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.

Syrian Summer Vegetables with Samah Tayara

Syrian food is rich with with herbs, vegetables, thick yogurts, spices, and aromatic, smoky meats -- all wrapped or scooped up in airy layers of lavash bread. It is a cuisine of intense flavor and deep tradition.  

In this class, Somerville resident Samah Tyara, who immigrated just one year ago from Homs, and her son Sam, will teach you how to make classic Syrian summer dishes. While cooking, they will also talk to you about their home country’s culture and food. Together we will make a Syrian ratatouille called Kawaj, which includes eggplant, pepper, squash, tomatoes, and ground beef seasoned with the classic Syrian pepper Flefleh Hamra. Next, to temper this slightly fiery summer reduction, we will make Mutabal, a burnt eggplant and yogurt side dish. Last, we will make aromatic green beans sauteed in garlic, and a classic Syrians spice blend called Kuzbara

Once we are done chopping and mixing, we will sit down to our feast at a table laden with lavash, herbs, and other delightful accompaniments. Come to this class to enjoy homecooking that celebrates the peak of the season.

Niamh Dunne and Sean Graham, with piper Mickey Dunne, and just added, Cat and the Moon
With two members of the dynamic Beoga on stage along with Piping legend Micky Dunne and the new Boston Sensation, Cat in the Moon on stage, this will be a night to remember. Niamh Dunne is a highly accomplished singer, fiddler and composer from Co. Limerick, and has just released her debut solo song album, "Portraits". With master guitar player and producer Sean Og Graham, and a guest performance from Mickey Dunne, Niamh's father and world renowned piper, this is a one off performance not to be missed. Adding in the new band Cat and the Moon who are fast becoming a Boston sensation and we have an amazingly dynamic and far ranging evening of Celtic music and song. Personally, I think this will be a highlight night in the series, and as I regard Fall as a new year in New England, will kick off our new season with a bang! The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. 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. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. Tickets are $23 in advance, with 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!

"Ways to Live Forever" movie screening

Join us for a special screening of the British feature film, Ways To Live Forever. Starring Robbie Kay (ABC's Once Upon a Time, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Ella Purnell (Maleficent), Alex Etel (The Water Horse, Millions), Ben Chaplin (The Truth About Cats & Dogs), Greta Scachi (The Player, Emma), and Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones, the Harry Potter series).

Like most inquisitive boys, 12-year old Sam wants to know about UFOs, horror movies, ghosts, and girls. Sam also has leukemia, and although the adults in his life don't want him to dwell on it, Sam wants to know everything about his disease and death, a possibility he might face. Together with his best friend, Felix, he embarks on a "scientific investigation" with questions, observations, evidence, reflections, and lists of all the things he wants to do someday -- like breaking a world record, flying in a blimp, kissing a girl for the first time, and experiencing what it's like to be a teenager. In this poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale, Sam and his family face the immensity of an uncertain future with love, humor, and a touch of the unexpected.

MARY COUGHLAN Live @ The Burren
A lot has been written and a lot has been said, whispered, recounted, alleged, supposed and presumed. It's all quite forgotten now and the songs remain the same, they remain a testament to Mary Coughlan's seemingly timeless and endless talent. Her smoky, bluesy, boozy drawl has always been a seduction, no matter what the subject. The vocal marrying of sardonic wit, visceral rage, orgiastic between the sheets passion, the tenderest of sorrowful regrets; this is Mary's talent. Regardless of the elements she chooses to manipulate with flawless ease, Mary's voice has always been an unforeseen, sudden seduction. This is why she is so loved. Throughout the over 25 years of her quite extraordinary recording career Mary has drawn heavily from her legendary heroes; Billie Holiday's grievous, teary outpourings, the husky flirtations of Peggy Lee, Van Morrison's soulful wails, the defiant chanteusery of Edith Piaf. All are present and correct in her delivery. Even so, Mary, with her naked honesty makes every song her own; they belong to her and nobody else. Who else could possibly present "Double Cross" or "Magdalen Laundry" or "The Ice Cream Man" with such dedication and effortless zeal? The casual listener may know something of "Ancient Rain", "Invisible To You" or maybe "Man Of The World". These may well be among the greatest of Mary's many great hits, however there is so much more to the story. How about an entire double album dedicated to her love of Billie Holiday. Billie died at 44, the age at which Mary performed songs from the album to sold-out venues and enraptured audiences at her "Lady Sings The Blues" shows staged in Dublin and London in 2001. How about "Live In Galway", Mary's triumphant, if anxious, return from the brink to the stage in 1995. At the time she pleaded the venue to host the gig, having to repent for previously letting them down a little too frequently. She had become the "no-show". Mary sold out 8 gigs in a row. How about "Live At The Basement". Recorded in Sydney among an intimate audience in 2003, this is the ultimate in down and dirty jazz club renditions. It's hard to imagine a more succinct demonstration of both the raw and refined nature of Mary's talents. The stage is where Mary survives. From a small square footage of venue real estate in front of a handful or a thousand or ten thousand people, she emotes, purges, atones, reminisces, eulogises and laments. That is why there is a full disc of live recordings included in this collection, because this is the very best of Mary Coughlan and you can't hear the very best until you've heard her story recited in every note.

Glass 101 - Pendants SEPTEMBER

Description:

Whether your interest is to make a single pendant you can take home and wear to show off your craftsmanship or to learn about the properties of a material as it changes phase from solid to liquid and back again, this is the class you should take.

