In Cambridge for a day? Get an education!

There is a wealth of high quality education here in Cambridge, and travelers to our fair city have access to that education, if only for one day. The Cambridge Center for Adult Education offers a generous list of one-time Saturday or Sunday workshops that will introduce  students to a new topic, and provide a fun, rounded experience! Looking at the course list for late Spring, early Summer, there are plenty of ideas for travelers (and locals!).

Traveling to Boston and not quite sure how to work your new SLR camera? You can take a day long workshop and pick up techniques, then, you can spend the rest of your stay capturing the sites around town. Don’t have a SLR camera, but want one? The savvy staff at Hunt’s Photo and Video will help you choose the one that suites your needs!

Do you always stop at Julia Child‘s favorite butcher, Savenor’s Market, when in Cambridge? Well, if exploring the art of carving is an interest of yours, why not attend “Butchery 101” and learn through lecture  how master butchers make the cut.

Or, how about an introductory course on Glassblowing Flowers? Coupled with a visit to the Glass Flower Collection at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, you would have a beautiful weekend.

For an extremely unique New England experience, try A Taste of Blacksmithing! What a story?! You could say you visited the home of Boston’s (most historical) silversmith Paul Revere on Saturday and then took a blacksmithing lesson on Sunday!

The suggestions could go on (for a full list, see the Cambridge Center for Adult Education website).

But before I stop, I must provide one more idea: Painting Sundays on The Charles. The city closes Memorial Drive on Sundays, so the typically congested river-side scene becomes friendly and relaxing. If you don’t have your art supplies with you, no need to worry! Stop at Utrecht Art to arm yourself with watercolors!

We are happy to have such a spectacular center for adult education enriching our community. We hope you take advantage of a class, if time allows!

Cheers,

Laurie
