Create a Beautiful Yarn Wall Hanging
This is a creative class, and anyone can do it! Choose your own color palette, and build a beautiful wall hanging. You'll learn how to warp your loom. Master the yarn design techniques like the basic tabby weave, soumak (braid stitch), loops, lines and shapes. Then, you'll finish the edges, take it off your loom, and hang it with driftwood, dowel or a pipe. Voila!
Nordic Spoon Carving in Minneapolis
Come spend a relaxing couple of hours learning the slow craft of spoon carving. This is not a race to the finish kind of class. We will go over knife safety, knife grips, and different kinds of knife strokes and practice on a stick before going onto your spoon blank. We axe out the spoon blanks before you arrive , so all you have to do is enjoy carving your spoon. There will be periodic breaks, and hand stretching as well as an axing demo by Erik so you can see how a spoon blank is made. This class will last three hours. Other things to note You will be carving a spoon from fresh green wood. We will be using knives and spoon hooks to make our spoon. Hand strength and an open mind to a new experience are helpful. Left handed welcome too.

We always feature pastry, great coffee, fresh sourdough bread, natural wine, and a reliable menu of standards and originals. The cost reflected ($5) is to make a reservation. We have an a la carte menu, and an option for a Chef's set menu. Meals will typically range from $20-$55 per person, depending on your appetite. We also accept walk-ins. Space is very limited, so we do encourage reservations. For larger parties, we encourage you to book a private party.
Uncover Hidden Bars of the Twin Cities
We'll spend three hours exploring a curated list of four of Minneapolis’ best bars. We won’t just be drinking there, we’ll be learning the story of the bar, meeting the bartender, and trying a new drink. Once you’re settled in with your drink, I’ll have a story to share with you about what helped make this fascinating city what it is today. The tour’s unnamed guest star is YOU. One third drinking, one third history and one third banter make this a thirst-quenching, educational, and social experience that has a little something for everybody. For this tour to work, the city needed two key things — a best-in-class bar scene, and a fascinating and varied history. Starting with the bars, Minneapolis is in the midst of a golden age of drinking. Long gone are the days of alcohol smuggling, speakeasies and temperance groups. No, today Minneapolis is dotted with distilleries, breweries and hidden havens for imbibing. Since the days of the lumberjacks, Minnesota has always put a premium on hand-crafting. Today’s embodiment of that is in our locally made beers and spirits. The care and craftsmanship put into these venues deserves to be seen, and it’s where we’ll be exploring on our tour. As for our history, Minneapolis is not lacking. Running through Minneapolis’ history can be a dizzying experience, like reading a book by an author who should get gone through a few more edits.

￼Can you stand the heat? Do you feel like learning a valuable skill that few people possess? Want to make a unique piece of art or repair a household item with your own two hands and some sparks?! Sparkin’ Suz is offering “make and take” classes in metal fabrication where not only can you gain valuable experience welding, but also take a home creation of your own to prove to others you can indeed weld ;) Whether you’re just getting out of diapers or you’re just getting into them, whether you’ve been welding for years and want to get back in the groove or have never even seen a welder, whether it’s for therapy, fun, or to get some arc time gaining experience toward learning a skill you can make a career out of.. Everyone is welcome and will definitely feel those sparks fly! ;) Well, not exactly feel them as I will have all necessary protective gear to keep you safe. One person, two person, and group sessions available! We’ll start the class by going over some safety. Either before you come to my class you can pick out a project you’d like to build, or just work on scrap pieces I will provide. The class will be what you make it, it’s very individualized! We will work on setting the machine, running beads, then finally working on whatever project you’d like! It’s a different experience with new things to learn every time you strike an arc. Let’s build something together!
Wild Edible Plants and mushrooms
We will meet at a local coffee shop and then caravan to take a hike at a nearby trail. We will hike for 2 hours and gather plants and mushrooms that are out when you visit, and I'll teach you about their biology and what can be done with them. Any questions you have I will either answer on the trail or follow up afterwards. This experience is focused for those who are beginner or intermediate with foraging and herbalism. Each season has different flora and fungi out, and specifics of what can be found depend on the specific weather each year and week. Generally, this is what will be found throughout the growing season. -mid-May: early June: spring greens, herbs and a few mushrooms -mid-June-mid-July: berries, herbs and a few mushrooms -mid-July-mid-August: berries, herbs and many edible mushrooms picking up with some rain -mid-August-mid-September: great time for a variety of edible and other mushrooms (with good rains), herbs
Play with Clay in a Fanciful Studio
I will give you a tour of Clay Squared which is a working studio in two types of clay- Ceramic and Polymer clay. You'll be surrounded by my sculptures and my husband's tiles and we will both tell you about our art. Then I'll teach you a few easy techniques in polymer clay that even the non-artistic can pick up right away. Next you will get to explore my endless scrap pile to add to your own creations and make a finished piece which could be anything from a decorative frame to a light switch cover to a sugar bowl. I can bake your creation for you while you wait (20 minutes) or you can take it with you to bake yourself. I always create right a long side you- sometimes on large commissions and sometimes on small pieces. I will also share any info you are interested in about the North East Minneapolis Arts District which is home of over 400 studios. Other things to note Everything you learn is step by step and Layl is all about positivity. Polymer clay is magical and very forgiving. We tend to run a closer to 2 hours than an hour and a half but let me know if you need to be done earlier and we can make it happen.
