La Crescent-Hokah Community Education is featuring these upcoming learning opportunities.

Essential Oils in the Kitchen

What a great time of year to add some spice to your life. Did you know that some Essential Oils can replace a lot of the spices in your kitchen? And they don’t expire. Come learn about all the creative ways essential oils can be used in the kitchen from beverages to desserts and breakfast to appetizers and dinner.

We’ll be making some flavorful salts as well as infused olive oils that can be used on protein, salads or snacks. If extra product is available, you can make additional bottles (for $5 each) to keep for yourself or give away as gifts. Wrap it up with a recipe and you’ve got your Secret Santa or special teacher taken care of.

Recipes, two oils and one salt will be included in the cost of the class.

The book “Back Porch” Cooking Guide will be available for $5 each. This book would make a nice gift to go with your infused oil and salt. Please let us know if you would like to purchase the book, when registering for the class.

Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. in FACS room 72, La Crescent High/Middle School.

Clay-xploration for grades 1-4

Your imagination is the limit while you work with soft, easy-to-mold clay. Kids will create a story to tell. Using stop-motion animation technology, along with some imagination, their story will come to life. Students will bring home their clay masterpieces for reusable fun.

Space is limited.

Sewing Machine Basics for Beginners: Ages: Middle School, High School, Adult

In this class, you will learn basic sewing machine skills such as winding a bobbin, threading the machine, changing a needle, sewing a straight stitch, and sewing a backstitch. To practice what you learn, we’ll be making hot/cold pack rice bags. These are great for sore or injured muscles or even for warming up on a cold winter’s night without turning your heater up. If you own a sewing machine, feel free to bring it along with your own machine’s accessories (like the manual and bobbins). An advantage to bringing your own sewing machine to practice these basic skills with is that every sewing machine make and model is slightly different, and the ones we provide may be different from what you own.

Bring 1/2 yard of fleece (not textured like Soft & Minky brand) and one spool of coordinating all-purpose polyester thread.

We furnish these Supplies: Sewing machine and accessories; white rice

You will receive an online access code approximately one month before the scheduled hands-on class to allow you plenty of time to complete the online content. You will need to print your certificate of completion and present it at the time of the hands-on class.
