“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library

“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library |  |  |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming free film screening of Hidden Letters Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm at the Salt Lake Downtown Public Library.

Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Hidden Letters is a story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that defines but also oppresses them.

For thousands of years women who were often forced into oppressive marriages and forbidden to read or write, shared a secret language among themselves called Nushu. Written with delicate strokes made from sharpened bamboo sticks dipped in ink, Nushu bonded generations of Chinese women in a clandestine support system of sisterhood and survival.

Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Violet Du Feng via zoom cinematically exploring China’s gender issues as portrayed by this sensitive and stirring documentary.

Feb 11 all-day
Workshop: Garden Tool Sharpening and Maintenance @ Wasatch Community Gardens' Campus |  |  |

Join us in this new workshop to learn how to clean, sharpen and care for all your snips, pruners, shears, loppers, saws, and soil knives.

This class will cover a wide selection of sharpening and cleaning materials available to home gardeners, how and when to use different products and where to source them. We’ll demonstrate techniques and tips specific to different types of gardening tools and offer hands-on practice during class so students can get a feel for cleaning their tools and honing a sharp edge.

Expect to walk away with a working knowledge of different files, whetstones, various oils, lubricants and other tool cleaning and maintenance supplies. In addition to learning how to extend the life of your existing hand tools, you’ll learn what to look for when you need to purchase new tools that can stand the test of time.

Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub
Feb 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub |  |  |

At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and our special guest scientist Beth Drees will explain not just HOW to make slime, but WHY the whole thing works! Using this new chemical knowledge, kids are encouraged to create test batches of slime to explore their favorite textures by experimenting with different combinations of ingredients until they find the perfect recipe. Once their slime is just right, we’ll use ratios to create a mega-batch, add their favorite custom mix-ins, and package individual portions to hand out as special DIY valentine gifts for the whole class. Even grown ups will have fun engineering fascinating new goops with their kids, and at the end, everyone will walk away feeling like a chemical engineer.

This workshop will be held at the STEM Action Center’s Innovation Hub in Millcreek, where you can have all the fun of slime and leave the mess behind!

Please note: a parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child/children. The $29 ticket allows entry for one child and one parent. An additional $10 for entry of another child with that ticket.

As always, food trucks and food booths featuring local businesses will be on site serving delicious food and refreshments. We’ve listened to your feedback and are actively working to bring you the best event possible!
