Kicking off the month of February, 32 members, including eight from the provisional class, were inspired by the workshop on Botanical Arts: Artistic Crafts presented by Florence Leyssène. Sharing her wealth of creative experience, dozens of hats, masks, and jewelry examples were on display, including a few in progress to show detailed structure of these accessories. With a demonstration of techniques, discussion of plant material and components, and books of images she assembled, Florence provided a comprehensive, engaging lesson for creating these wearable crafts. Anticipate lots of participation in upcoming monthly competitions!
