Telluride Comedy Festival: The SAF and Jeb Berrier present the 21st annual Telluride Comedy Fest Feb. 13-16. Don’t miss this hilarious midwinter weekend of entertainment with some of the funniest comedians around. Comedians and schedule will be announced in January. Children are allowed to attend if accompanied by an adult, the show is rated R.
Karl Denson's Tiny Universe presents Election Year — Winter Edition 2020 at Club Red. Genre: Jazz, Soul, Funk Doors: 7:30 pm Start: 8:30 pm. Singer and saxophonist Karl Denson fronts the Tiny Universe as if he’s preaching the gospel. His energy and spirit are contagious while his songwriting serves a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions and cultures. Not surprisingly, he’s none too pleased with the current state of political discourse. Thus the reason why KDTU’s recent album, Gnomes & Badgers, out now on Seven Spheres Records, is Denson’s hard-grooving answer to these tragically divisive times.
Lost Wax Jewelry: Over three weeks, students will learn how to carve and manipulate wax and apply basic metal techniques to conceptualize and finish two pieces of jewelry (rings, bangle bracelets, pendants, or beads). After first cutting, sculpting and carving their specific jewelry pieces into of wax, students’ designs will be sent off to be cast in silver or jeweler’s bronze. The second class session will focus on metal work, covering basic soldering, cutting with a jeweler’s saw, drilling, rivets, shaping and filing. During the final class, students will put it all together, applying finishing techniques to their cast pieces, including hand finishing, filing, sanding and flex shaft processes. The materials fee includes wax, tools and equipment.
