Summer School at Ingebretsen’s

By Carstens Smith

July/August craft classes

Common theme; learn a craft at relaxed class meeting only one or two times. Then go home and practice more on your deck, at the beach, or in front of a fan with a glass of ice tea.


  • basics of chain maille,
  • wheat weaving,
  • weaving an elbow basket,
  • and Nordic cuisine from farmer’s market finds.

Homemade Holiday gifts need to start in the summer. Make an item you can use immediately, then later add some holly berries or a touch of rosemaling, for a Hoiday gift. Elbow basket teacher,Patricia Quinn, says, “This is a versatile design. You can hang it on your front door or fill it with fresh or dried flowers adapting to any season or decor.” Students will complete a basket during the 3-hour class and can purchase materials to make more.

Food historian Patricia Johnson will teach a class merging the principles of Nordic cuisine with seasonal vegetables and fruits from our neighborhood treasure, the Midtown Farmer’s Market–a hands-on session. Patricia is a guest blogger for Chef Marcus Samuelson’s web site.

Making lefse is usually a winter class, since the potato flatbread is a traditional Holiday food. But for those who want to simplify their holiday schedule: a lefse-making class Wednesday, August 7. A grilled hotdog tastes great wrapped in lefse, so new lefse cooks can use new skills immediately.
