ELF: The Musical

ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.

The New York Times says that ELF is “SPLASHY, PEPPY, SUGAR-SPRINKLED HOLIDAY ENTERTAINMENT!” USA Today calls ELF, “ENDEARINGLY GOOFY!” Variety proclaims, “ELF is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!”

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).

2014 Breathe Deep for Cystic Fibrosis

NEW FOR 2014 - Buy your tickets by 8/1/14 and you will be entered to win a 5-night stay all-inclusive stay for two in the Dominican Republic!  Visit this page for more details: http://www.cflf.org/news/breathe-deep-boston

Please note: Tickets will NOT be available at the door.

We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Breathe Deep for CF event in Boston!

Take a Deep Breath and Appreciate Your Lungs. Then  …

Come down to the Harpoon Beer Hall in the Boston Seaport District on October 16th for drinks, socializing, and supporting a great cause: helping the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation help those living with Cystic Fibrosis to live longer, stronger lives.  

CF is one of the most common life-shortening hereditary diseases. It is a progressive, degenerative disease with no known cure. Most individuals with CF die young, many in their 20’s and 30’s from lung failure.  Recent advances are enabling a whole new population of adults with CF, who must become responsible for their own survival.  Maintaining an active lifestyle is one of the best known ways for someone living with CF to not only maintain, but actually improve their health.  While healthy individuals often participate in physical recreation “just for fun”, for these individuals, it can be the difference between life and death, but the cost of activities can be the barrier to entry. 

Support and inspire CF individuals to fight the odds by helping us raise money for CFLF Recreation Grants. These grants will fund gym memberships, skiing/snowboarding lessons, horseback riding, gymnastics, and tons of other activities for people living with CF, offering them fun and free ways to improve their health and self-confidence through physical activity.

In joining us on October 16th, $60 will not only provide you with delicious beer and appetizers, but also the knowledge that you’re helping these individuals live longer, stronger, more enjoyable lives.  There will also be door prizes and a silent auction for you to help this cause.  It's guaranteed to be a fun and unforgettable evening for everyone! 

AUCTION ITEMS & DOOR PRIZES WILL INCLUDE:


-IPAD MINI 

- AND MUCH MORE...

Brian Callanan, the Founder and Director of CFLF, was diagnosed at birth with CF and was expected to live only to age 8. Having turned 38 this year, and surpassing the median life expecancy, Brian is healthier than ever! Instead of surrendering to the illness, he embraced it—hiking, biking, and swimming his way to amazing lung scores and an impressive, ever-improving projected lifespan. Help him to help others achieve the same.

To date, nearly 500 people with CF have been helped with Recreation Grants totaling over $250,000 in direct assistance. Let’s see if we can raise the funds to help hundreds more!

See you there!

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.

Glass 100 - Curiosity: Intro to Flameworking SEPTEMBER

 

Description:

Learn the basics of flameworking. The thrill of sticking a rod of glass into an open flame and working with the resulting molten glass is mesmerizing. In this one-night hands-on class we will cover the basics of flameworking. As well as safety, tools and equipment, we will do a lot of melting, stretching and winding of molten glass working in the flame of a torch. Rather than focusing on any particular type of glass item, students will get a taste of the processes for making pendants, beads, small sculpture, and more.

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 items 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.

Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine AUGUST

Description:

The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

Successful completion of this course will qualify students to use the Artisan's Asylum Bridgeport mills independently as member.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to:

  • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
  • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
  • "True" the mill table using a dial indicator
  • Attach a vise to the mill table, and identify the uses of different fixturing accessories. 
  • Securely clamp a small aluminum block.
  • Identify a variety of mill bits and their uses.
  • "Face", or cut a side of, an aluminum block to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
  • Find the edge of a clamped workpiece, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.

Turkish Cuisine II - Summer Seafoods and Sides

From the sun-baked Mediterranean coast to her exotic eastern borders, Turkey boasts a rich and varied culture and cuisine (especially the cuisine!) Join authentic Turk Selma and global food junkie Adam for an afternoon sampling the luscious summer seafood of this culinary hot spot. Selma will demonstrate how to make some of her favorite main courses and amazing side dishes that are at their very best in the heat of the summer months. Of course, a sip or three of refreshing wines will be served to keep the August heat at bay! Please note this is a seafood demonstration class, not a cooking class.

Introduction to the Multicam Industrial CNC Router: JULY

Description:

Want to build big? Learn to use the industrial Multicam CNC router! Able to cut 2- and 3-dimensional shapes from full-size, inches-thick sheets of wood, plastics, and aluminum, this machine is the largest computer-controlled cutter currently in our shops. In this month-long intensive training, learn everything you need to know to operate the machine safely and independently.

The class will cover topics including:

  • processing HSMWorks files through the controller, 
  • setting appropriate spindle speeds
  • modifying tool paths
  • allowable materials and thicknesses
  • loading material onto the table
  • identifying failure modes and trouble-shooting

Class Goals:

The successful student will be able to take an existing file and run it through the machine independently without hurting themselves, others, or the machine. Additional run time may be necessary in order for students to feel comfortable addressing various failure modes of the machine without consulting the instructor.

Prerequisites:

Should have completed the HSMWorks for CNC Machining class here at Artisan's Asylum or have equivalent experience with HSMWorks.

Materials Provided:

Registration covers the cost of basic training materials and tool maintenance. Students have the option of working on an independent project, in which case they will be responsible for obtaining the necessary additional materials.

What to Bring:

Students should have a means for taking notes in class. Students should wear closed-toe shoes and avoid dangling jewelry, clothing, or hair. Students have the option of bringing their own file for cutting.
