Katie Pasquini Masopust

Jumpstart Design & Creativity

October 7 - 13, 2018

All Levels

Learn the basics of good design and explore exercises to unleash the creative process. Bring out your inner artist and learn to apply the principles to making of art quilts.

Each day starts with a different exercise in color and composition. You will work mostly in a 12 inch square format. These exercises can then be a start of a larger piece, if desired. Composition with Line and shape will be explored as well as addressing negative space, soft and hard edges, abstraction of realistic inspirations, etc. Critiques of work will be held each evening.

For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary
art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her
early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved
from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly
landscapes executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques.

Katie's easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer.
When not in residence at her studio in Santa Fe she travels the world presenting her
contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes; not only in North America, but
in Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand.

Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005
induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver
Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival. A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, and her many classes.
