"Pasta 101" 11/19 Fresh Pasta Making Class
"Pasta 101" Fresh Pasta Class focusing on technique mixed with Italian traditions & history of pasta making in Italy. Join Seven Hills Pasta Co.'s very own chief "pastaio" Giulio Caperchi in a hands on pasta making experience. Born and raised in Rome, Italy, Giulio brings a wealth of knowledge and experience making pasta with his Nonna ever since he was a child and later while studying at Rome's A Tavola Con Lo Chef, a chef school in the heart of Rome. Our approach is fun and casual - no experience necessary!  Students will make their pasta dough from scratch and learn tips and tricks along the way. After we make our own pasta, the group enjoys the fruits of their labor in a delicious pasta tasting paired with a local & seasonal homemade sauce.  You'll go home with not only your own fresh made pasta, but a new outlook on how such a simple food can really bring folks to the table. Buon Appetito! Seven Hills Pasta Co. is a family owned artisan pasta company located in Melrose, MA. Husband and wife team, Carol & Giulio Caperchi are excited to welcome you into their "pastificio" and enjoy a fun class making pasta. Ci vediamo presto!

Edit to Print
How do we edit an image to make the best print possible? Which images work for print and which do not? What paper should we print on? How should we edit for each paper? In this roundtable class, we will work with your images, discuss and process them, and discuss the printing process. We ask attendees to bring in three images on a USB drive (RAW, if possible) that they may want to print. We will review the images and choose one to edit in Adobe Lightroom and then send it to print. Attendees will leave with one print, 11x17 in size (printed on 13x19 paper) and a bit more knowledge on the process of editing and printing, not to mention the knowledge of how to take the photograph better in the field for next time.This is a class that you can take as many times as you’d like. Since you’re constantly working with new images, you’re always working out new challenges!In the class, we will have a variety of paper options to choose from, including Moab Fine Art papers. (The cost of an 11x17 or 13x19 print on fine art paper is $35-$40; the cost of this class includes the cost of that print!) Come see your images, printed vibrantly in a large format!

Many household items, cut flowers, books, antiques, jewelry, and glassware all make for wonderful subjects while using natural window light. Every table in your house can become a landscape of opportunity with some imagination and creativity.   In our November Macro & Tabletop workshop, we will specialize in creating holiday-themed macro images. Who doesn’t want to spruce up their holiday cards with a beautifully exposed and composed holiday-themed macro photograph?? At the end of the workshop, our goal is to have each photographer leave with a beautiful print. We will spend our day creating a variety of still life set ups, unique macro scenarios, and learning about the use of light and light modifiers, all with a holiday spin!  In this workshop we will cover:   Exposure Composition Metering Use of Lenses Use of Light Modifiers Subject Development Creative Thinking Shooting in Low Light Image Discussion
