Today in NOLA 7.12.17

Today, bead a hot summer trend yourself, learn the history of New Orleans Jazzwomen, get the rundown on how letterpress works, or gain a greater understanding at the Hunger book tour. On July 12th 1944, the Liberty shop, Frederick Von Steuben was launched by Delta Shipbuilding Company. Now, more to do this Wednesday. 


Pearl + Leather Class (The Bead Shop, 9AM)

It’s already pretty obvious that pearl and leather jewelry are going to be trending this season into the fall and winter months. While you could jump in your car to go to the mall or simply rush deliver from Amazon, The Bead Shop is offering the opportunity to learn how to create this hot accessory all by yourself as well as several knotting and finishing techniques.


More to the Story(ville) (Williams Research Center, 6PM)

While most of the focus is usually trained on the men of New Orleans jazz, Sherrie Tucker is here to turn that upside down. She is the professor of American Studies at the Univeristy of Kansas and she is here to share of research on the woman who played in and out of the District in the early days of New Orleans jazz. Come and learn about the city's femme-focused past. 


Intro to Letterpress (Baskerville, 6PM)

Hosted at the Baskerville Studio, this is the first in a series of letterpress printing classes for those new to letterpress printing and are curious about the process. In this inaugural entry level class, student will see examples of different techniques. Safety, shop norms, brief history of letterpress, how to print with wood type, intro to different kinds of presses, and basic press operations will be covered as well.
