This is a shameless non-Newton plug .. though there is a Newton connection.
The town of Weston took a defunct 19th century library and just turned it in to the Weston Arts & Innovation Center. The Newton Nomadic traveling theater just brought our new show, The Revolutionists, there for two sold out shows this past weekend. The place is beautiful!
They want to let Newton residents know that they are offer a”maker space” and a wide variety of classes and entertainment and you don’t need to live in Weston to avail yourself of a rapidly expanding series of classes in painting, 3D printing, photography, jewelry making, sewing, etc or come to their Open Mike’s or storytelling events. The spaces are also available for rental for events. It’s only 5 minutes from the Newton town line. Check it out.
