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.

Wheelbuilding: NOVEMBER

Description:

Students in the course will calculate spoke lengths and choose components, lace their own wheel, learn both radial and lateral wheel truing as well as tensioning and centering. Students will gain an understanding of the basic steps in wheelbuilding and be provided the skillset which can be developed into a rare and sought-after bicycle craft after completing the course. Students will be making calculations and building their wheels themselves, after a short instruction and demonstration. Although this is an advanced course, some bicycle wheel types may be outside of the scope of the course. Each student must consult with the instructor on their choice of build before purchasing their wheel's components.

Class Goals:

Students will leave the course with the experience necessary to continue wheelbuilding and develop their experience into artisanship should they choose to.

Prerequisites:

This course is designed for students who have completed either Advance Bicycle Maintenance or Bicycle Maintenance II. Others with bicycle maintenance experience are welcome as well, but with permission of the instructor. This course is not geared toward someone who is just beginning to learn about their bicycle. All students must be at least 18 years of age.

What to Bring:

Students will need to bring their selected rim, and rear hub, or hubset with them to the first class. They should contact the instructor directly at seven.liberated@gmail.com for advice on their choice if necessary. Students will be expected to purchase/order the remaining components during the first week of class.

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.

Session 1: Thursday, October 30, 7PM - 9PM

Session 2: Thursday, November 6, 7PM - 9PM

Session 3: Thursday, November 13, 7PM - 9PM

Stephen Kellogg - Ben Fields
This event is all ages
Stephen Kellogg


Stephen Kellogg has performed more than 1500 concerts in the last decade or so. Most recently he's traveled Europe with Josh Ritter and landed on an aircraft carrier in the middle east to perform for the Armed Forces. Though his songs are in the tradition of classic artists like Jackson Browne and John Prine, he's been called "the best live act you've never seen" by CBS Radio. Additionally, Stephen Kellogg has well publicized affection for his role as father to four daughters and husband to a high school sweetheart which would almost be enough to make you not like the guy if he wasn't so, well...likable. For an evening of uplifting songs about life, love and the pursuit (and sometimes failure) of obtaining happiness, catch Kellogg on this intimate tour. He will be performing with an acoustic trio and doing different songs each night spanning the last 10 years of his career.

The High Kings - Second Show Added...
First show sold out in 10 minutes. This one will go too, rapidly. As the Burren Backroom Series continues to go from strength to strength, many touring groups are electing to use its warm, intimate confines as opposed to bigger theaters. Such is the case with The High Kings who regularly play theaters the size of the Schubert when coming through Boston. Well, this should be a wonderful night of singing and will sell out rapidly. Simple as that. Buy your tickets immediately. 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!

Sculptural Metalworking: SEPTEMBER

Description:

This is a class specifically geared as an introduction to the wonderful world of sculptural metalworking and welding. Students will learn how to use a MIG welder and various supporting tools (clamps, grinders, sanders, etc.) to produce sculptural art pieces of their own design. Kit and instructor-directed projects are also available if students would like a less independent class experience.

Class Goals:

The goals of this class will be to encourage students to think of metalworking as a new and expansive creative outlet, and to train students to the point where they can weld on Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Students will bring a flannel shirt, leather gloves and safety glasses to class. Students will purchase raw materials from the instructor as needed for their projects.

Instructor Biography:



Ecco is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She's a local artist with a passion for steel, specializing in creating wearable metal accessories (like the horns in her picture, or a set of wings for her back) and designing static and kinetic sculptures. Her previous work has included flapping pterodactyls, moth sculptures, a rideable dragon, and several other pieces.

Introduction to Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems: FALL 2014

Description:

Have you ever wanted to design mechanisms that move really heavy or large things simply and easily? Do you have any applications that call for controlled linear motion? Are you frustrated with an engineering education that left out a practical grounding in fluid power? Come to Artisan's Asylum in February and learn how to design and assemble pneumatic and hydraulic systems!

Most engineers, designers and hobbyists are familiar with electric motors and their limitations. As a rule, motors tend to spin too quickly for most applications without substantial gearing, they tend to be fairly weak for their size, and they can be very complicated to control for amateurs. They're great for small, simple projects, but stop being as useful when projects start scaling up in size. Pneumatic and hydraulic systems pick up where electric motors leave off!

Pneumatic (air-powered) and hydraulic (liquid-powered) power transmission systems can simply and easily generate hundreds, to thousands, to tens of thousands of pounds of force instantaneously, and hold those forces indefinitely. They can be incredibly easy to assemble (once you know what parts to order), they're easy to control with simple relay circuits, and they're a breeze to design compared to electric systems. The big challenges involved in making use of them are knowing enough about them to design and assemble them safely, getting to know the symbolic language in which their circuits are drawn, knowing where to source components, and getting experience by making enough circuits to get used to the process.

This class will introduce students to the theory, design, and practical assembly of pneumatic and hydraulic circuits. Students will be taught the underlying principles behind each style of power transmission, will get to assemble several different circuits of each type of power transmission, will get to design their own circuits, and will go through the process of sourcing components from fluid power vendors.

Note: This class is offered as a full 8-course introduction to fluid power systems, but students can choose to participate in either pneumatics or hydraulics individually.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class will be to give students a robust introduction to hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Students should be able to assemble hydraulic and pneumatic systems given standard schematics, and should be able to design basic fluid power systems independently by the end of the class.

Prerequisites:

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

Materials Provided:

All hydraulic and pneumatic system components will be provided as class items, and will remain at Artisan's Asylum.

What to Bring:

Students should wear clothing appropriate for a shop environment. On days where the class works with hydraulic systems, students should expect to get hydraulic oil on their clothes and skin. Students should wear work clothing they are willing to throw away at the end of class in case it gets too oily.

Instructor Biography:

Gui Cavalcanti is the co-founder and President of Artisan's Asylum. Currently, he's leading the mechanical design of Stompy, a 4,000 pound, 18-foot-wide, 10-foot-tall, 6-legged hydraulic walking robot that seats two, developed by Project Hexapod (a company he cofounded with James Whong and Dan Cody). He worked as a robotics engineer and systems integrator at Boston Dynamics, working on cutting edge mechanical design and systems integration for highly dynamic legged robots like BigDog, AlphaDog, and PETMAN. He was the Systems Integrator for the LS3 project, coordinating the joint engineering and development of multiple subcontractors and engineers. Over the course of his career he has also developed the mechanical systems for a robotic tuna, several robotic snakes, an ornithopter, and other robotic animals.


Event Time:

Session 1: Wednesday, September 3, 7:00PM - 9:30PM (Introduction to Pneumatics)

Session 2: Wednesday, September 10, 7:00PM - 9:30PM (Pneumatics Class 1)
