Join local Fiber Artist, Sooo-z Mastropietro, for an intuitive fiber-based knitting workshop inspired by our current show! Learn how to knit, or just take those needles out for a spin, with this quick knit utilitarian colorful bag. Students will learn the basic knit and purl stitches using size 15 needles for a healthy-paced project with instant gratification. Walk away with a personal and inspired bag perfect for those weekend trips to Compo beach, or when you just have a lot to carry!
Teaching Artist Sooo-z Mastropietro is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and holds a BFA in Fashion Design and Textile Design. Originally from the Hudson Valley, this serene setting mirthfully set the stage for an untapped eruption of color, clothing, and creativity. Her inauguration as an Art Director in Interiors cultivated her conception, “Mastropiece,” a silk painting business to create and sell her own wearable and decorative designs that infused art with utilitarian purpose. She has continued to develop collections in oil, illustrations of estates, and a line of stationery featuring 'Socialites'. Other endeavors include community sculptural projects, curating, judging art shows, artist in residences, teaching, and classical bass playing. Her current work under the moniker, Knitiot Savant, is a unique fiber art form utilizing a triumph of fabric tubes, nuggets, and shreds in which she has shown all over the country in juried shows and has appeared internationally in publications.
Join us after the Curator's Talk and Panel Discussion for three-hours of energetic and colorful creating, giving knitting a modern twist!
