FUNdamentally Circles with Brenda Gael Smith
3-Hour Workshop
4 pm - 7 pm EDT, Saturday, May 14

Focus on the core technique of freeform piecing circular designs without pins and templates. It's liberating and it's FUN! After some skill-building exercises, students will start on their own compositions with confidence.
