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.

HTML Ahoy!! Designing For the Web: MAY/JUNE
Description: Oh CSS... you seem so straightforward, yet you are so difficult. Do you really have to start from scratch with every design? How do you make websites work on different devices? How do you actually position things on a page, anyway... correctly?? HTML Ahoy!  Let's get started on that portfolio, blog or project website you keep meaning to do.  This class provides an overview of the fundamentals of web design through in-class presentations, exercises and customized short projects (based on your goals/intended project for the class). We'll be looking at both form and function in the context of modern HTML5 standards and practices. Already know some code, but want to push yourself? This class will give you the time and space to do that, while also presenting you with some challenges and workarounds. You'll learn how to customize templates for content management systems like WordPress and Drupal, create responsive layouts for mobile devices, and become acquainted with commonly-used frameworks like Bootstrap and jQuery.   Who This Class Is For: This class is ideal for students who want a 'bootcamp'-style course on how to implement their designs effectively and customize existing sites... the curriculum is based on what I feel are the essentials of modern front-end web development.  Like most classes of this type, you'll get out of it what you put in. We'll meet 7 times on Thursday, and we'll also have 7 extra-practice sessions that will be posted the following Sunday night. This extra content is for students who really want to dive into grappling with HTML and CSS.  I've designed this course to revolve around mini-projects that can be customized to meet your individual goals.  Do you want to create an online portfolio? You'll learn skills by building that site. Have an existing website that you want to modify? I'll check it out and create mini-projects just for you.   Topics We'll Cover: Class 1: HTML5 & CSS - Structure, Markup and Webpage Layout Class 2: Designing with Intention - Website Ingredients Class 3: Content Management Systems - Customizing Templates Class 4: Form and Function - Implementing Your Visual Design Class 5: Responsiveness - Designing for Mobile Devices Class 6: Best Practices - Techniques, Debugging Methods, and Browser Weirdness Class 7: Going Further - Overview of Useful Frameworks and JavaScript Libraries Prerequisites: No experience required, but some familiarity with HTML/CSS will be useful. No worries if you don't have any experience though - I have a Quick n Dirty Essentials guide that will get you up to speed. Students must be at least 18 years old. Materials Provided: Computers are available for students who need them. Bring your own laptop if you prefer; make sure Google Chrome is installed. Other than that no other software is required.  What to Bring: Your own computer, if you prefer, and if not, some other way of taking/saving notes. Instructor Biography: Cira Louise Brown is a museum exhibit developer and visual media designer. Last year, she redesigned the Asylum's website and contributed to marketing efforts for the organization. Cira is interested in interpretation, informal education and design: in addition to 8 years experience in the communications field, she has also worked as a teacher, curriculum developer and tutor. Her academic background is in the history and philosophy of science and she recently completed a fellowship with the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments at Harvard University. While there, she was awarded for her work in developing a mobile app for an exhibition. Cira has been a member of the Asylum since 2012, and finds it to be an incredible place to make, learn, work, and play.

Jewelry II: Intermediate Metalsmithing JULY/AUGUST
Description: If you've learned the basics of jewelry-making and want to take them further, this 6-session class is a great way to get guidance on more advanced projects while learning new techniques and tips. Jewelry II is taking on a new format as an Intermediate Guided Projects course, offering flexibility to students who have a project or projects they'd like to tackle with expert guidance. For students who would like a more structured class, projects will be available in making findings (earwires and toggle clasps), fabricating a heavy bezel for any shape of stone, drawing your own tubing, and forming a hollow ring. Precision, patience, and problem-solving will be stressed as students learn traditional methods and tools for layout, advanced soldering, and flawless finishing. Class Goals: By building on the skills introduced in Jewelry I, students will gain enough further knowledge of the tools around them in order to be confident working independently in the Artisan's Asylum jewelry studio (or in their own). Prerequisites: Jewelry I at Artisans Asylum or proof of basic skills by appointment with the instructor. Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: A $20 consumables fee will be payable by students at the first class, plus any materials costs for projects. Silver will be available for purchase for individual projects or guided project kits. Fees are payable by check, cash, or credit card to the instructor. What to Bring: Sketched ideas, and the tools from Jewelry I, and the $20 consumables fee in cash, check or credit card. Students are welcome to bring their own tools and projects in progress. 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. Instructor Biography: Karen Burke (“the other Karen in the jewelry shop”) is a professional jeweler and metalsmith who works and teaches out of the Hot Crafts Studio at Artisan's Asylum. Working primarily in silver, steel, and niobium, she takes a special interest in chains, soldering, metallurgy, repairs, and unusual fabrication challenges.