We will learn about safe flame working behaviors as we use table-mounted lampworking torches to create a molten gather of liquid glass, shape it into an aesthetically pleasing shape, pull a loop out of the body of the pendant, and use the annealing oven to relieve internal stress in the glass as it cools.

We will begin conversations about tools, glass properties, and types of glass that will establish a solid foundation for any type of glass work you may find yourself dreaming about for the future. Many of the skills in this class serve as an introduction to marble making and sculptural glass work as well, but the primary goal of this class is to give you control over molten fluids and confidence near the flame.

Class Goals:

This class is designed so any person of any skill level can learn something new. Students will come out of class with one or more completed glass pendants of their own.

Prerequisites:

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

Materials Provided:

The $15 materials fee covers the cost of materials and wear on the tools. All materials and tools will be provided by the instructor and the Asylum.

What to Bring:

$15 materials fee, payable to the instructor by cash or check and water in a sealable container. Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing made of natural materials.

Instructor Biography:


This class is taught by Joanne and Michael Soroka. Joanne has been melting glass for over a decade and was trained by well known Venetian lamp workers and some of the up and coming American glass rock stars of today. She is unstoppable. Her son, Michael, has several years of experience working with glass and has helped make a working invisible glass submarine.

 

Event Time:

Monday, September 8, 6:45-9:15pm


REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than three days 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.

An Evening With Bruce Cockburn

Great Northeast Productions, Inc. will present legendary Canadian icon, Zen songwriter, guitarist, singer, poet, activist and psalmist Bruce Cockburn in concert on Saturday, November 1 at the historic, 100-year-old Somerville Theatre. This will be Cockburn's first Boston concert in three years and also his only New England appearance this season. 

Bruce Cockburn has always been a restless spirit. Over the course of four decades, the celebrated Canadian artist has travelled to the corners of the earth out of humanitarian concerns—often to trouble spots experiencing events that have led to some of his most memorable songs. Going up against chaos, even if it involves grave risks, can be necessary to get closer to the truth.

Cockburn's new memoir, Rumours of Glory will be released by Harper Collins worldwide on November 4. In addition, an hour-long video documentary, Pacing The Cage, an intimate look at Bruce Cockburn, his life and his music, was made available in June, 2013. Cockburn's most recent CD, Small Source of Comfort--his 31st album--released in 2011, garnered "Contemporary Album of the Year" and "Contemporary Singer of the Year" from the Canadian Folk Music Awards as well as a Juno award for "Top Roots & Traditional Album of the Year Solo."

“Fans of Bruce Cockburn’s extraordinary acoustic fingerpicking will be thrilled with Small Source of Comfort, his 31st studio album. Cockburn’s shimmering arpeggios, syncopated riffs, and hypnotic single-note lines blend elements of Mississippi John Hurt, Jerry Garcia, Leo Kottke, and Brazilian greats Luiz Bonfa and Oscar Castro-Neves, yet remain entirely his own.” wrote Premier Guitar Magazine.

Cockburn has also won 13 Juno Awards and has been nominated for 32; he received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012 from the Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers.

If you already know what you want to build and how you want to build it, and you just want to learn how to safely use the basic tools you need (or just need a refresher), this Tool Training session is for you! This class covers the following basic woodworking saws and tools, teaching correct use of the hand drill, reciprocating saw, circular saw, jig saw, panel saw, scroll saw, drill press, and belt sander.

The first week is basic training; the second week, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their competency and get signed off on the tools. Students will be authorized to use the tools independently as members at Artisan's Asylum after successful completion of the testing portion.

Please note that this Tool Training does not provide significant practice with each tool, nor discuss any advanced techniques. To learn how to use woodshop tools at anything other than an introductory level, please take a look at the long-form classes available on out Current Class Offerings page.

Class Goals:

By the end of the tool training session, students will be comfortable with the operation of the hand drill, reciprocating saw, circular saw, jig saw, panel saw, scroll saw, drill press, and belt sander.

After passing the proficiency test, they will be able to use all of the tools in this group as a member in our workspace.

Prerequisites:

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

Materials Provided:

All practice materials will be provided by Artisan's Asylum.

What to Bring/Wear:

Students should wear shop appropriate clothes - closed-toe shoes, no dangly jewelry or straps, and long hair should be tied back.

Event Time:

2-week training & testing cycles are available on Sundays,10:30am-1:30pm. Please see the ticket types above for the specific dates and times currently available.

Instructors:

Lena Sherbakov is a mathematician and neuroscientist, maker and artist, and long-time Artisan's Asylum member and volunteer.


Josh Beckmann owns Somerville Made, a small design and fabrication shop in Union Square Somerville. His work often incorporates welded steel and computer controlled cutting. He also teaches wood working to children at a local arts center.

 

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. Her personal projects tend to range from jewlery stands to boxes to small furniture, 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.

Intro to Photoshop One-day Workshop

This class aims to introduce new photographers with digital cameras to Photoshop. Photoshop is an extensive program which offers thousands of tools to edit, manipulate, and enhance photographs. We will introduce students to that potential by walking them through the basic tools that make up the program from shooting to uploading, resizing, then preparing images for the web. This course will include methods and tools like sharpening, color correcting, spot removal, layer editing and more. The class will lay a strong foundation for Photoshop and ensure the program is learned correctly from square one.

Instructor Alejandra-Carles Tolra
