Needhams--Maine's Potato Candy


with Vicki Dill

Calendar Dec 5, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

While Maine is not only famous for its blueberries and maple syrup, it has another, more earthy, local crop: potatoes.

If you're from Maine, you've probably heard of needhams — a traditional sweet, covered in chocolate, with a soft center coconut confection and a surprising ingredient, POTATO.

In this one-evening class, learn how to make these sweet Maine treats, just in time for the holidays.

A supply fee of $6.00 is payable to instructor at the class.

Students should bring a flat, 1-pint container to take their needhams home.

Stacked Art Glass Holiday Tree


with Cathy Ottum

Calendar Nov 30, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week
Making this holiday tree is easy and fun. All the art glass in various shades of green will be pre-cut and abrasive edges will be removed. The tree top star will be pre-attached for you so that the adhesive has time to set. You will build your tree on a glass base starting with the trunk and finishing with the tree top star. Each piece (all 36) will be held together with a glass adhesive. The adhesive used will cure in 24 hours and you will be able to secure the tree for transport home. The finished height of the tree is approximately 7.5 inches. Time may allow for a second tree or alternative project to be completed. A $12.00 supply fee (per tree) is payable to instructor at the class. Deadline to register is November 23.
