Pass the Hors d’Oeurves, Please
If you’re retired, you might be taking advantage of that extra
free time and doing some traveling that you could never do while you were
working. And that means you aren’t home long enough to commit to a 10-week class
– or even a 6-week class, most likely.
Well, we have the perfect solution! If you’ve studied our
website or our catalog (like we hope you have), you’ll see that we have many
one- or two-day courses and workshops designed for people like you who can’t
commit to an extended class right now.
One-day workshops give you a taste of all sorts of interesting
adventures, from jewelry making to gardening to painting. An hour here, a
couple of hours there – whenever you feel like taking a class, we’ve got something
to tickle your fancy.
Of course, we hope that when you’re not on the road, you’ll sign
up for a longer class so you can give a subject your full attention in more
depth. But a one-day class gets you out of the house and gives you a tidbit of learning
to whet your appetite. It’s like an hors d’oeuvre for your mind!
Here are a few examples of what’s coming up this summer:
