Turning fresh apple cider into delicious fermented hard cider is the easiest and most enjoyable of fermentation processes. We will obtain our juice from regional orchards in late October then meet to learn about all aspects of hard cider production. Complete this course with approximately 2.5 gallons of bottled hard cider. Great for beginners; intermediate students with prior experience will gain increased knowledge through instruction and independent study.

Our first class will meet 6-9pm Oct. 15 . During the following three months, we will meet approximately every other Monday, from 6-9pm. Due to the unpredictable nature of the fermentation process, we may have meetings on other days.

Ages 21 and over only.

Come explore basic embroidery techniques and how to apply them to “drawings” using direct drawing, transfer and projection. This will be both a technical skills class and an idea development class. We will discuss stitch, color and materials choices while learning and exploring traditional techniques of drawing such as contour, and hatching through the stitch. This is a great class for beginners up to advanced students in embroidery. We will go over all the basics but all the conceptual and drawing skills can be applied to any skill level.
