The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KPFL) has partnered with Frontenac Business Services and Suzy Lamont Photography to create a series of short films highlighting one amazing feature of Frontenac County: its people.
According to a release from the library, there are many advantages to living, working, and playing in a place as beautiful and varied as Frontenac County. The six-week series, Meet Our Makers, will feature a variety of Frontenac musicians, artists, food producers and farmers.
The series will tell the stories of these local makers:
- Hugh Christopher Brown, musician, Wolfe Island Records
- Stefan Duerst, sculptor and studio owner, Godfrey
- Sven Schlegel, Mariclaro sustainable design company, Snow Road Station
- Tammy Watson, Trillium and Maple Woods Handywoman Services, North Frontenac
- Debbie and Dave Fitzerman, David & Sons Fine Condiments, Perth Road
- Sarah Winney, Rise Farm, Central Frontenac
“We are delighted to support KFPL’s Meet Our Makers project that showcases some wonderful makers in Frontenac,” said Anne Prichard, Executive Director, Frontenac Business Services. “There is a nice cross-section of makers — musician, artists, food producer and farmer — in this series.”
Partnering with Suzy Lamont Photography highlights yet another local maker. For over 17 years, Suzy has built her career out of cultivating vivid photos that incite connection and spark dialogue, KFPL said in the release. Together, with her team, she has introduced video production to her already well-established business, which viewers will enjoy through the Meet Our Makers series.
“Creating the Meet Our Makers videos for our team and I was not only a fun working experience but such a wonderful opportunity to meet the incredible talent we have in our community,” Lamont shared.
Meet Our Makers episodes will be released every Thursday starting Jul. 22, 2021. For more information, visit the library’s events page or call your local branch.
