Essential Oils, Landscaping, and Sewing Among New Courses
Intrigued by aromatherapy? What about enhancing your home’s curb appeal? Interested in making your own fashions? We have expanded our repertoire of Personal Enrichment courses to provide these learning opportunities just for you.
Breathe in, breathe out … and take in the wonderful aromas! If Artisan Bread and Cooking Fundamentals courses came to mind, we understand … they are definitely accompanied by mouthwatering scents! However, our new Essential Oils for Everyday course will also engage your sense of smell and benefit you in a holistic way
In this course, you’ll explore base oils, methods of use, and blending to create recipes specific to your needs. This four-hour class will introduce methods to add essential oils to your everyday life and examine how they can heal and enhance physical and emotional well-being for you and your family. Additional topics include understanding different herb pharmacology and uses, and how to select oils based on needs, methodology and quality.
Just as essential oils can enhance your life, sprucing up your home’s exterior can also be mood-boosting. Weeds, unruly hedges, and patchy grass can be an eyesore. Our Landscaping for the Homeowner is an elegant solution for everyone ranging from landscape hobbyists to house flippers on a tight budget.
In six two-hour sessions, you will gain knowledge of plants and understand the importance of how to select them. There will also be lessons on creating beautiful planting designs, concepts of cohesion and proportion, popular softscapes and hardscapes, and working within your own parameters and budget.
Another way to create beauty in your space can be accomplished through our Sewing for the Beginner course. You’ll learn the fundamentals of garment construction and fitting, as well as sewing terminology.
Using your own sewing machine, you’ll learn techniques such as setting up and threading, winding and loading the bobbin, sewing seams, following the seam guide, adjusting stitch lengths, reversing the stitching, and changing a needle. At the end of this 5-session 3-hour course, you will complete at least one sewing project and be equipped with the knowledge and abilities for more!
