Springboard your creativity by using one of your existing small pieces as the jumping off point to explore the creative possibilities of working in a series.

As a group, we will evaluate all your starting point pieces and discuss their potential for development into a series. Katie will help you to form a plan of your own, considering color, composition, and elements of design, such as contrasts of size, contrast of temperature, contrast of values, layers, engaging the edge, negative space, etc. Katie will discuss how you can start with your existing piece as the inspiration, then simplify the shapes and forms or dive deep for a close up of a portion of it to create a new addition to your series. You can also recreate your existing piece in an entirely new color palette for a different look. The possibilities are endless.

Each piece in your series builds on the previous one. Your series can be creating just one more piece during the workshop or one new piece each day. It is entirely up to you and the speed in which you work. You don’t need to complete a new piece, just a start and an idea would be great.

You can work with whatever method you choose and use techniques that you like to use, whether it is piecing, applique, fusing, or even stitched paintings! (Have you taken Katie’s Stitched Paintings workshop before? This would be the perfect opportunity to work further with the fun process.)

About Katie Pasquini Masopust

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 and abstracts 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 Fortuna, CA 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.
