Katie Pasquini Masopust

"Artful Log Cabins (Line and Grid)"

Two Day Workshop: Wednesday June 7- Thursday June 8

The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.

Betty Busby

"An Artistic Journey - the Unseen"

Two Day Workshop: Saturday October 14 & Sunday October 15

Speaker: Membership Meeting, Monday, October 16th at Bentley University in the La Cava Conference Center at 7:00

Multi-Media Fiber Art workshop
For several years Betty Busby been exploring the use of various non-woven materials in her fiber art. They have been a wonderful addition to traditional fabrics, extending the range of expression that can be achieved.
The class will include samples of different types of non woven materials, ways to produce images with them, and methods to incorporate them to extend the range of expression that can be achieved with traditional fabrics. In addition, she has developed new ways of painting fabrics.  Students will make samples using her methods and materials, and combine them with the non-wovens as desired.
She will also assist students with making their own designs and patterns. The aim of the class is to give each student many exciting ideas to experiment with.
Sample size pieces of the non-wovens she uses and one yard of silk habotai are provided in the class.  Additional materials will be available to purchase if supply allows.  There will be a materials fee of approximately $20 per person.
