Cold Weather Classes.

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Last winter, because I was feeling restless and missed being in a classroom, I decided to sign myself up for ten weeks of introductory French lessons. While the course itself was ultimately not for me, (I went to five meetings, where I learned to say, "My name is Shoko. I live in Brooklyn. I have a brown rabbit"), it felt good to be getting out of the apartment and learning something new.


This winter, I'm thinking of enrolling in another course. There's certainly no shortage of choices here in New York City - options I'm considering include perfume blending, a letterpress class, memoir writing, and Cheese 101. So many to choose from, and so little time. Any suggestions? Please share!

Oh wow, what a great selection. I think the letterpress class would be my pick. :)

I've been considering taking a introductory graphic design course myself. However, I think Cheese 101 and Letterpress sound pretty intriguing (and you're a lucky NYer because there's definitely a shortage of courses where I live!)

Good Luck.

i've been sort of obsessed with photoshop since blogshop and have thought about taking more photoshop classes. if you taking something photoshop/photography-esque let me know! for real.

NooooOoOOoOOOoO! I want to take them all with you. You don't need to do intro letterpress. You already took that class. Remember the hours we spent on Tine's book!?!?!?

Perfume sounds good to me. Then if you are ever unemployed you have a marketable skill to fall back on. That's how I felt about the chocolate truffling business.

But cheese is ALWAYS good.

perfume or cheese. just don't mix the two.

i'd take the memoir writing and then transfer what i learned to the storytelling class :)

Charity said...

the cheese course sounds amazing! are you into photography at all? cooking? wines?

Stephanie said...

my votes are with letter press or cheese 101! also if there is a printmaking class i would take advantage of that. I could see you making amazing creations!

Shoko said...

Wow! Thank you all so, so much! I have so many ideas now - this is great. I'll definitely keep you posted on what I end up doing!

And Charity - yes, cooking and wine, definitely. If you know of anything interesting, fill me in! :)

Cheese 101 sounds like a class that would be pretty interesting.