Metalworking Intensive: JUNE

Description:

In this class, students will learn the basics of how to design and fabricate professional, load-bearing frames out of steel. Students will work together to build an Asylum infrastructure project, to be determined at the start of class. Previous projects have included industrial storage racks, stools, and work tables for the shops of the Asylum. Students will participate in the construction and assembly of the pieces all the way from raw materials to finished product, and learn skills including measuring, layout, manufacturing of jigs, cutting, and MIG welding. Each student will get time to practice using saws, mig welders, and angle grinders over the course of the four-week session. This will be a good introduction to general structural steel construction techniques; each week we'll reinforce the skills learned in previous classes.

Class Goals:

In this class students will learn every skill needed to build a load-bearing steel frame structure. These include layout, cutting, grinding, jigging, and MIG welding. This class is structured such that it can be taken multiple times, allowing you to get more time and instruction on refining your metal fabrication skills with each iteration. 

Prerequisites:

No experience required. Students must be at least 18 years old.

What to Bring:

Materials will be provided by the Asylum.

Required Dress Code:

- Cotton clothing that you don't mind getting dirty (synthetics burn and melt)
- Long sleeves and pants
- Closed-toe shoes
- Something to cover your hair: baseball cap and bandanas work well

During and after his time at Berklee, Rivers worked hard in Boston's jazz clubs, playing several nights a week at the legendary Wally's Café in Boston's South End in the mid to late 1980s. In more recent times, Rivers has performed, recorded, and toured with acclaimed Boston jazz groups such as Salim Washington's Roxbury Blues Aesthetic, Russ Gershon's Either/Orchestra, and the Makanda Project. For the last 7 years, Kurtis has played Sunday nights at the Ramsay/Toy VFW post in Dorchester, a hidden gem in Boston's jazz world. Among Kurtis's bandmates on Sundays has been guitarist Alain Pacowski. Originally from Biarritz, France, Alain has been active in the Boston area jazz scene for decades, and these days splits his time between Boston and New York. The two met at legendary South End jazz spot Wally's when they were both regulars there, and the two have become "musical brothers" after decades of playing together. Looking forward to having these longtime musical friends back, this time together! With bassist TBD.

Introduction to TIG Welding: JUNE
Description: This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld primarily 4130 chromoly steel tubing, as well as different types of materials, shapes, and joints, and will learn how to use a range of supporting equipment (drill press, hole saws, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding. Class Goals: The goal of this class will be to train a student to the point where they can weld on Artisan's Asylum equipment safely and independently. Prerequisites: Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials: Weld helmets, gloves, tungsten electrodes are provided. Students should wear boots or closed-toed shoes as well as a heavy-duty long sleeved shirt, such as flannel or a heavy work shirt. Information for students interested acquiring any equipment of your own will be covered in class. All students are expected to pay an additional $20 to cover materials. If you wear glasses, bring the ones you use for computing or reading, as close-up vision is important. Instructor Biography: In 1993 Skunk picked up a TIG torch, struck an arc, and produced his first weld puddle (oddly enough, it was in titanium). Ever since, he has been on a relentless mission to transmogrify and personify spark plugs, circuit breaker boxes, reamer blades, typewriters, and the like, helping the little creatures he inherently sees in objects transcend their original purpose. Saw blades are reinvented into angelic wings, tin cans devolve into rose pedals, and a broken clarinet gets a second life as a pirate blunderbuss. No outdated or discarded mechanical devices are safe from joining the parade of fantastic creatures, mighty rayguns, and emotional robots, some of which tip the scales at over 300 pounds. Skunk is also the Fleet Admirl and founder of a bicycle chopper gang known as SCUL, and works as a professional custom bike builder for Seven Cycles. For more about Skunk: http://www.skunkadelia.com/ Event Time: Session 1: Monday, June 8, 7:30PM - 9:30PM Session 2: Monday, June 15, 7:30PM - 9:30PM Session 3: Monday, June 22, 7:30PM - 9:30PM Session 4: Monday, June 29, 7:30PM - 9:30PM   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.

