As my favorite developmental psychologist will tell you: a good way to fight off the effects of aging on the brain is to try learning new things. Now, before you go disassembling the family car or joining the rodeo, let me suggest something a little simpler. Felting! Hey, I never said it couldn’t be something fun, relaxing, and community-building.
Michele and Heidi will make it easy for you to get started. They’ll set up supplies in a non-threatening environment, gently guide you in felting basics, and even grease the social wheels with coffee and snacks as you and 14 other adults chat, laugh, and maybe poke each other with needles. You’ll go home with a felted hat, stocking, or small bag of your own creation… and a younger mind. Doctor’s orders.
Afternoon of Saturday, November 5 at Tandem.
The hottest trend in jewelry is bohemian-style, beaded drop earrings. In this fun workshop, participants choose from a huge variety of natural, glass and metal beads to design three pairs of earrings, then learn the skills needed to connect their designs to fishhook-style backs. Snacks and conversation round out the experience. Vonnie's house, 2335 Cumberland Road, Charlottesville 22901. Ages 10 & up. Exact date tbd by Spring Party.
They had me at “coffee.”
But, for those of you who might require a bit more from your evening out, there is more… much more…
Such as a thick topping of whipped cream drizzled with caramel… or a hint of vanilla in your latte… and did I mention the coffee is going to be from Starbucks??
Oh, you meant you wanted more than just coffee? OK -- how about the entire galaxy? You’ll ponder the insignificance of a single bean of kopi luwak as you gaze into the Milky Way (No, the actual Milky Way, not the chocolately, caramelly creamy deliciousness that is a Milky Way Mocha …although the beauty of this event is that you can gaze into that, too) from UVA’s McCormick Observatory.
As the caffeine courses through your veins you’ll receive stimulation for your brain, too, as expert astronomers tell you all about what you are looking at. You are actually guaranteed to go home smarter. And, the next time the daily trivia question at Starbucks concerns the Orion Nebula, you're all over it.
Experience for seven Tandem students: We will meet at the Tandem parking lot at 8 pm and return between 10:45 and 11 pm on Friday, May 13.
You gotta go where you wanna go...Do what you wanna do... With whoever you wanna do it with... And I’m telling you, you wanna go to this moms’-night-out where The Mamas meet The Tapas with rockin’ hosts Sarah Bedford, Chinta Gaston, Laurel Henneman, Joanne LaMotte, and Ruth Ellen Outlaw, plus Tandem friends old and new.
I know it’s hard to believe, but you are not California Dreamin’! This evening includes amazing drinks, hand-crafted tapas, an opportunity to build community, and I’m guessing some very fun music -- all in support of a great cause that you can still feel good about come Monday Monday.
Join us at Sarah’s house down in Creeque Alley, 1863 Winston Road. Thursday, May 5, 6-8 pm. Women only.
Little bites, Mama Cass, little bites…
