About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is an urban industrial city located northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles and has a total population of over 77,400 people making it the most densely populated community in New England!

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

Intro to Woodworking: Build a Box JULY/AUGUST

Description:

In this class you'll get familiar with typical woodworking tools and the basics of joinery and finishing techniques by building the foundational shape from which most furniture and structures are constructed - a box! We will be creating a small (roughly 3x6x9") box with lid.

While this is a hands-on class producing a final project that you can take home, there will also be theoretical lecture portions of the class. We will discuss different types of wood, what factors go into your choice of material, and what behaviors of the wood to keep in mind when choosing which tools to use on that wood. We will also discuss different types of joints, and both the structural and aesthetic reasons you may want to use one joint method over another. We will discuss joints that require jigs, however, we will NOT be practicing those joints (such as dovetails, finger joints, biscuits, and pocket screwing). We will also discuss the different finish options, including waxes, oils, stains, varnishes, and paint, and you will get instruction on how to apply a stain or oil finish to your final piece.

Class Goals:

Teach students how to safely use woodworking and assembly tools like table saws, sliding compound miter saws, circular saws, the jointer and planer, layout tools and more, leading to the completion of a wooden box.

Prerequisites:

No experience necessary; students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Wood will be provided; please bring $10 cash to the fist class to cover the cost of materials.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewlery stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratiture in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

Event Time:

Session 1: Tuesday, July 28, 7PM - 10PM

Session 2: Tuesday, August 4, 7PM - 10PM

Session 3: Tuesday, August 11, 7PM - 10PM

Bicycle Maintenance I: MAY

Description:

Learn how to maintain your bicycle! The four classes in this course will cover the following topics: changing a flat tire, introduction to drive systems and rear derailleurs, brake systems overhaul, and introduction to bearings systems and front hub overhaul. Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. This is a basic course, and some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course. However, the course does reach a level of detail at which students who are intending to expand their knowledge of bicycles find it helpful to do some light note-taking during lecture time.

Class Goals:

Students will come out of this course with the ability to tend to the most common maintenance requirements of their bicycle.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age -- otherwise, all you need is the desire to learn!

Materials Provided:

All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.

What to Bring:

Your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don't mind getting black bike grease on.

Instructor Biography:

 

“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

 

 

Event Time:

Session 1: Wednesday, May 6, 7PM - 9PM

Session 2: Wednesday, May 13, 7PM - 9PM

Session 3: Wednesday, May 20, 7PM - 9PM

"The Knight of the Burning Pestle"
Early Theatrical Farce by Francis Beaumont: The Knight of the Burning Pestle

One the earliest farces in the history of English theater, The Knight of the Burning Pestle goes off the rails from the get-go when an actor hiding in the audience breaks through the fourth wall and demands a better play than the one he paid to see. In Francis Beaumont's 1607 comedy, this interrupting merchant even has an apprentice he wants to see in the production. Spread out over five acts, the resulting play within a play parodies just about everything it touches. The name of the play itself is a metaphor for male desire and syphilis, and that's just the beginning of the bawdy humor and sexual innuendo. Theatre@First's production of this classic work by a Shakespeare contemporary is sure to delight with its overlapping storylines and outrageous jokes. See if you can figure out who in the audience at Somerville's Unity Church is the merchant before the show begins.

IP for Makers: What You Should Know to Protect Your Creations (and to protect yourself from other people's IP)

with Kieth Toms

Intellectual Property law has many traps for the unwary that can ensnare makers -- things like "on sale bar," "genericide," or the "work-for-hire" doctrines, to name a few.  Like all traps, however, IP pitfalls can be avoided, but only if you know what to look for.  In this program, Keith Toms, a local IP attorney and member of the Asylum's Advisory Board, will provide a field guide for some of the most common IP pitfalls to help you identify how best to protect your own IP and how to avoid running afoul of other people's rights.

 

 

Keith Toms is a skilled intellectual property attorney with extensive experience helping his clients get the most out of their IP. He makes it a point to understand his clients’ business goals so he can provide incisive advice on how to transform their ideas, creativity, and reputation into a sustainable and protectable business advantage. Keith is an adept IP litigator, with extensive experience enforcing patents, trademarks, and copyrights, both in the federal courts and before administrative bodies, such as the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board. In the past, Keith has litigated patents covering numerous technologies, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, computer programs, and sporting equipment. He has also successfully enforced copyrights against national retail chains, defended a musical artist from a charge of copyright infringement, and has overseen the international policing of important brands.

