Fantastic Fibers Miami met in November to finalize the plans for our yarn bombing (YB) event scheduled at MOCA on Friday night, January 26, 2018.
This project ties together our Artist Books – which are awesome and amazing – with MOCA’s after school program for kids and is coordinated by our very own incredible Morgan. Thank You Morgan!
Between now and end of January, we will be working with Morgan and the kids to get them involved in the many facets of fiber arts.
We will teach them to knit and crochet so they can contribute work to the YB on Jan 26.
We will also do pages for artist books with the kids so they can create their own mixed media fiber art pages for their own artist books.
Our artist books and theirs will be displayed in the MOCA Pavilion on January 26 when we YB the pillars.
We have a schedule for working with Morgan and the kids from 3:30 – 5:30 on MWF in December as follows:
Dec 11 Susan Dec 13 Pamela Dec 15 Dana
Dec 18 Susan Dec 20 Pamela Dec 22 Dana
January dates are open and we need committed volunteers: Jan 8, 10, 12 //Jan *17, 19 // Jan 22, 24 (*no kids on the 15th – MLK day)
January 26 is the YB event in conjunction with Jazz at MOCA featuring Troy Roberts on sax – so there will be live music with Troy Roberts on sax and a crowd! YAY!
Please be at MOCA on the 26th at 3:30 to get ready to YB with the kids.
The pillars are quite large so if you or anyone you know can knit or crochet panels to contribute or long scarf-like items to wrap, we will be most grateful. Please let me know! Thank you!
