Spinner Ring


with Alice Carroll, York Adult Education

Make your own fun ring with moving parts. Great ring to wear if you like to figit. This is a beginner workshop that will focus on learning how to size your ring and your metal, textures and soldering. Each student will have time to try stamping, roller printing, and hammered textures. The ring will be textured, then soldered and shaped, polished and at the very end we will add the spinners to the ring, so that they move freely. No experience necessary, all materials and tools supplied.

Northern Viewpoint Book Club - March - 1984


with Christa Galipeau, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Mar 2, 2023 at 6 pm

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...


A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel’s hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions—a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
