Jeff Black at the me&thee
His words and voice hold down center stage with a craft so deeply in the artistic pocket that it obscures anything outside." - No Depression Thirty years of celebrated live performances and songs covered by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss, Waylon Jennings, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, John Oates, Blackhawk and Dierks Bentley, Jeff Black is recognized as a pioneer in the modern music industry. Boston s WUMB listeners voted Jeff Black as one of the top 100 most important Folk artists of the last 25 years. After critically acclaimed commercial releases on label homes, fan favorite independent releases on his own Lotos Nile Music imprint, song placement on numerous independent films, Black continues to evolve as an influential artist on the who's who list of post-alt troubadours. A master songwriter and performer in the tradition of the great storytellers, his passionate, soul driven live performances of songs from his vast catalog are not to be missed. Folklore is the 10th release from the prolific songwriter. Recorded over a 2 day period in Nashville, Tennessee at Arcana Studios,Jeff Black arms himself with a guitar, harmonica and a banjo to traverse the clay-dust roads that trace the cutting edge of pop culture, delivering a collection of modern folk and acoustic classics. "The tradition of an artist delivering songs that are damn near perfectly crafted and filled with the wisdom of the ages." Jedd Beaudoin | PopMatters

How We Profit from Social Media, Prof. Piskorski, IMD & Swissnex

“Social Strategy: How We Profit From Social Media”

by Professor Mikolaj Jan Piskorski

 

Thursday, September 11th 

Hosted by swissnex Boston, the Consulate of Switzerland*
420 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02138

6:30 to 7:00 p.m.  Drinks, hors d’oeuvres and informal networking

7:00 p.m. Welcome by IMD New England Alumni President, Janet Gilmartin followed by a moment of silence in remembrance of the anniversary of 9/11

7:05 to 8:00 p.m.  Presentation by Professor Piskorski followed by Q&A
8:00 to 9:00 p.m.  Informal networking and book signing by Professor Piskorski**

 

Please join us in welcoming IMD Professor of Strategy and Innovation,Mikolaj Jan Piskorski,*** one of the world’s leading experts on social media, to Boston on Thursday evening, September 11th, when we will be treated to a dynamic presentation entitled “Social Strategy: How We Profit from Social Media”.  Social Media is one of today’s hottest topics, and it affects the personal and professional lives of people of all ages, as well as the strategies of many companies. This event, which includes appetizers, Swiss wine, a book signing, and a chance for informal networking, is hosted by Dr. Felix Moesner, Swiss Consul and CEO of swissnex Boston.

 

Almost no one had heard of social media a decade ago, but websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn now have more than one billion users and account for nearly twenty-five percent of Internet use. Almost overnight, social media seems indispensable to our lives -- from friendship and dating to news and business.

What makes social media so different from traditional media? According to Piskorski, answering that question is the key to making social media work for any business. In A Social Strategy, he provides the most convincing answer yet  -  one backed by original research, data, and case studies. Groundbreaking and important, A Social Strategy provides not only a story- and data-driven explanation for the explosion of social media, but also an invaluable, concrete road map for any company that wants to tap the marketing potential of this remarkable phenomenon.

Drawing on his analysis of proprietary data from social media sites, Piskorski argues the secret of successful sites is that they allow people to fulfill social needs that either can't be met offline or can be met only at much greater cost. This insight provides the key to how companies can leverage social platforms to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Companies need to help people interact with each other, before they will promote products to their friends or help companies in other ways. Done right, a company's social media should benefit both customers and the firm. Piskorski calls this "a social strategy," and he describes how companies such as American Express and Nike have successfully incorporated one into their business.

Jewelry II: Intermediate Metalsmithing NOVEMBER/DECEMBER


       

Description:

The Asylum's recently upgraded Hot Craft area is ready and waiting for new jewelry students!

Through this 5-week class you will be introduced to the arcane and secret techniques of making fine jewelry, as we build on the basics learned in Jewelry I.

Each week, students will learn a new skill, covering stone setting, interior piercing, using the buffing machine, advanced soldering, and flex shaft accessories for polishing. And new this session: chain maille jewelry techniques and introduction to the hydraulic press for hollow form construction. Students will have the opportunity to put these skills into practice fabricating multiple jewelry projects.

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 lab fee of $50 for consumables and sterling silver will be collected at the first class.

What to Bring:

Sketched ideas, and the tools from Jewelry I, and the $50 materials fee in cash or check payable to the instructor. 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 Christians is an educator and maker in the metal arts. She developed the metals program at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, founded Metalwerx in Waltham, a non-profit school for jewelry and the metal arts, and the new jewelry section of the Hot Craft Studio at Artisans Asylum in Somerville. She teaches nationally, lectures around the country, and is published in many professional and technical magazines. She is the author of the book, Making the Most of Your Flex-Shaft. Karen holds a BFA with High Honors from the Massachusetts College of Art. She is currently writing a second book which was successfully funded on Kickstarter this spring, The Jewelry of the Playa: Making, Collecting, and Gifting at Burning Man.

Karen Burke (“the other Karen in the jewelry shop”) sold her first pieces of jewelry at age seven, took a two-decade detour for higher education and the corporate world, and then rediscovered metal. Self-taught for years, and recently a graduate of the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, she now works and teaches out of the Hot Crafts Studio at Artisan's Asylum.

 

Event Time:

Session 1: Thursday, November 13, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Session 2: Thursday, November 20, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Power Poetry

Tweak to Tweet

Enigmas: short poems that make use of irony and compressed language to leave the reader involved in play. During the enigma workshop Power Poetry MeetUp members will practice writingshort, ironic poems with vivid imagery and a sense of playfulness: Twitter, no problem, tweet. IN the enigma workshop Power Poetry MeetUp, members will be asked to embrace two ideas when writing. The first idea is Emerson’s suggestion that each line should be a poem. The second idea is Eliot’s notion that, “meaning [is] necessary to soothe the reader while the poem does its work.” With those two ideas we will have fun with language.

At the close of the workshop the Power Poetry MeetUp community participants will have the opportunity to Tweet their enigmas, share them on Facebook, or pen them on cocktail or coffee shop napkins. Enigmas then could be left in dentists’ offices, on lunch tables, or as small thoughts to consider on commuter trains

Tool Training: Router Table Fundamentals SEPTEMBER

Description:

The Router table is a very versatile tool in any woodshop. It can be used to cut a variety of edge profiles, duplicate patterns, and make dados. This class will cover the safe use of the router table for several common operations. At the end of the class students will have hands on experience flush trimming pieces, profiling edges, and cutting dados and rabbets, and be ready to use the router table independently as members at Artisan's Asylum.

In the first session we will cover the safe operation of the router table. Students will practice different cuts, changing router bits, and making accurate adjustments to the router table. In the second class we will practice using a pattern to make a small hardwood cutting board. The cutting board will utilize tongue and groove joints, pattern routing, and edge profiling. In the third session students will get tested out on the tool, to verify their comfort using the tool without supervision as members of the Asylum or in their own shops.

Class Goals:

At the end of the second class students should have a good understanding of how to safely set up a router table for basic operations. They will know how to change router bits, adjust the router table, and pick the right router bit for a particular cut. The students will have the confidence and skills to add profiles, dados, and other details to their own projects using the router table.

By the end of the three weeks, students will be fully tested out and ready to use the router table without supervision as members at Artisan's Asylum or in their own shops!

Prerequisites:

No prior knowledge is required. Basic woodshop skills are recommended, but not necessary. Students must be at least 18 years of age.
