with Bill Babb

Students will learn how to care for a sourdough starter, how to knead using two different techniques, and how to mix, shape and score the bread for baking. The instructor will demonstrate two ways to bake a loaf, using a cloche or on a stone with steam in the oven, followed by a taste testing. Students will then shape, score and bake a loaf of their own in class. They will take home some sourdough culture (bring a 32 ounce container) for bread baking at home.

Nature Writing Through Personal Essay


with Laurie Murray

Calendar Apr 6, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Does the writing of E.B. White or Henry David Thoreau provide you with a sense that you have just meandered your way through a meadow at a saltwater farm or sauntered slowly amidst balsam fir and spruce in the North Woods? If so, this class is for you. In the first few weeks we will learn about the genre by examining the writings of well-known nature writers, discuss how to establish place, and acquire observational skills when in the natural world, all while writing our own short nature essays. Next, we will discover ways to use sensory details and description, to research facts to support our stories, and to unveil fresh and exciting metaphors to include in our work. Each week there will be time for each student to share their work for an uplifting and lively critique.
