We’ll read a few books, swap stories (or clothes) and hang out!
This event is free and open to the public (but you’re welcome to stick a couple of bucks in the tip jar to help support the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.)
Join Winslow Squirrel Jam for an evening of music in the front room at Ozark Folkways. Bring an instrument, a singing voice, or just be prepared to do a little toe-tapping and hand-clapping. The songs are all familiar favorites, and lyrics and chord symbols will be projected on the big screen; everybody is encouraged to join in!
Most of the jammers have only been playing their instruments for a couple of years or less, so this is not a group that is going to intimidate a beginner — at the same time, experienced players will find themselves in a welcoming environment where their ability is recognized and appreciated. There’s something for everybody.
If you like, bring a snack and a beverage; this is not a concert, but rather a gathering of friends and neighbors looking to enjoy an evening of music and good company.
Admission is free to the public, although we encourage you to drop a few bucks in the tip jar to help pay the bills. For more information, just give us a call at 479-634-3791 or email us at email@example.com.
You asked for it, you got it! For those of you who were unable to make it to the last one, Amy is repeating her “Intro to Soapmaking” workshop!
Join Northwest Arkansas artist Amy Leisure and learn the basics of making old fashioned lye soap just like your grandma used to make!
With over 23 years of experience creating hand crafted, boutique quality soaps, Amy will guide you on how to make soap using readily available and affordable materials and ingredients. Class participants will learn the basics of saponification and how to easily and safely combine ingredients found in your own home kitchen. From there you will add botanicals, herbs and fragrances to make each batch your own special creation!
Amy puts the fun into foam and takes the fear out making your own soap. You too can become a soap maker!
You will leave with two bars of soap ($14 value), a handout with the recipe used, helpful websites, and how to formulate your own recipe.
Tickets are $40 per person and include all instruction and materials and two bars of handmade soap. The event will be limited to 10 participants — adults only, please! Tickets are non-refundable. (In the event that you are unable to use your ticket we will make every effort to resell your ticket and refund your money, but if we can’t find someone to purchase the seat, there will be no refund.)
Herbs have long been added to food not only for their flavor, but for their benefits on the body.
Come learn how to turn your everyday kitchen spices and foods into great-tasting, health-supporting extracts and blends. We’ll also talk about harvesting and preserving herbs for maximum flavor and potency. There will be a demonstration and some free samples.
Tickets are $15 per person and include materials and samples. The event will be limited to 15 participants. Tickets are non-refundable. (In the event that you are unable to use your ticket we will make every effort to resell your ticket and refund your money, but if we can’t find someone to purchase the seat, there will be no refund.)
