Learn to paint on silk with cold water dyes that can be "set" with just an iron. Working on white crepe de chine and with beautiful dyes, you'll create two colorful works of art.

Students will begin by making a "sampler" on a hoop using all the methods of using the dyes. Then you will create a "light catcher" of your own design in bright, vibrant colors.

This is an art form that you may pursue on your own, with a minimum of tools and materials.

Maximum enrollment 12 students.

This program is supported by a grant from the Boxford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

WE WILL NOT BRINGING IN FOOD FOR THIS MEETING....JUST BRING YOURSELF!

The modern movement of eating locally grown and raised seasonal fare has its roots deeply planted in our historic kitchens. “Eating locally” and “eating seasonally” have become fashionable terms. As with most things food trends change and the historical effects of large scale farming and manufacturing on our recipes and food preparation is worth exploring. Join Creative Feast chef Liz Barbour as she explores our modern journey back to the local farm and your great-grand mother’s kitchen to learn why we have moved our food preparation so far from home. Enjoy a cooking demonstration of some historic recipes and learn how we can alter them for today’s shopping and palate. Enjoy a cooking demonstration of two delicious recipes and samples. 

Registration is required.  This event is free and open to the public.

*All meetings take place in Meeting Room 1 at Town Hall/Boxford Town Library(7A Spofford Road, Boxford). For more information or to tell us which recipe you're preparing, please contact Beth Safford (978-887-7323, esafford@boxfordlibrary.org)

Join us for a discussion of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

"An audacious, darkly glittering novel about art, fame, and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization's collapse, from the author of three highly acclaimed previous novels. One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time-from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains-this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it"-- Provided by publisher.

    Contact: Beth Safford   978-887-7323   esafford@boxfordlibrary.org
   

Simonson's dense follow-up to the bestselling Major Pettigrew's Last Stand focuses on gender, class, and social mores in the town of Rye in Sussex, England, at the dawn of World War I. Following the death of her father, who raised her to be intelligent and worldly, writer Beatrice Nash looks forward to tutoring three boys in Latin before she begins her position at school in the fall. Her advocate is the shrewd Agatha Kent, a discreet progressive who's married to John, a senior official in the military. The childless couple love their grown nephews, Hugh Grange, who is destined to be a doctor, and Daniel Bookham, a handsome poet who hopes to move to Paris and start his own journal with a friend. As a woman, Beatrice doesn't have much clout, nearly losing her job to nepotism and being dismissed by her favorite author, her relatives, and her dad's publishing house. Simonson does a great job crafting the novel's world. It's a large book, and the plot takes its time to get going, but the story becomes engaging after Germany invades Belgium and Rye takes in refugees. Simonson's writing is restrained but effective, especially when making quiet revelations. A heartbreaking but satisfying ending seems fitting for a story about the social constructs that unfairly limit people and their potential.

Join us for a discussion of A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Husseini.

*Starred Review* Hosseini's follow-up to his best-selling debut, The Kite Runner (2003) views the plight of Afghanistan during the last half-century through the eyes of two women. Mariam is the illegitimate daughter of a maid and a businessman, who is given away in marriage at 15 to Rasheed, a man three times her age; their union is not a loving one. Laila is born to educated, liberal parents in Kabul the night the Communists take over Afghanistan. Adored by her father but neglected in favor of her older brothers by her mother, Laila finds her true love early on in Tariq, a thoughtful, chivalrous boy who lost a leg in an explosion. But when tensions between the Communists and the mujahideen make the city unsafe, Tariq and his family flee to Pakistan. A devastating tragedy brings Laila to the house of Rasheed and Mariam, where she is forced to make a horrific choice to secure her future. At the heart of the novel is the bond between Mariam and Laila, two very different women brought together by dire circumstances. Unimaginably tragic, Hosseini's magnificent second novel is a sad and beautiful testament to both Afghani suffering and strength. Copyright 2007 Booklist Reviews.
