This month’s Community Education class offerings include some new topics and also some familiar ones.
One new class, led by Shane Tulowitzky from Mel’s Trading Post, is a Beginner Cross Country Skiing class. This will be held at the Cedric A. Vig Outdoor Classroom (CAVOC) on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. This month’s class will provide a positive, no-pressure experience for the student. Designed for beginners, this class is for people of all ages. Families are encouraged to sign up together. The cost of the class is only $10 per person. If you are unable to make the January class, a second offering is planned for Feb. 10.
Ruth Hempel and the wonderful people at Forth Floral continue to offer classes through Community Education. On Thursday, Jan. 23, they are offering a Houseplant Care class. In this class, participants will learn how to keep their plants looking their best as we wait for spring to return. The class runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Forth Floral. The fee is only $10.
The jewelry making series, offered by instructor Lisa Pietrzak, continues to be popular. For the Winter/Spring session, eight classes are being offered. The first class is Jan. 14 and will focus on “The Cabaret,” which includes experimentation with square, bicone and seed beads. Students will make and take home an attractive bracelet. The theme for the January 28th class will be “Bugle Bracelet.” Students will create and take home a unique piece using bugle beads. All jewelry classes run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and are held at the Rhinelander High School Library.
A mainstay class in Community Education has been Carol Lofquist’s K9 Manners/Dog Obedience. These classes run for 6-week sessions. The first class is coming up very soon. It runs on Thursdays from Jan. 16 through Feb. 27 from 6 to 7 p.m. at Pelican Elementary School. Cost for the entire session is only $50.
