Spring Cleaning • APRIL 2021
If you have been in the building recently, you will have seen lots of workers freshening things up for the spring. We are grateful to the Lambertus family who have made many of these building projects possible. This spring you will not see decades of old wires hanging around, but you will see new carpeting and bright new lights at our Mass. Ave. sign. And just in time for our Earth Day event, you can also see new energy-saving lighting throughout the building.

Read on for ways you can freshen things up this spring by joining us for some inspiring new classes and events!
Classes & Workshops

Felted Flowers Workshop

Join us May 3, 4 for our Wet Felted Flowers Workshop with Elizabeth Stubbs. Celebrate the season with color! In this two-part workshop we will learn to create several beautiful different felted flowers and leaves from soft, unspun sheep’s wool - a cheerful collection with which to decorate your home or yourself.

Mother's Day gift anyone?.
April Ceramics Workshop

Ceramic artist Celia Feldberg joins our clay studio Saturday, April 10 for an in-person sgraffito workshop. Sgraffito meaning 'to scratch' in Italian, is the process of applying a slip or underglaze to an unfired piece, then carving through it to reveal the contrasting clay color beneath. After experimenting with different methods of drawing on clay this has become the primary method that Celia currently uses in her work.
All the dancers at our Lexington School of Ballet, from the youngest to the advanced, are dancing beautifully from their bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens! We love seeing them in all continuing to dance in remote locations, but are looking forward to having them back in our studios to begin the hybrid program in April.

More information about the ballet summer hybrid classes is available on their website.
