Monkey Puzzle Workshop in Eastsound Square on Orcas Island

Osa says:  Precious Metal Clay is magic. Actually it is an industrial automotive invention. Yet in the hands of creativity, it is magic. I will never forget the moment I turned 'clay into silver ,mud into metal.'

In this basic PMC class we will be making a pendant and earrings while learning the basics of working with precious metal clay. You will leave with the ability to set up a small home studio with minimal investment and create to your heart's content. Or...simply leave class with some great jewelry.

Good Food

Something remarkable is happening in the fields and orchards of the Pacific Northwest.  Small family farmers are making a comeback.  They’re growing much healthier food, and lots more food per acre, while using less energy and water than factory farms. For decades Northwest agriculture was focused on a few big crops for export. But to respond to climate change and the end of cheap energy, each region needs to produce more of its own food and to grow food more sustainably.  Good Food visits producers, farmers’ markets, distributors, stores, restaurants and public officials who are developing a more sustainable food system for all.  Within the context of the history of Pacific Northwest agriculture, the film features some of the places where many of the region’s vegetables, fruits, grains and animal products are produced.  Farmers and farm workers speak about their businesses, marketing, and the reasons they are committed to producing food that is healthy and environmentally-friendly.

Show Time:  7:00 p.m.

Running time: 1 hour 13 minutes
