Breadmaking at the Home in Hillsborough @ Home in Hillsborough
Nov 21 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

We would like to recreate the tradition of the communal bread oven that was pivotal to village life in Europe for many centuries. The oven was fired up once a week and the locals would carry the dough they had prepared at home. Each family marked the top of the dough with a distinctive cut to distinguish their bread from another family. The bread oven was where the village gathered: family news was shared, political matters debated, and community was built. We fire our oven and you bring your home-made dough. You will learn how to bake in a wood-fired oven, be able to experiment, taste, discuss and share tips and recipes with fellows bread lovers. While your bread is baking or your dough is rising, you are welcome to stroll through our four-acre garden along the banks of the Eno.

Instructional paint parties @ Artist Studio near Raleigh
Nov 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

I have always had a passion for art. I am new to the Raleigh area, moving from WNY. I am an Art Institute of Pittsburgh graduate. Shorty after moving here I had hosted a couple of instructional paint parties for kids in my neighborhood, giving them opportunities to use materials like stretched canvas and working on blending skills. The interest has continued to grow to include adult paint parties as well. I provide all of the supplies and instruction on how to paint a painting of your choice for you and your friends. The end result, a beautiful painting that you complete!
All supplies are provided: canvasses, tablecloths, easels, smocks, paint and brushes. You can have up to eight guests for your event. If you prefer, it can be hosted at a location of your choice as well.

Shueh-li Ong: Thereminist, Songwriter, Synthesist. @ Arcana Durham
Nov 28 all-day

Shueh-li Ong is a Nashville-based songwriter, composer, producer, synthesist, and world-renown thereminist. Her music bears elements of her training in classical and electronic music, and her Australian-Singaporean heritage.

Shueh-li has produced 4 albums to date, and her performance on the theremin (an instrument played without contact but with precision finger movements in the air) has also appeared on an indie sci-fi film, a contemporary classical work, theatrical productions and several prog-rock albums.

Shueh-li has been crowned “Queen” of the theremin in Nashville TN, and “Diva” by Singaporean media. ThereminVox Italy said, “Shueh-li’s an inspired artist with a solid background who has brought fresh ideas into the theremin field.” UsaProgMusic said of her 3rd album, “New, original and engaging sounds are abundant throughout this wonderfully crafted album.”

Shueh-li writes her favorite genres and plays synthesizer, tin-whistle and sings alongside her proximity instrument which was customized by Bob Moog. Shueh-li is bringing along an original mix of prog-rock, jazz fusion and synthpop to her 2018 east coast tour. Those familiar with her musical offerings can look forward to entertainment with an insightful twist.

Artists who have worked with Shueh-li include: Chris Currell (MJ’s BAD tour/album), Dean Parks (Steely Dan), Curtis Randall (LeAnn Rimes), Tom Brislin (Meat Loaf), Beegie Adair (Steinway Jazz artist), and Eric Struthers (Aaron Neville Quartet).