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.

Build Your Own Bicycle Frame: SUMMER 2015

Description:

Ever frustrated by riding a bike just not shaped well for you? Ever tempted to try and build your own frame, but not sure where to start? This is the class for you!

In this class, students will learn how to build their own bicycle frame from steel tubes, using lugged construction. You will learn about bicycle geometry and handling, what configurations are typically applied to what kind of riding applications, the basics of fitting a bicycle frame to a rider, and how to set up a bicycle frame jig.

Three optional unsupervised worknights are included in the three-month-long schedule to make sure students without Artisan's Asylum memberships have time to finish their frame by the end of the course. 

You will come out of the class with an unpainted steel roadbike frame set up for fast city riding, commuting, or touring. It will accept caliper brakes and a 25.4mm threadless headset. Extras (handlebars, seat, peddles, and wheels) are totally up to you!

Class Goals:

Students will leave the class having built their own bicycle frame, fitted specifically for them (or for the person of their choice) from steel tubing. Students will learn about fabricating structures made of thin wall tubing, and about brazing techniques.

(Outside the scope of this class, but highly recommended:  Build up your bike. Paint your name on the side. Ride it around. Impress your friends.)

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials:

Materials are provided, covered by a materials fee of $225 included in your registration price. Students may customize their build with a selection of dropouts and braze-ons.

Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine JUNE I

Description:

The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

Successful completion of this course will provide students with the knowledge needed to participate in tool testing for the Artisan’s Asylum Bridgeport mills.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to:

  • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
  • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
  • Understand how to Calculate appropriate Speeds and Feeds for milling operations
  • Securely fixture a small piece of aluminum stock in the vise
  • Identify a variety of end mills and their uses.
  • "Face", or cut a side of, a piece of aluminum stock to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
  • Find the edge of a piece of stock, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.
  • “Zero” the X, Y, and Z axis as they relate to fixtured stock
  • Understand the concept of Backlash and how it relates to using the Bridgeport Mills
  • Know the difference between Climb Milling and Conventional milling
  • Clean and maintain the mill.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required, but Hands-On Metalworking Tools training recommended (see upcoming available dates listed at http://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/#sectionmetalworking). Students must be at least 18 years old.

What to Bring:

Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, short-sleeve shirt. All other materials needed for class will be provided.

Instructor: 

Damian Ward began working with metal when he brought home an oxy-acetylene rig in 2009 and began welding. Arc welding followed soon after, along with melting and casting aluminum. Since joining the Artisan's Asylum, Damian has spent almost all of his free time in the machine shop and has lost track of how many hours he has spent in front of the mill. 

In addition to his metalworking, Damian has worked on a dairy farm, pulled network cable, worked for Lockheed Martin, and practiced criminal law. Damian's favorite Doctor Who companion is Wilfred Mott.

Event Time:

Session 1: Tuesday, May 5, 7:15pm to 9:15pm.

Session 2: Tuesday, May 12, 7:15pm to 9:15pm.


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.
