Mem­ber Tu­ition $85. Ma­te­ri­als fee $20. His­tor­i­cally many chil­dren, par­tic­u­larly in im­pro­vised or ru­ral ar­eas, did not have ac­cess to com­mer­cially pro­duced toys, ei­ther be­cause they were not sold lo­cally or be­cause their fam­i­lies could not af­ford to pur­chase them. Nonethe­less, these chil­dren of­ten did have won­der­ful toys to play with be­cause some­one in their fam­ily or im­me­di­ate so­cial cir­cle was able to make toys for them. Par­tic­i­pants in this course will have the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate one or two (de­pend­ing on the com­plex­ity) chil­dren’s toys from wood and fin­ish with a safe food-grade preser­va­tive. The in­struc­tor will pro­vide sev­eral dif­fer­ent tem­plates to make an­i­mal or ve­hi­cle de­signs. Stu­dents can also bring their own ideas for de­signs. NOTE: Stu­dents should wear cloth­ing that is suit­able for work­ing with paints. Stu­dents are also wel­comed to bring their own tools for their Project.

Tu­ition $105. Mem­ber Tu­ition $85. Ma­te­ri­als fee $45. Herbs can trans­form ev­ery­day foods into de­li­cious meals! The dif­fer­ence be­tween spaghetti sauce and plain old to­mato sauce is oregano and a va­ri­ety of other herbs. One of the sim­plest ways to use herbs is to add them to our food. How many herbs do you use in your cook­ing? We will take a look at the herbs most of­ten used in cook­ing along with the im­por­tance of taste and tech­niques that en­hance the fla­vor of our foods. We will taste in­di­vid­ual herbs and dis­cuss which herbs pair well with what foods. This will give stu­dents the in­spi­ra­tion and con­fi­dence to add them to any of their meals at home! The in­struc­tor will also bring some­thing from her home to share with stu­dents. Adiron­dack Folk School, 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne. (518) 6962400. www.adiron­dack­folkschool.org.
