Bead Trunk Show and more summer news//
Come paint a bisque wine glass (that’ll we’ll fire for you to pick up later), enjoy some snacks and good friends, and learn about using all your senses to evaluate wines.
Nothing beats learning about wines like “sensory evaluation,” the process of using all five of your senses to develop an appreciation for one of the true miracles of nature.
Wine Guru David King will be on hand with several varieties to taste and help us figure out what our senses are telling us!
Check out his blog here. – http://kingdr13.wordpress.com/2011/08/18/crafty/
Cost is $40 and must be prepaid (or $45 for the larger wine goblet).
Call 379-0730 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
