Under Milk Wood, a play for voices by Dylan Thomas, will be presented by the Lubec Campobello Community Theatre as a staged reading with two performances in March. Sarah Dalton-Phillips, the director, grew up listening to an LP recording of the play. “It has been ratling around in my head for 50 years; high time to let it out!” She describes it as, “a wonderfully humorous and poetic description of 24 hours in the life of a small seaside town in Wales, which is populated by some amazingly funny and poignant people. Since we live in small seaside communities, this work should resonate.” Performances will be held on Saturday, March 11, at 2 p.m. at the Eastport Arts Center and Saturday, March 18, at 2 p.m. at Crow Town Gallery in Lubec. Admission is $5, and refreshments will be served.Find out more »

Eastport Arts Center will offer “Line, Shape and Rhythm On Cloth: Traditional Starch Batik Methods from Asia and Africa,” a workshop with Susan Lehnen, on Saturday, March 4, and Saturday, March 18, from 12:30-4:30 pm. The workshop will acquaint people with traditional methods of starch batik and provide an opportunity for experimentation and skill development. Called Adire Eleko in Africa and Norizome in Japan, these techniques create pattern by applying starch paste to cloth with a brush or stencil, then immersing the treated fabric in dye. When the paste is removed and cloth rinsed, a white figure is revealed against a dark ground. Starch batik can stand alone as a textile surface design method, and is very compatible with bound resist and itajime skills. Lehnen will be assisted by Fern Hilyard in teaching the medium.Find out more »
