Event Details


Join amazing contemporary maker Jess Wheelahan for a day of incredible improv piecing. Jess will have lots of show and tell to inspire you and some creative exercises to get your creative juices flowing. Jess will also talk bout her recent brush with fashion fame making pieced improv work that was made into incredible couture outfits presented at the recent Paris catwalk collection for Romance Was Born and for an Aussie rock band’s film clip! . Maybe this class could inspire you to make some improv fabric for wearables…? Check out Jessica’s instagram page to see the whirl-wind of creativity that is her making practice! 

In this class with Jess, it’s your chance to grab your scrap bag and come along to our amazing (almost) ‘anything goes’ class. By hand or machine, shake up your regular process and embark on a quilt or wall piece (big or small) of your own design that explores any or all of the elements design such as shape, line, colour, size, space, value and/or texture. You can also play with words on quilts; statement works. A trained and practicing Secondary School Visual Arts Teacher as well as prolific & driven improv quilt maker, Jess has all the tips and tricks to help you get started on an idea and then focus once you’re under way! This will be an exciting and inspiring workshop where Jess will work through her process with us. Learn to bring the seeds of an idea to life, using Jess’ techniques and add layers of meaning to your work. We encourage class members to have a chat with Jess prior to class so she can prepare some ideas and inspiration for your particular making journey!!

Come along and join us, it promises to be a very enriching day or two days. You can choose to book for either day or both.
