Mildred inspires local artists in Kitchen Kaleidoscope Sept 12 to Oct 24
Just one of the arrangements you'll see and glean great ideas from at CCAC's Kitchen Kaleidoscope.
he Chilliwack Community Arts Council presents the Chilliwack Spinners and Weavers’ Kitchen Kaleidoscope Exhibition. An exhibition of vibrant creativity, the Chilliwack Spinners and Weavers Guild will feature works revolving around a theme well-known to all, the kitchen! Opening on September 12 with a reception at The Art Room.
Through workshops and study groups the members of the guild have stayed true to Mildred’s original vision. As proud members of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council, the guild has been privileged to be able to participate in many community events over the years and notably at the Arts Council’s upcoming Christmas Craft Market in November.
“Keeping the arts of spinning and weaving in the public eye has allowed us to continue our goal of preserving and passing them along to the next generation,” said the guild’s president, Leslie Alkenbrack. “We are also able to show the community all the wonderful forms that these fiber arts can take. It’s not just Grandma’s spinning and weaving anymore.”
