In this four-week introduction, students will be introduced to the basics of leather carving and have the opportunity to hone their skills on a small project which they will take all the way from design to completion. Students will select from among a series of projects that could involve extensive carving, such as a wallet or belt. We will go over the fundamental tools and techniques for leather carving and coloring, becoming comfortable with use of the head knife, awl, needles & thread, and dyes.
By the end of this class, students will be comfortable with the fundamental tools and techniques for leather carving and coloring, and will have designed, fabricated, and finished their own original leather project.
No experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age.
Leather, painting/dying materials, and basic tools, all purchaseable from the instructor. Basic tools from the Intro to Leatherworking class can be used.
Full tooling and materials are likely to cost between $85 and $100 (the head knife represent half of that), but students will keep any purchased tools at the end of class for use on further projects. Students are encouraged to bring a notebook and pencil to class for taking notes.
Full materials list for those who have their own tools, or are interested in purchasing independently: head knife, awl, needles, thread, dye, belt buckle/hardware, leather, jeweler's rouge, plain brown paper, paint brushes, a notebook, and a cloth ruler.

Prioritizing Life and Business Many of us, at some point or another, have lost our way, forgetting what really makes us tick…what really drives us…what really gets us up in the morning. We lose our own identity, making it difficult to stay true to ourselves; and this directly impacts our ability to make decisions, our relationships and our ability to live a life that is most authentic to ourselves. Yet, living authentically is the ultimate key to happiness. In this month's community meeting, multi-passionate entrepreneur, Brett Blumenthal, will discuss how to get back to your authentic self so you can live your best life.
She has 20 years of experience in wellness promotion and almost 10 years experience in management consulting; including branding, change management, and training strategy and development for Fortune 100 companies. Brett received her MBA from Johnson at Cornell University, where she graduated as a Park Fellow; she also earned her bachelors degree from Cornell University. She is certified by WELCOA (Wellness Council of America) and AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America).

At Gandara we know there are no "quick fixes" in our mission. Mental health, recovery, and child welfare take time, dedication, and patience.
Very often in our work we meet a child or family with a need so immediate, so obvious, that there is no question. Often, these basic needs are not covered by our state contracts. The Gandara Family Fund exisits to help families and children overcome basic needs so they can focus on the work they are doing for themselves, their families, and our community.
Join us! Raise at least $20 to be a "quick fix" for the most vulnerable children and families in our neighborhoods. Every participant will get a quality t-shirt listing all our sponsors, a wrist band commemorating the day, and a fun filled experience for your whole family.

The Southeastern Massachusetts Readiness Center (SEMARC) is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring a one- day workshop for educators who serve the Commonwealth’s children, ages Birth through Grade 3. We encourage teams, consisting of 5-8 members to participate. Teams may include: family childcare providers, private child care centers, public/ private Headstart preschool providers, PK-12 educators/ administrators, librarians, police, fire, nurses, pediatricians, social service providers, related service providers, early interventionists, and higher education faculty.
A keynote speaker will introduce the essential competencies across the cognitive, social emotional, linguistic, and physical domains that should be demonstrated by the youngest citizens from birth throughout grade 3, in order to ensure they are on a pathway to success. In addition, the keynote will highlight how these skills and dispositions support the Massachusetts definition of College and Career Readiness, approved by the Board of Higher Education and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in 2013.
During facilitated break- out sessions, teams will examine the essential competencies and asses how they currently embed these experiences throughout their daily practices. Teams will identify their emergent community gaps and formulate a community action plan, designed to mitigate them.
Teams will have the opportunity to participate in future community work groups, sponsored by SEMARC, through Early Learning Challenge Grant funds, which will meet bi-annually, to examine these domains in greater depth. Stipends, provided on a first- come first serve basis, will be provided to community based teams who would like to continue their work.

SAVE THE DATE! Kenny Selcer Band plays a sizzling blend of Americana, folk, rock, blues, roots, reggae, and everything in between - original music from Kenny's CDs and future CDs! and choice covers. And, always some surprises at each performance. About Kenny Selcer Band: www.kennyselcer.com The band is Kenny Selcer, vocals and acoustic guitar Liz Buchanan, vocals, guitar, percussion Phil Punch, congas, drums and Stephen L Gilligan, vocals and bass. Band bios here: http://www.kennyselcer.com/kenny-selcer-band.html The band brings together seasoned music pros from all kinds of different music genres to create something new. About The Band: "They are a warm, eclectic band who plays a wide range of material: folk rock, blues, country and reggae. The stunning guitar work and intimate vocals(3 part harmonies!) keep audiences asking for more. They play known classics with original spice, as well as originals that will get you tapping your feet and singing along." About Kenny: “Through candid storytelling and inspired guitar play, Kenny Selcer delivers a stimulating mind-body listening experience. Engaging tales of relationship pain, frustration, hope and desire will provoke listeners to revisit thoughts of their own relationships. Listeners will not, however, find themselves stewing in self-reflection for very long as Selcer's lively guitar licks send them truckin' on down the road to relationship renewal.” - Dennis Carlan, Lyric Tree Publishing About Kenny's Latest CD, Don't Forget About Me: "The entire work is one warm vibe that you ride through on the strength of Selcer’s pleasant, mellifluous vocal." - Bill Copeland “Imagine David Bromberg, Jackson Browne, early Donovan, Steve Forbert, Tom Petty, and Paul Simon percolating in ...a room. That paints a clearer picture of Kenny’s latest material. Further accented by his own copyright stamp the results are pure pleasure from the opening tune (the title cut) to the finale (which by the way ends with the reprise).” – Craig Fenton, Jefferson Airplane/Starship biographer “Selcer produces well-crafted songs with a variety of deliveries that makes the album an unexpected listening experience.” – Austindaze.com “This is a wonderful CD! It is an excellent collection of well-crafted songs, sensitively presented. Your voice shines, your guitar-playing is perfection, the arrangements are excellent, whether you are playing & singing alone or presenting a song with one or more of your talented accompanists. I’ve enjoyed the album on a first listen, and even more on a second listen. It’s a very hopeful collection of pieces. The songs go down easily – excellent melodies and chord choices.” Ellen Schmidt, musician, producer, promoter
