Pasta by Hand

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

I am enjoying the recent re-focus on food and how we grow, make and eat it.  I came across this nice project by Italian design student Valentina De Lorenzis, in which she explored the process of making new pasta shapes by hand and using homemade tools (top).

In a similar vein, the Italian design wonders at Arabeschi di Latte have hosted two pasta making workshops in Tokyo, and most recently, in London.  Visitors are invited to play with the design using an assortment of tools (left), ingredients and recipes (right).  The pasta is cooked on the spot for participants to enjoy.  Clearly, the Italians have a strong connection pasta, I wonder what Denver’s food would be?  Could be something to do with buffalo meat, but we also have western slope wines, Rocky Ford cantaloupes, green chiles and peaches.

Mid-Winter Woolly Repair Shop

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

If you are in the Denver area, my studio, Poesy&Praxis, is putting on our first event of the year, the Mid-Winter Woolly Repair Shop on Jan. 29th.  This drop-in community event is for all the folks who have never been able to part with that favorite holey sweater.  We will be celebrating repair by using simple wool felting techniques to patch up all the stained, torn and over-loved woolly items in our lives.

Join the fun and repair your woollies for winter part II.  The Mid-Winter Woolly Repair Shop will take place Saturday, January 29th from 1-3 PM at the Novo Coffee Roastery at 3008 Larimer St. in Denver.  Novo will be serving up delicious cups of joe all afternoon.  Cost is $2 per woolly item (all supplies will be provided).  We will also be repairing items to donate to local shelters, so if you have an item to give, please bring it.  We will patch them up!  All ages welcome.

If you’d like to join in please RSVP to me by Jan. 16th so we can order supplies.  This event is organized by Bean Again, Poesy & Praxis and Novo Coffee.
