The library launches its first women-only cheese-making course next week.
Consider her whey is a ladies-only evening course looking at all aspects of cheese making from culture to coagulation.
Ask at the Front Desk for a course pamphlet.
The library would like to thank everyone who has so far contributed to the Chapelkill Institute of Chronophotography restoration project
The Institute was founded in the 1930s by a collective of Northern England’s most experimental filmmakers, physicians, librarians and alchemists. They employed a variety of kinetscopic and electrotachyscopic techniques to produce a unique body of public information films, experimental shorts and local document.
The recent fire which razed Chapelkill Factory destroyed much of the Institute’s highly flammable archive.
Following last year’s appeal, the library has received hours of footage from collectors, film clubs and enthusiasts, material that was feared lost for good.
The material is being lovingly restored by our Head Librarian in preparation for a week long festival of the Institute’s work some time around the solstice.
To get involved, please ask at the Front Desk.
Jacqueline Fearn’s Domestic Bygones on the wonderful Shire imprint.
The bygones illustrated on the cover are (clockwise from top left); a wall-hanging kitchen-knife box; a Victorian composite tool, characteristically neatly organised; a visiting-card case; boot driers or warmers, which were filled with hot water; a lemon squeezer.
