Coloring in my Creative Play workbook

Creative Play
Are you in need of a day off? Do you even remember the last time you played? In this workshop, you’ll play in a variety of art mediums (paint, colored pencils, collage, etc.) to help rediscover your creative fire. At the same time, you’ll learn about the creative process and gain techniques you can take back into your regular quilting practice. No prep work necessary, just show up ready to play!
