Heritage Skills Workshop: Butchering & Curing @ Fort Nisqually Living History Museum
Jan 18 @ 10:30 am

Sign-up now for this heritage skills workshop to learn skills in butchering and curing methods from the 19th Century. The instructors from Farmstead Meatsmith will demonstrate traditional seam-butchery where only knives and cleavers are used.

Participants will learn how waste is completely eliminated through traditional methods. There will also be a focus on principles of traditional nitrate-free whole-muscle curing, starting bacon, prosciutto and guanciale.

Finally, the workshop will focus on basic cooking methods and how all this work ultimately serves the home table. This class is a day-long, intimate observational experience, with occasional hands-on opportunities.

Bring your own sack lunch and filming/recording devices. Ages 16+ $100, 10am-4pm. Pre-registration required.

Civil Rights Legacy Tour @ Pantages Theater
Jan 19 @ 3:00 pm

In today’s rhetoric, it can be easy to paint the “Other” in broad strokes, but what happens when the “Other” turns out to be your best friend? Thomas and Julia’s friendship is tested when one of them argues against immigration and the other reveals being undocumented. The debate heightens on the eve of a modern-day ride for immigrant rights, when they meet Ms. Vivian, a veteran of the original Freedom Rides of the 1960s. Through Vivian’s memories, the students consider how the challenges and lessons of the Civil Rights Movement could influence their actions today. With evocative dialogue, multimedia elements, and supporting curricula, this is one bus ride students will not forget. Along the way, they will think critically about the Civil Rights Movement, civic engagement, American identity, and freedom of expression in relation to the urgent issues of our own times.

“Artful Dreamers Studio changed my life! I was stuck in so many areas of my life and Nadine’s process painting helped me immensely . I started my journey almost 15 months ago and my life has shifted dramatically in only the most positive ways. Artful Dreamers is the safest most supportive place for self-exploration and deep healing. It is a place where you have permission to meet yourself wherever you are….with full permission to let go! Be messy, be wild, creative, funny, sad, afraid, whatever it is – it’s okay to FEEL! I’ve made life-long friends at Artful Dreamers and when I walk through those doors, I feel like I’ve come home.”
Thank you, Nadine for this beautiful offering! Debbie