Intro to Woodworking: Build a Box JUNE/JULY

Description:

In this class you'll get familiar with typical woodworking tools and the basics of joinery and finishing techniques by building the foundational shape from which most furniture and structures are constructed - a box! We will be creating a small (roughly 3x6x9") box with lid.

While this is a hands-on class producing a final project that you can take home, there will also be theoretical lecture portions of the class. We will discuss different types of wood, what factors go into your choice of material, and what behaviors of the wood to keep in mind when choosing which tools to use on that wood. We will also discuss different types of joints, and both the structural and aesthetic reasons you may want to use one joint method over another. We will discuss joints that require jigs, however, we will NOT be practicing those joints (such as dovetails, finger joints, biscuits, and pocket screwing). We will also discuss the different finish options, including waxes, oils, stains, varnishes, and paint, and you will get instruction on how to apply a stain or oil finish to your final piece.

Class Goals:

Teach students how to safely use woodworking and assembly tools like table saws, sliding compound miter saws, circular saws, the jointer and planer, layout tools and more, leading to the completion of a wooden box.

Prerequisites:

No experience necessary; students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Wood will be provided; please bring $10 cash to the fist class to cover the cost of materials.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewlery stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratiture in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

Event Time:

Session 1: Tuesday, June 16, 7PM - 10PM

Session 2: Tuesday, June 23, 7PM - 10PM

Session 3: Tuesday, June 30, 7PM - 10PM

Session 4: Tuesday, July 7, 7PM - 10PM

Session 5: Tuesday, July 14, 7PM - 10PM

Session 6: Tuesday, July 21, 7PM - 10PM (TESTING)

 

REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Jewelry I: Intro to Metalsmithing MAY/JUNE


Description:

The Asylum's recently upgraded Hot Craft area is ready and waiting for new jewelry students! Join us for a fun introductory class that will have you making your own jewelry within hours.

Through this 6-week class you will be introduced to the arcane and secret techniques of making fine jewelry. Little or no experience is required, but by the end you will come away with new skills and with several finished pieces to show off and be proud of. We will work primarily in sterling silver, brass, and copper.

First we start with the basics. You will learn to use the jeweler’s most fundamental hand tools, such as a jeweler’s saw, files, and hammers. Once you learn techniques to create interesting textures and patterns on the surface of metal shapes you cut out, you can let your imagination loose to dream up fanciful designs. You will learn how to make cold connections: joining pieces without the use of heat and solder through methods like riveting. With these new skills you will to make a key fob, pendant, tag, picture frame or decorative tile of your own design.

The second half of the class focuses on learning to solder and finishing techniques. Exercises in soldering lead into the design and fabrication of a piece of jewelry from sterling silver with a cabochon-set stone, such as a ring, pendant, earrings, or bangle. Finishing techniques, like oxidizing and polishing, round out the class lessons.

This class is excellent preparation for Jewelry II and for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. Hands-on work-time is balanced with lessons and there is time to discuss sourcing materials and tools as well as time to interact with other students.

Class Goals:

Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills: Sawing, Filing, Soldering, Polishing, Patina, Riveting, Surface Embellishment, Stone-setting.    Project Goals: Students will complete several sample projects and at least one sterling silver piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon.

Prerequisites:

No experience required; students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials Provided:

An additional materials fee of $35 covers the cost of silver, copper, brass and consumables such as saw blades, solder, etc., all of which will be provided. Payment should be delivered to the instructor on the first day of class by cash or check.

What to Bring:

You need not bring anything beyond the material fee, but it is useful to have a sketchbook for ideas.   If you bring scrap fabric with interesting textures we will use them in the first day of class!  Please wear close-toed shoes and use hair ties to secure long hair. An apron is great for keeping your clothes from destruction but is optional.

Alba's Edge... CD Release....
I have gotten to hear Alba's Edge a number of times now in concert and must admit to being very impressed indeed by the innovative, unbridled, and adventurous approach to new and traditional tunes alike. But its the phenomenal level musical chops and sheer energy they bring to their performances that has most impressed. This will be a CD release so expect lots and lots of great and enthusiastic guests some of which you will already know of!! "Alba's Edge is a tapestry of cultures: the expressive Scottish and original fiddle melodies are woven together with jazz improvisation and harmony, funk bass lines and the rhythms of Latin America to form a cohesive and singular musical experience. Fiddle, piano, drums and bass come together seamlessly in a new sound that BBC Radio Scotland has called "a wonderful concoction". Fresh off a US State Department funded tour of Mexico, Alba's Edge performs and leads clinics across the US and internationally at venues ranging from house concerts to festival stages." The Burren Backroom series launched in October of 2011 but has already created many memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. DeDanann, Dervish, Teada, The Teetotalers, Lunasa, Robbie O'Connell, Sean Tyrrell, the list is building and building, and the radio recordings have become a feature of the weekly Celtic Sojourn radio broadcasts. A series of CDs "Live from the Backroom" is being planned. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. Regularly, there are "openers" artists presenting three or four pieces often in contrast to the "main" offering. This has seen some spectacular new and often unexpected talent being presented on stage. There is a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

