Arts Wayland Presents: Music for a Sunday Afternoon: “Summer Winds”. On June 4th at 4 pm at the First Parish in Wayland, Arts Wayland is excited to continue our classical music series, Music For a Sunday Afternoon with the Summer Winds Quintet. Summer Winds celebrates the outdoors through the centuries. Three Short Pieces of Jacques Ibert convey the gaiety and charm of 1930’s Paris. Darius Milhaud’s Cheminee du Roi Rene (The Chimney of King Rene), one of the twentieth century’s most beloved works for woodwinds, is a pageant of medieval Provence. Jousts, jugglers, hunters, wild boars, and the haunting call of curfew recall a heartier and simpler time. Concluding the program is a world premiere performance inspired by dreams and the swirling resonance of woodwinds. Stay after the performance for light refreshments and thank you to our co-sponsors of the event, The First Parish in Wayland and the Lauren Dunne Astley Memorial Fund.

Weave A Table Runner Workshop. Learn to master the art of hand weaving and weave a table runner to be taken home at the end of the class, just in time to set your Thanksgiving dinner table, or to gift a loved one for the holidays. No previous experience is necessary, as you will be guided by the teacher through the weaving, design and finishing process. We will be weaving with repurposed cotton fabric strips and luxury yarns on rigid heddle looms. Each student will be encouraged to see this way of weaving as a potential form of art and design which will be foremost in determining a unique table runner.Consider bringing your own fabrics to cut into strips and weave with. These can include a son’s flannel shirt, a husband’s neckties, patterned sheets which are no longer in service, etc. The teacher will have many cotton fabric strips to choose from as well.
