Join us for Hobby Night on the first Sunday of the Month at 6:00 pm.
Here's the schedule:
February 7 - Pastor Greg shares his Woodworking hobby, with pictures, insights, and demonstrations!
- What I really love about woodworking is the creativity, the problem-solving, and the work with a (once-)living medium - wood moves and bends and twists. And, the mystic in me believes it has a story to tell. The colors and textures of different varieties of wood are like paints on a palette or notes in a song or words in a poem.
March 7 - Siri Huntoon shares her Sketching Nature hobby!
- Drawing nature is a mental challenge because nature is so vastly much more complex than our built environment. Whoever believes the nude is the hardest subject has not felt their butt meld with the cold and damp ground, finishing a drawing of a manzanita thicket before its 100,000 elegant little leaves fade into twilight! It's a battle between eye, hand, water, ink, paper and coyotes, I will share it all!
April 11 - Bill Walker shares his Accordion Playing hobby!
(HOBBY NIGHT will be on the 2nd Sunday in April, the 11th, then back to the first Sunday starting in May.)
May 2 - Sarah Weaver shares her Victorian Research hobby!
- I have pursued both my PhD and my research since graduation basically for fun – certainly no one is paying me to do it! I use vacation time to go to Victorian studies conferences and visit the British Library, and I love digging into the history of people who were trying to make sense of a rapidly changing world by means of scholarly fields that they were inventing as they went along. I'll talk about some of the research I've done, focusing on my favorite Victorian: a linguist, historian, and archaeologist who defies some of the preconceptions you probably have about nineteenth-century Britain.
June 6 - Kim Marinucci Acker shares Cooking with the Seasons!
August 1 - Alan Hebert shares his Clarinet hobby!
- Tonight in Hobby Night, you'll learn a little bit about the clarinet . . . where the instrument came from, the different kinds of clarinets, and so on. I'll talk a little bit about how I started playing and give you a peek into my family photo album. Finally, we'll listen to two recordings of Yours Truly playing "classical" clarinet in small groups.
