Register for the workshop.

Materials that you’ll bring to the workshop:


We will be working in solids, so bring yardage/fat quarters - whatever, in a range of colors.

  • a range of colors in dark, medium, light values

  • Neutrals (black, whites, grays, beige) in darks, mediums, lights. These are very handy to have.

To save time, pre-cut, in any colors you like, 12 rectangles 4"x6"  

  • 4 light

  • 4 medium

  • 4 dark

NOTE: black and white make it easy to experiment without checking values ahead, but any dark and light will work. If unsure, check values.
