    I’ll paint ceramics with you! I might be interested in cooking class depending on what you cook.

      There are 2 cooking class places I know of: Gaynors http://www.gaynorsschoolofcooking.com/
      and Chop Walk & Talk http://chopwoktalk.com/
      also Habitat has cooking classes from time to time, and Dozen has been talking about doing some classes. I don’t have anything in mind in particular yet, although I’d probably rather take a class on some kid of cooking I’m not familiar with.
