Things You Didn't Know You Wanted to Know

I think I need a new title for this category, because TYDKYWTK is a completely unpronounceable acronym. Any suggestions?

In the meantime, our featured class this week is today's Birch Bark Picture Framing Workshop at the Eiteljorg. It's taught by birch bark artist David Bridges (who knew there was such a thing?), and participants will learn about Passamaquoddy culture while they create their frames. Cost is $40; registration is required.

A few other upcoming Eiteljorg classes also fit this category. Take, for example, the Birch Bark Etching Workshop (July 23; same instructor) and the Drum-Making Workshop (Aug. 2).

There's also a community drumming circle from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. every Saturday this summer. It's billed as a good way to "find your path" and relieve stress. Hey, I'll buy that. Banging on something and making lots of noise seems like a good stress reliever to me.
