Katie Pasquini Masopust – Stitched Paintings
Date: Friday, September 13, 2013 through Sunday, September 15, 2013
Location: American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401
This class combines painting and quilting. Using acrylic paints the students will create layers of imagery onto the canvas, applying fused fabrics and many layers of thin fluid acrylic paint. A color scheme is chosen and two to three canvases are painted within that color scheme. Then these canvases are cut apart and combined to create a complex composition. The reconstructed canvas is then layered with bating and backing and stitched. These stitched pieces can then be stretched on a frame ready to hang or inserted into a quilt of the same design to create a many texture creation.
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, her many classes, and now as a member of the Experius Academy Advisory Council as they work to develop the art mission for the new Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado – a destination resort for quilting enthusiasts and fiber artists: also host of Katie’s Alegre Retreats.
