Learn how to create your own gorgeous macrame piece!

Saturday August 24th from 9:00am-Noon

Join us in Final Assembly (located inside the Barnone Building across from The Uprooted Kitchen).

For the project you will learn the Square Knot and the Hitch Knot. The pattern will easily slide into an array of decor. It is definitely a beginners pattern but looks advanced when completed.

Meet your teacher for the class Ina:

My name is Janaina Vaughn, but I go by Ina (pronounced Eena). I come from a long line of professional artisans, ceramicists, knitters, painters, and crafters. I ran a successful Etsy business for more than 5 years, selling baby shoes and outfits. I’ve written articles and how-to’s for several craft magazines and blogs. And, I have helped develop workshops for organizations over the years as well. I also love cooking, gardening, antiques, traveling and hanging out with my family. In short, I am a maker, dreamer and collector. I find inspiration in the smallest of details and in the endless possibilities of the imagination.

Since arriving in the East Valley she has started Taste of the Tope, and conducted cooking classes, catered private dinners and large group events.  She is excited to jump back in the pop up dining scene utilizing the finest local ingredients from places like The Farm at Agritopia as well as her own garden located in the community gardens of Agritopia.

Let’s talk about grains. In today’s world of marketing, many of us have heard or read about gluten in negative context. Did you know that historically humans used to receive 80 percent of calories from grains? We grew up with grains at the base of our food pyramids and now we’re being told not to eat them. Why? We will discuss grain allergens, what happens during fermentation, compare various breads and talk about the differences in nutrition.
