Fall is quickly approaching. Halloween decor and candy is showing up in grocery stores, the weather is cooling down, and the leaves are changing color. As kids are heading back to school, it’s the perfect time for adults to learn something new too.
We’ve heard about a few delicious and entertaining ways to spend this upcoming, sun-kissed weekend (have you seen that forecast?), and we thought we’d share the goodness with you!
Planting season is in full swing and it’s a great time to start your garden, get some new house plants or repot some of your current ones. Whether you have outdoor space, a deck or balcony, or just a windowsill, now is the perfect time!
We had the chance to chat with Kellie Phelan in her bright new space in First Hill earlier this month for this month’s edition of Seattleite Spotlight. Kellie is the owner of The Works, a DIY school for adults. Classes range from knitting, gardening, kitchen & pantry (preserving food), to crafty stuff. Basically, a little bit of everything.
The Works Seattle teaches workshops on growing an edible garden, preserving food (pickling and jams), baking, and other crafty things. The fall line-up is live and it includes new cooking classes, the return of sourdough bread, plus herbal infusions, terrariums, and embroidery as embellishment and so much more.
Every year, I make a list of things I want to learn. This year, my list included gardening, calligraphy, and salsa dancing. I’ve ticked the first two off the list, but haven’t signed up for dance classes yet. It’s often difficult to find the time to learn something new, especially if you need to commit to several weeks or months. However, there are many classes and workshops that are just a few hours long that give you a little intro. Here are some of our favorites we think are worth checking out.
