From access CVU press release
Happy New Year! We are excited to share that the Winter/Spring semester of Access CVU, YOUR destination for community education based out of CVU High School, is ready to launch! With over 170 classes offered, and more being added monthly, there’s something for everyone.
Some things of note:
• We have a new jewelry series with Cathy LeClair starting with a Hammered Heart pendant in February, and continuing with four unique bracelet and earring projects.
• Strength and cardio training is back by popular demand!
• Are you looking to improve the relationships in your life, perhaps with yourself or your children? Join Beth Martell as she offers several great options.
• Are you a maker looking for a new project? We have new classes that include Turning a Wooden Pen, Building an Adirondack Chair, Sewing a Cute & Practical Tote Bag, or Quilting Using Foundation Paper Piecing.
• Cooking classes are expanding with new instructors and topics, including Tourtiere (the French-Canadian meat pie that makes for a delicious winter meal), or learning to make your own Sourdough Bread.
Below is a list of classes offered during February, organized by category. All classes meet in-person at CVU, with the exception of a handful of online classes (identified with an “*”) which will meet over Zoom or Google Meet.
