Tatting Class — Springville Center for the Arts is offering two workshops Oct. 27 and Nov. 10 where students will learn a brief overview of what tatting is and how it evolved, then learn the basic slip knot technique using shuttles.
Tatting is a technique for handcrafting lace from knots and loops. Instructor Kaela Jacobs will provide both left-handed and right-handed instructions and demonstration. All skill levels are welcome to join the class.
Jacobs learned how to make tatted lace when she was a teenager after finding a bag of tatting thread and shuttles at the Springville Auction. Resources on the internet inspired her to pursue this fun and unusual art and helped her connect with other tatters. She maintains a blog to showcase her work at www.straightlacedtatting.blogspot.com.
There will be two separate sessions Oct. 27 and Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to noon. Students can attend either or both depending on preference. Cost is $20 per session. A $5 lab fee is charged if materials are needed. Call 592-9038 to register by phone, or go to SpringvilleArts.org to register online.
Missy Raines Concert — This 7-time winner of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Bass Player of the Year Award is coming to Springville Center for the Arts on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m.
Raines has had a prolific career including backing greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker and Peter Rowan. She now leads her own innovative and genre-bending trio with a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana featuring George Jackson on fiddle/banjo and Ben Garnett on guitar.
New York Music Daily says “Raines is not only a superb bassist but also an excellent singer, with a matter-of-fact, low-key delivery that’s sometimes hushed, sometimes seductive, sometimes channeling a simmering unease.”
Tickets are available online at SpringvilleArts.org, or by calling 592-9038. Cost is $12 pre-sale or $15 at the door. Springville Center for the Arts is located at 37 N. Buffalo Street, Springville.
