Liquid Fire: Live bronze pour

Ever wonder where that metal fork comes from? Metallurgy dates back to 5500 BC (perhaps even earlier) and despite the application of modern technologies, the process of transforming molten metals into hard, static objects has not changed much. Participants will witness skilled artisans harness the element of fire to transform a piece of bronze from a solid to a liquid, and then back again into a work of art! *Kids welcome.

Date: May 6, 7:30-9:30pm
Location: 4850 S Pacific Hwy., Phoenix, OR
Cost: FREE


take this job and chèvre It!Simple Cheesemaking & Tasting (Two-Part Series)

From the udder to the supermarket, the process of cheesemaking is a science AND an art with a history as complex as a cave-aged Roquefort. Part 1 of this class, is a cheese tasting of raw chèvre at Kindred Spirits along with your favorite glass of wine. Part 2, hosted by Pi Creamery at Lazy T Ranch in Talent, allows participants to try their hand at milking a goat, help out with the early processes of crafting a cheese, and get a sense of the rhythms and artistry behind making a good cheese. At the end, we'll whip up a batch of fresh ice cream for all to share. *Kids welcome.
