Fermentation Workshop
April 7, 2018
10am – Noon

Come ferment with us!

Join us for a little history, a little science, and a lot of bacteria talk! We will taste-test a variety of ferments and all make kraut together.
Fermented vegetables are not only delicious, but they are great for you – boosting your all-important gut microbes, they add pizzaz and tang to any meal, and kept in the fridge, last indefinitely. Fermented vegetables are also easy and safe to make at home.
Everyone will go home with a jar of kraut to ferment.
Curious and aspiring fermenters are encouraged to come, no fermenting experience required!
This workshop will be led by Katie Semro, owner of Shipwreck Ferments, Rollinsford, NH.
 
SPACE IS LIMITED, and this sold out quickly last time. Locking in your space in advance is required and subject to availability.

Ongoing Bi-Weekly Studio Painting Classes
Christopher Volpe

Evening oil painting group classes, suitable for beginners and adventurous painters alike.

Demos, instruction, refreshments, and fertile ground for skill-building and self expression.

All you need to bring is a basic painting kit (paints, brushes, mineral spirits, canvas and easel), your favorite bottle of wine (if so inclined), and your sense of adventure, as each week a new game plan is tried out for the painting du jour.

Christopher Volpe is an oil painter creating moody, poetic landscapes in an expressive, tonalist style. Though rooted in landscape, his atmospheric paintings combine the traditional and the contemporary to express intangible feelings and ideas. Largely self-taught, Volpe has quickly established himself as an artist with uncommon vision and truly evocative style.
