Last week's class, Serendipity Strips and Curves, was all about learning to cut and piece free-hand without rulers and measurements. For some students this was a completely new way of working. For others it was the continuation of a journey they had already started on. They worked so hard that some days it felt like I was running a sweat shop! Here are some results from the week.

Barb's wall of works:
