Wrong date for WAA meeting.

The WAA meeting is May 24th.  not March 24th.  Fritzi Hubert is still our speaker!  Sorry for the confusion.  Please join us on May 24th.

WAA MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 24TH.

Fritzi Hubert will be our speaker at our next WAA meeting on Wednesday, May 24th.

Here are a few words from her about what she will talk about.  Sounds intriguing!

As we choose a specific medium to be our primary mode of expression, how important is it to venture off of 
the main road and explore the shoulders; to learn all, or as many of, the varieties of application for that said medium as possible?

My chosen mode of expression is through making paper by hand. I'll address why this is my choice, the various ways of papermaking, how that plays out when fulfilling a conceptual goal, and what keeps me interested in continuing to explore this same medium for over 35 years now. 

There will also be a brief demonstration of the use of a deckle box to form a fresh sheet of paper. Deckle boxes allow one to make paper with the least amount of time spent preparing, and require very little skill or background.
