The Lyceum's Coptic Book Binding Workshop May 8th, 9th 4:00pm

The Lyceum's second bookbinding workshop with the talented Allie Thompson. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A 2 SESSION WORKSHOP, MUST BE AVAILABLE BOTH MAY 8TH AND 9TH 4:00-5:00PM TO WALK AWAY WITH FINISHED BOOK!

The structure we will learn dates back to the 2nd century CE and was first used to connect folded sheets of papyrus. It became associated with early Christians and spread from Coptic Egypt to the west along with the religion. Other binding methods slowly replaced it in Europe as book materials changed, but Coptic binding is enjoying a resurgence of popularity among modern binders. The pages and covers are attached by sewing alone, which makes the binding flexible, strong and attractive.

Paint The White Mountains With Laureen Hylka Wondolowski

Painting on location can be overwhelming. In this workshop, you will learn how to gather information and create on location sketches. You will simplify your intent for the painting, by drawing quick thumbnail sketches. These will be used as a map for your painting. You will continue by blocking in value masses, with a focus on design. By working within those masses and paying close attention to the color temperature shifts, you will form a solid groundwork for the painting. Attention to subtle nuances will finalize the painting. We will discuss how the thumbnail, plein air sketch, and digital images could be used as information for a finished studio painting. This is a one or two day event...you decide. Students responsible to bring their own supplies *materials list given once registered. Cost $60.00 per day (can opt for one or both of the days May 6th and/or 7th) Deadline sign up by May 1st (3 student Min / 6 Max) Don't miss the April 29th 1pm FREE Introduction to Plein Air Painting Seminar, where you be introduced to this timeless activity.

Farm to Table Dinner at The Comunity School

 

From 5:30 on, we at The Community School will serve a tantalizing meal of locally-sourced deliciousness, all highlighting the lightness and brightness and greenness of spring!  

Our menu includes:
Light little potato pancakes, served with slivers of house-cured salmon with pickled chives and dill and smoked creme fraiche. You'll try Mario Batali-inspired asparagus Milanese with speck: steamed asparagus adorned with a vinaigrette and shaved speck (lovely cured ham).  Tiny carrot frittelle, the Italian word for fritters, are served atop a pool of creamy onion soubise.  You will want to lick the plate!

Our entrees feature both beef tacos and shredded goose ramen.  The beef tacos use tenderly marinated cuts which are bold in grass-fed flavor and silken in texture.  Winter pickles and fresh spring spinach and arugula round off each mouthful as you lift your corn tortilla-wrapped package to your mouth.  Goose ramen gives pride of place to slow roasted South Tamworth-raised goose shredded on a mound of homemade ramen noodles in a pool of garlicky broth green with fresh ramps.  A boiled duck egg is a creamy addition to the lot of it.

Dessert is the highlight for many.  My grandmother's recipe for daffodil cake gets personalized in cupcake form, combining angel food cake folded with sponge cake and topped with fluffy lemony sorrel-flecked frosting.  Our chickens are laying like crazy, so we're putting their bounty to delectable use in creme brûlée, topped with beautifully pink, perfectly sugared  caramelized rhubarb.

All of this, plus a variety of beverages, can be yours for $50 per person. 

To reserve a seat or a table for you and your posse, please respond off board or call The Community School at 323-7000.  We'd love to feed you!
