The photos below tell the story: creativity embraces destruction… or at least the cutting up of things like quilt tops that aren’t quite working. Rethinking. Trying something different. Of course there was more to Barb’s talk, including our drawing circles that morphed into a myriad of forms, but images of her taking alarmingly large scissors to a quilt will stay with me for a long time. I’ve talked to people who have taken one or more of her new classes on the creative process and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. See more at www.barbmortell.ca and www.artleap.ca.
