    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- a weekly time to write in the company of others. Using Zoom to come together, we'll write for twenty-five minutes, take a break, repeat. There is no sharing or critique of your writing, only fast-paced, supportive productivity in the company of other writers. It will be fun, exciting, and might be the thing to help you finish (or start...) your manuscript. These virtual sessions will help participants set aside time to write and be with other writers in an informal setting. 

    The sessions will be led by a rotating team of hosts including Jen Scheiderman, Amelia Ramsey, Kassia Sing, Genevieve Douglass, and Steve Bice

    • You can register at anytime even if a session has passed.

    **This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**

    Join artist Susan Callan and other fellow artists who have traveled, kept journals en route, and didn’t leave the urge-to-art at home. Perhaps the art was an annotated menu, an adorned map, a hurried sketch of a stranger on a train, or a full-page of paint to capture a unique scene. Art stirs the traveler’s memory to re-live that moment, and the trip. Years later, it draws readers in, providing a time capsule  – in art and words.

    A travel journal can start with either bought or handcrafted books; it can be slim and sparse of content or bursting with your experiences. They are all priceless treasures. 

    Bring your favorite ‘artified’ travel journal to the Conversation. Bring questions, or tips you’ve picked up along the way. We’ll all be enriched by each other’s efforts. 

    The challenge between the 1st & 2nd session? Just for an afternoon, be a tourist in your own neighborhood. Create one or two bits of art. Bring them to life with a few well-chosen words. Build on your past AND the Conversation’s first session. We’ll show & share results in the 2nd session...and, wish everyone a Bon Voyage d’ART on their next trip. 

    These sessions promise to be lively - with comments, Q&As, creativity and laughter. Don't miss it!

    The first session will be a presentation of recent work by the guest artist. The second session will be a group sharing of participants' work inspired by the presentation.

    Around-the-house Materials and Supplies

    SESSION #1:

    • Pen/pencil and notebook/paper... for notes.
    • A couple of your favorite Art Travel Journals***

Place the photo on your desktop... or however it is accessible when on Zoom. When you want to show it/them, Split or Share Screen, so that the viewers see a clear, steady image you can “talk to”.

    • Sketch Paper of your choice
    • Pen/pencil/scissors?/ruler? glue-stick?

      More about the instructor Jane Stafford:

      Jane began weaving at the age of 21, purchasing a new Fanny with the help of a chattel mortgage on her Chevette. Before two years were up she was accepted as an under-qualified, but very ambitious student at the Baniff School of Fine Arts. Two years later she was a teacher’s assistant there and, in a few more, an instructor herself.  In subsequent years, Jane has had the great fortune to be able to earn a living doing what she loves most, weaving, and sharing her passion for excellence in cloth. Jane has been both a production weaver and a workshop instructor, helping students reach their potential across the continent, for over 25 years. She was the recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2014 from Handwoven Magazine. Jane now teaches exclusively in her studio on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

      Picture of Plant based food prep-copyright N. TravisA whole food plant-based diet is a proven health winner!  Sometimes the barrier for people to adopt this way of eating can be figuring out how to prepare simple yet delicious, healthy meals without spending the day in the kitchen. Chef Nancy Travis will teach you that meal prep, kitchen organization and careful shopping is the answer. There is no “one way for everyone” approach as each household has its own requirements for space, preparation time and the amount of food needed. Join plant-based chef Nancy Travis as she gives you her best tips for creating an individualized plan for quick, simple, everyday, whole food plant based meals that work for your family's needs.

      Please Note:  Foods will be determined by Nancy the day of the second class (depending what she needs to prep for her family) but recipes and resources list will be emailed after the class to all who attend. 

      Session 1: 
      In this first session (
      no cooking) you’ll go through Nancy’s kitchen (virtually) where she will show you her fridge and kitchen storage and discuss ways to set up your own kitchen for success. This includes information about kitchen essentials like appliances, equipment, pantry staples, containers, and tips for saving time.  Nancy also offers ideas for food storage for your veggies, grains and beans, with an emphasis on keeping things fresh and ready to go!  Nancy will go over different ways to prep meals depending on your family size and available time, and, how to think about creating meals in the most healthful way. Conversation will also include eating for weight loss and weight maintenance (usually fairly easy once on a plant based diet!).  