Orgone
with Sophistafunk
For over a decade, Orgone has been steaming up nightclubs and drenching the largest music festivals in the country in sweat. Serving a cold-blooded concoction of deep soul, rare funk, and afro-disco with a raw rock star edge that is uniquely LA, Orgones music grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet, and shoves you out onto the dance floor. Tough, sexy, and adventurous, this sonic muscle car shifts through multiple gears from slyly slinky to seismically cinematic, while remaining spacious and uncluttered. eMusic says: Their music is terrifically unfussy, big slabs of grizzled R&B, greasy as fatback, and thick as a very particular kind of smoke. For their searing live performances and warm, dirty homegrown recordings, Orgone has been called One of the heaviest acts weve heard in years by Dusty Groove America.The band is a symbiosis of eight seasoned musicians, at the core of which are keyboardist Dan Hastie and guitarist Sergio Rios who started creating classic sounds as green teens brought together by a mutual affinity for raw soul recordings. Members of Orgone have collaborated/performed with the Roots, Al Green, Gil Scott-Heron, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Breakestra, Thievery Corporation, and the Monophonics. As tight in the studio as they are on stage, as the backing band on Cee Lo Greens multiple Grammy Award-winning track Fool for You and Alicia Keys As I Am album.Up front and unmistakable is Adryon de Leon, Orgones lightning rod, whose hearty, agile vocals are an intoxicating foil to the gritty intensity of the band. Orgone is currently getting their hands dirty in KillionSound, their Fortress of Soulitude, injecting the pure, passionate heat of their live sound into wax. Throughout this year, the band will maintain a strong touring presence while tantalizing crowds with new material from their upcoming album, which will be released into the wild in the Fall of 2014.

“Dan's business advice over the last year has helped me broaden my thinking-- recognizing partnership opportunities, turning a product into a product line, and expanding my marketing reach. He badgers me about my engineer's tendency to focus on technical problems to the detriment of the business, but without being confrontational or irritating. I appreciate his efforts to help me grow from engineer to entrepreneur.”

- Brandon Stafford, Rascal Micro: small computers for art and science

“As a small independent business owner, navigating the road to profitability can be extremely difficult. I'm a woman running a jewelry teaching and tool design company; we are few and far between. Dan's gentle and sage advice is like a good rudder in precarious waters. He offers a range of ideas and possible scenarios to choose, discussing with you the right fit for your business. This experience is much different than anyone I have listened to before. He is gentle, understanding and most of all, Dan understands the artistic mind. Something must be right because for the first time, my business is in the black.”

- Karen Christians, Cleverwerx

Intro to Inkscape for (Laser) Cutting APRIL

Description:

Meet Inkscape - your friendly professional vector graphics editor! Inkscape is an easy software tool to use to prepare your design for cutting on a CNC cutting machine like a laser or vinyl cutter, and you can download it for free on your laptop or home computer.

This class covers Inkscape basics, how to work from photographs and drawings and create files you can export to cut on vinyl and laser cutters.

*Note: This class does not review operations of the Artisan's Asylum laser cutter. For training on that machine, see the Asylasaur training listed on this page.

Class Goals:

Students will:

  • Learn basics of vector graphics and how it differs from raster graphics
  • Be able to apply the Inkscape tools
  • Convert photographs and scanned drawings to vector files

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required.

Students who would like to work on their own laptops should download and install Inkscape prior to class if possible -- assistance will be available in the half-hour before class for those having issues installing the software.

Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Computers with Inkscape installed will be available for any students who need them. Cardstock, vinyl, and laser and vinyl cutting will be provided to cut projects drawn in class, for a small fee payable to the instructor.

What to Bring:

Students should bring $5 materials fee to class to cover the cost of cutting their project. Students who would like to work on their personal laptops should bring them, with Inkscape already downloaded and installed.

Instructor Biographies:

Derek Seabury is a computer scientist, systems architect, and scuba diving instructor who's been juggling vectors for decades. Derek led the Asylum team that built the Asylasaur laser cutter.
