Beginner Cookie Decorating Class

(Adult & Children 12+)

If you’ve never worked with royal icing or have dabbled just a little, this class will help you get the ball rolling. We’ll briefly talk about the basics of baking cookies and some tips and tricks of the trade, but then we’ll move right into the world of decorating. We will work step by step on each cookie to learn the various decorating techniques used with royal icing. There are five cookie designs planned, and we will keep things rolling to get them all completed by the end of class. You will be taking them home with you, along with an icing recipe, a sugar cookie recipe, decorating tool, cookie cutter, piping bags and a packet of seasonal sprinkles and/or cookie decorations. We’ll also discuss websites to check for additional tutorials, instructional blogs, recipes and vendors/suppliers, for those who want to take it to the next level. Open to students ages 12 and up. Students who have to withdraw must do so at least one week prior to the start of the course for a full refund.

Recreate Your Own Clothing

(Adult & Children 10+)

A creative class just for you. Do you have something in your closet that no longer fits, is boring, or you just don’t like anymore? Learn how to convert that into something unique and stylish of your own creation! In this class, you will bring whatever item you want to work on, and the teacher will help you to get your creative juices flowing and convert that boring thing into something you can’t wait to wear. To be prepared for this class, you will need to bring your own sewing machine, sharp fabric scissors, tailor’s chalk, seam ripper, ruler, matching thread, and anything else you may want to add to your project. You must already know how to sew a straight stitch on your own machine. This will be a mixed adult and mature child class for ages 10+.
