessions will be recorded and available to watch over and over, because sometimes you need to hear things more than once.
• Four instructional and interactive Zoom sessions with all four instructors
• Four weekly Zoom check-ins to reflect on your practice and mingle with other participants, led by a different instructor each week
• Class time will be a mix of presentations, live exercises to kindle creativity and time for Q & A
• Students will receive some pre-recorded content, PDF downloads, and a specially curated resources page to continue on this path after class

The Sunny quilt is a fun way to learn a new way to paper piece and take on gentle curves.With this new take on paper piecing, you don’t have to spend time tearing out papers, as the foundations are reusable! And it's a great technique for precision piecing and lining up tricky seams. We will also delve into value and how by simply changing the color placement within the block we can create a lot of variation in how we see the block pattern.
