A Journey to Improv

A Journey to Improv. Join us for an interactive two-hour trunk show/demo of improv techniques by Colleen Kole. There will be plenty of time for questions as you hear Colleen’s story of how she uses improv in her design practice and how you can build a new repertoire of techniques so you feel comfortable trying them at home. You will also hear about her transition to a full-time artist and an exhibitor of her art nationally and internationally with this action-packed trunk show.

Coleen's Bio:

Colleen Kole is a full -time studio artist who quilts and dyes her own fabrics. Her quilt journey began by picking up unfinished quilt blocks and hand sewing them together with no previous sewing knowledge. They just needed to be rescued with a needle and thread to join them. Fast forward to a life with a busy family and a sewing machine became a part of her creative life.
