Veith House
3115 Veith St
Halifax, NS B3K 3G9

Come and join us in the Veith House kitchen for a workshop on pastry making! The pastry can be used for pie, or tarts, as in butter tarts. We will have aluminum pie plates and a couple of muffin pans for tarts, but please bring your own muffin pan to be on the safe sides if you would like to try tarts. Another option is to make the pie shell and take it home, unfilled and freeze it for future use. Some of the ingredients (white flour and shortening) will be supplied, but others you need to bring yourself: * a rolling pin if you have one. Or a tall tumbler. cylindrical. * about 8 apples for a pie. (I suggest MacIntosh. a tart-tasting apple is best. Absolutely no Delicious apples.) * 1 cup of brown sugar * if you are thinking of butter tarts: 1 c. brown sugar, 2 eggs, some raisins. From the assemblage of ingredients to the rolling out of the dough it will take about 45 min. The filling will take about 30 min. and the baking about 30 min. Or, alternatively one may take their pie uncooked and bake at home (350 degrees for 30-40 min.) .

Bring one of the following:
Just bring your own ingredients! (apples, sugar etc) and tools

Plan B
2180 Gottingen Street
Halifax

This workshop responds to mounting pressure for 'trigger-warnings' in classrooms, community groups, workplaces and during cultural events. In many ways, trigger warnings can help to validate and draw attention to the complexities of life after traumatic experience. However, un-critical use of the practice can also exacerbate troubling cultural tendencies to avoid and stigmatize public expression of emotion and insulate highly privileged individuals from experiencing the discomfort of identifying their privilege or appropriately responding to collective harms that they may be implicated in. Workshop participants will be asked to explore the notion of trauma-informed practice in community-based settings and to critically explore anti-oppressive responses to trauma. What does trauma-informed radical practice look like? How can we advocate for multiple, diverse and appropriate responses to trauma? How could these (multiple) practices serve broader projects of transformative justice, heal relationships and place consent and vulnerability at the center of our collective desire for a less harmful world?

Bring one of the following:
Questions

About the teacher, Prof. Ardath Whynacht

Ardath is a feminist artist-scholar who is curious about the ways in which we respond to and think about 'harm' and violence. Her doctoral research explored notions of dis/order, trauma and incarceration and she teaches and makes art with youth living as federally-sentenced offenders or as patients in secure mental health facilities. She is a PhD Candidate at Concordia University and holds a faculty appointment in Sociology at Mount Allison University. She is a founding a member of Phin Performing Arts and YOUth Against Stigma and maintains a solid committment to rabble-rousing, mischief-making and the long and difficult process of transformative justice.

Interested in drawing the human figure but feel intimidated to start? Are you drawing people from photographs and looking for new ways to breath life into your sketches? This workshop is ideal for beginner artists who may have never attended a figure drawing class before, or an artist who is looking for tips and tricks on getting more out of drawing people dynamically. Spend 2 hours exploring short pose techniques with a live (clothed) model! Our goal is to have fun exploring the figure and capturing movement, not creating perfect masterpieces. Come with your sketch pads, paper and any drawing material you prefer. Please bring your own easels and drawing benches if you have any.

What problem are you writing about, thinking about or trying to solve for your business, your workplace or initiative? To think out of the box, sometimes you need to get out of the box, or use a different box. This class will give you a unique opportunity to gain insight outside of your usual context and among a small group of peers working non-competitively on disparate issues. Design thinking is a trendy term that can be intimidating and treated as the property of swank marketing firms. Find out how you can tap into some of the same skills on your own to produce different results and generate new ideas and solutions. Students will gain a deeper understanding of problem-solving techniques and learn new mental frameworks and attitudes. You will develop a working draft of a designed solution to your problem and a self-generated list of action steps to further flesh out your solution. The “problem” that you bring may be as small or large, as practical or intangible, as parochial or vague as you wish, but be prepared, it’s size and scope may change in any direction as you come to understand it better. You are free to share aspects or ask questions about your problem or, if you prefer, keep it to yourself as you think through it and apply what you learn.

Shop Local - It Matters

Trade School Indy at 1125 Brookside Ave

Shop local! Ok, but what does “shopping locally” mean, exactly? And, probably the biggest question during these tough economic times, WHY should I shop locally when I can get a product cheaper at a chain retailer? Some reasons may be you want to keep your money in the local economy, you want to get to know makers, you want to live sustainably, you want to know where your food comes from, or you want to build a sense of community. How do you know where what you are buying comes from? What does it mean to shop local? This is an open workshop format where students are expected to do a little research before class, and then show up to share what they learned. We'll learn more about the local economy and what Indy's local economy looks like along the way!

Bring one of the following:

A 72 hour B.O.B. (or Go Bag) is a portable kit that contains items to help support an individual as far as basic comfort, sanitation, and consumption needs for up to 3 days. It is mainly used for evacuating an area from a disaster or place of danger to get to a place of safety, but can be used for many other reasons. It is kind of like an insurance policy, you hope you never need to use it, but if you have one it helps make the situation a little less stressful. Many items that go in a bug out bag you probably already own. This class will help you learn simple and inexpensive steps to put your own basic "non-advanced" B.O.B. together. It is recommended that everyone in the family should have their own personal bug out bag. if you don't have one put together, then this class would be a good place to start!

For those who have taken Problem Solving 101, on Design Thinking, but wish to further drill down on the issues, expand your thinking on it or get specific feedback, this class will give you an opportunity to share with third-party participants how you applied design thinking to your problem and where you are getting stuck. This is a chance to get direct feedback, outside your organization or effort, from people not invested in any particular outcome. Participants will gain a better understanding of why this “non-investment” is important, the value of multiple perspectives and the nature of “letting go” of the need to manage the process.