      Session 2 (note this session starts at a different time than first session): 
      The second session will be cooking and prepping demonstration where Nancy will put together a variety of foods to be used for meals or meal components.  You’ll gain ideas for easy ways to put together prepped foods to create delicious meals for your family.  Learn healthy cooking techniques such as no oil sauteing, and roasting and a demonstration of both.  Nancy also teaches you the benefits of and about instant pot cooking and air frying.  

      Foods will be determined by Nancy the day of the class (depending what she needs to prep for her family) but recipes and resources list will be emailed after the class to all who attend. 

      During class there will be time for questions and discussion about meal prep as well as how to maintain a healthy whole food plant based diet.

      Picture of Plated Kimchi with Soft boiled egg on topFusion foods are found in every corner of our lives today, even the old standby of Fish & Chips was developed as a fusion food, combining Jewish, French, and Belgian cuisine. When Shibaguyz first tried Kimchi Fried Rice with Kalua Pork they had no idea it would be something so special that they learned how to make it themselves just so they could have it whenever they were overtaken by the craving to have it! Just think of it… the tart bite of the kimchi mixed with the rich, salty/smokey, savory flavor of the slow roasted pork. All mixed up together with a savory sauce over perfectly fried rice then finished with a topper of a soft poached egg that breaks and drizzles its yolk-y richness throughout the dish as you take your first bite. 

      If this  makes you wish you had your own big bowl of Kimchi Fried Rice with Kalua Pork, join the Shibaguyz on Zoom LIVE from their home  kitchen and they will  take you through the steps of making this craveable perfect fusion of flavors for yourself… or your family if you are willing to share!

      This is a live, virtual hands-on cooking class from the comfort of your own kitchen. The Shibaguyz will make cooking fun, interactive, as well as hands on. Follow along, ask questions, interact with others just like you would if you were in the BARN Kitchen.

      If you’ve ever wanted to make any of the beautiful geometric patterns found on Japanese fabric, this is the class for you. We provide the tools to teach you the basic motifs and techniques, which you can later apply to your own alterations, textile beautification, quilting, and, of course, visible mending.

      Session 1 - HITOMEZASHI SASHIKO ESSENTIALS - 2 hours

      Welcome to the world of "One-Stitch" Sashiko! Sashiko, the Japanese hand-stitching technique for patching and reinforcing fabric, is the hot “new” trend in crafts and fashion. Hitomezashi Sashiko creates beautiful geometric patterns, and we'll teach you the most essential motifs, which you can later apply to almost any and every project!

      Session 2 - MOYOUZASHI SASHIKO ESSENTIALS - 2 hours

      Welcome to the fluid lines and complex designs of Moyouzashi Sashiko! Join the slow stitching and visible mending movements with this Moyouzashi Sashiko class. Moyouzashi – a version of the sashiko running stitch that is worked in curves or straight lines to create beautiful motifs representing traditional images from Japanese art such as waves, coins, and repeating geometric patterns — is a perfect addition to fabric alterations, clothing enhancements, and especially, quilting.

      How clearly can you see your own work? In this class, you’ll learn how a professional developmental editor evaluates the “big picture” effectiveness of a novel—including plot, characterization, setting, pacing, and craft—and how to apply that same perspective to your own work. We’ll explore specific questions you can ask as you’re re-reading your work, exercises to help you see your work from a fresh perspective, common issues that trip up writers, and a few tips and tricks to help you tackle revisions. This is also a valuable class for anyone in a critique group who wants to provide clearer feedback to their writing partners.

      Attendees will…

      • Be challenged to consider their work from a fresh, outsider perspective.
      • Gain a checklist of impartial questions to help them evaluate specific aspects of their work in progress.
      • Understand the process of developmental editing.
      • Learn tools that will help you as beta readers and critique partners.

          Vegie Pulao & FrittersMadhu Prakash will be teaching you a 3 course typical Indian family meal. Vegetable Pulao is an easy, one pot meal that is a popular dish from her region. Full of nourishing spices and vegetables and topped with herbed yogurt dip, and raita. This dish just might become your new Indian favorite. Madhu will also be teaching you how to make delicious fried potato fritters and then finish class with a refreshing mango lassi (a drink that can double as dessert}. You’ll think you traveled to India as the scent of these foods fill your home while you cook...then...eat and enjoy! Note: These are not dairy free recipes. We will use butter and yogurt but you can adapt to vegan by avoiding dairy in this recipe. Another variation of this recipe would be to add marinated chicken or lamb in place of the veggies.
