The perfect winter DIY classes

For such a long time in our history, if people wanted something, they had to make it. There wasn’t a corner store that carried one of everything. You couldn’t just run to Target to get whatever you needed for the holiday, or pick up out-of-season veggies at the grocery store. Now, we can find pretty much whatever we want, whenever we want it. With that, we’ve lost the skills we once had: of doing things ourselves. Now, though, when we learn a new skill, it isn’t purely a question of survival. We can learn things for fun, to sate our natural curiosity. There’s a new kind of freedom in that.

Our next few workshops embrace old skills in a new world. We’re starting with a Sourdough Bread Baking workshop on November 21. We’ve collaborated with Greg Hall of local Khorasan Mills to bring you an introduction to this baking tradition. At this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to create your own sourdough starter, and how to use it to bake a loaf of delicious old-fashioned bread. Sourdough bread baking is an ancient technique that results in tasty, healthful bread you can share with your family.

For those of you who, like us, cherish a handmade holiday decoration, we’ve opened up two Holiday Wreath Making workshops on December 3 and 5. You’ll spend time in good company learning how to make a custom 22” holiday wreath to hang on your door. Our friends at Local Roots Flower Farm will guide you through choosing a pine base and adding dried citrus, acorns, eucalyptus, and other classic holiday design elements.

Come join us to revisit old skills in a modern world and to find a new passion to take home!

As Christmas approaches, it’s time to get those gifts checked off our list. I know the feeling of being torn as you look at each name. I always want to get something personal, something that’s not just a gift for gift’s sake.

How I’m grateful
How I’m grateful

The coming holidays have me thinking a lot about gratitude. I think, in our modern lives, we sometimes push gratitude into a little to-do box. We take five minutes a day to be grateful, or include a line in our journals. But is that really what gratitude means? Is it something we do? Or is it a way that we live - a way of thinking, seeing, believing?
