Make Night: Pasta Making with Schola

Date: Thursday, January 19, 2017

Time: 06:00 PM–09:00 PM

Celebrate the Walters’ Italian art collection with a culinary connection to the past as we make fresh pasta with the chefs at Schola Cooking School. After learning about some of the great works from the collection, you’ll use a pasta sheeter to create a few of the old favorites—fettuccine alfredo, pappardelle with Bolognese sauce, and cheese ravioli in spinach pesto. This workshop will be held offsite at Schola Cooking School, 1005 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Make Night: Wooden Hula Hoops

Date: Thursday, May 18, 2017

Hula hoops are fun and functional, and a great excuse to feel like a kid again! Enjoy a docent-led tour of some of the Walters’ most impressive wood sculptures, and then participate in this exciting two-session Make Night workshop. Learn to build, sand, and paint your own hula-hoop using wood salvaged from deconstructed Baltimore homes with the Station North Tool Library’s Surface Project, and learn firsthand how materials can be reused in creative ways. Part two of the workshop will be held offsite on May 20 at Station North Tool Library, 417 E. Oliver Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.
