July Meeting

  • Tue, July 11, 2017
  • 6:00 PM
  • Waldemere Fire Station Upstairs Classroom

Our July meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 11th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Upstairs Classroom at the Waldemere Fire Station.  The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for those who wish to socialize before the meeting begins.  

Leeann Kroetsch is a fiber artist who was awarded an Individual Artist Grant from the Hillsborough Arts Council which allowed her to study with "Master Felters" visiting from Germany and Australia.  She advanced her approach to her craft by integrating the knowledge gained through this study with the techniques she developed through experimentation and play.  Her current focus is on the collaboration between silk fabric, obtained by deconstructing vintages dresses, and collage while felting to give new life to these discarded items and create sustainable art with a renewed purpose.  She has won several awards for her work at high level art festivals across Florida.

Leeann is our speaker at the July meeting and will be telling us about the wet felting techniques which will enable us to work with various types of wool, silk, and specialty fibers, such as bamboo.  You will not want to miss her Felted Flower Workshop being held on Play Day on July 30th.  Here are some pictures of her Felted Flowers:
