We love our hands-on programs! We encourage people to think about their relationship with food and each other. Whether we're thinking about cultural heritage or mindfulness, cooking or creating in the visual arts, food is an excellent source of inspiration, motivation, and even materials!

CrafTEA with the Art Students League of Denver
Let’s face it—making art is fun, but add cool people and delicious tea? Well, that is even more fun! Each month we pick a different theme and then explore the theme in an (informal) meetup and a workshop. CrafTEA events focus on food and creativity and we know that everyone can be creative.
Come sip tea and create something new!
Register for the upcoming CrafTEA workshops:

In partnership with the Art Students League of Denver.
Recipe Illustration Workshops
How do recipes tell the story of us? We hosted pop-up workshops at the Denver Public Library, Art Students League of Denver, and the Art Gym to explore our individual and collective relationship with recipes. Read about one of the workshops here.
You Can DOUGH it!
In four unique interactive workshops, participants explored the history, culture, and science of bread baking while learning how to make sourdough bread from scratch. Participants prioritized mindfulness practices while baking. Read more about the program here.
Co-created with Eric Pallant, author of Sourdough Culture: A History of Bread Making from Ancient to Modern Bakers.
Restaurant Love Letters
Restaurant Love Letters was a month-long program in 2021 celebrating community restaurants and food workers.
The restaurant industry was hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our program featured opportunities to share stories about comfort, loss, community, and restaurant experiences on social media and through chalk art. Learn more about the program here.
