Join us for a unique pottery performance. We will “dig” into clay and creativity, exploring the wonderful feel of clay during a creative and entertaining demonstration of pottery wheel techniques. This program will introduce the four techniques of forming clay and then focus on the potter’s wheel, itself. You will have the opportunity to consider such unusual forms as two walled pots and see creatures and multiple posts made from a single lump of clay. This program is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council as administrated by our local Cultural Council.

Join local author Edward Lodi as he speaks about his latest book on King Philip’s War (the 340th anniversary of the start of the war). He will give a brief overview of the war, including its causes, its beginnings in Plymouth Colony, its rapid spread throughout New England, and its long-lasting effects on both the English and the Indians. He will highlight the various individuals – men, women, and children on both sides – who fought in the war or were its victims or who otherwise played significant or memorable roles. He welcomes questions during and after his talk; copies of his books will be available for purchase.
