Hooch 101: Artisanal Cocktails With Bay Area Booze $54


We are so lucky to live in one of the greatest booze regions in North America, with more distilleries, wineries and bars than you can shake a muddler at. So let’s toast ourselves and our fabulous fortune shall we?

In this class, you will make 3 amazing drinks, all with locally distilled spirits--and not just from the big boys. We track down some of our favorite local small batch distilleries and make some tasty libations using the products of their craftsmanship.

A little background history about the booze trade in SF is also thrown in for good measure to impress those out of town friends.
 
You’ll learn the essential techniques to crafting great cocktails - how to mix, muddle, shake, and stir properly. You will also learn how to balance every flavor that goes into making the perfect drink.
 
The price of class includes everything, including some rare and expensive liquors. You will walk out with a recipe booklet, a list of Gillian’s favorite go to watering holes in the city and the know how to dazzle your peeps next time you entertain and know a lot more about some epic Bay Area booze options and what makes them so great.

Teacher bio:
Gillian Fitzgerald is part owner and full badass bartender at Virgil’s Sea Room. She learned the basics of booze as a wee lass in Ireland, and has been perfecting her skills on the San Francisco bar scene since 2008. One of our favorite teachers, Gill has been know to earn cult following from her classes, offer a mid class dance off and just moves with the speed of a cougar when she’s working at her bar. She really knows her booze and cocktail making, as well as a lot about the SF cocktail scene from dive bars to fancy cocktail spots. She is 100% fun and doesn’t have a lick of stuck up cocktail snob in her--though she can make them like a champ.

We’re going to take advantage of the fact that it’s Sunday and do an extended "From the Farm to the Jar" session with a field trip to the lovely Divisadero Farmers Market. We’ll meet at Workshop, then stroll down to the Market where we will choose some veggies to pickle in class. (You’re also encouraged to bring some cash and get some fresh goodies for yourself to take home.) We’ll go through what to look for when you’re buying fresh veggies, talk to some farmers, and it’ll be a fun start with some sunshine & shopping for this extended special version of our pickling class!

354 5th St, San Francisco, CA 94103

Intro & Tools class: Looking to embrace your inner lumberjack? Join Christopher, of Wood Thumb in SOMA, for an evening of woodworking where we"ll cover basic tools and techniques, and you"ll go home with a finished product, a wooden bottle opener. For this class we ll delve a bit more into the basics and tools and keep the project a bit simpler and start on your woodworking projects at home. Stop buying your gifts when you can learn to make them! Or proudly boast about the wooden creations you made around your house.


teacher bio: Wood Thumb was started by two brothers, Christopher and David, who set out to make a living by building beautifully designed products that embody sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity. For the holidays growing up, their gifts always needed to be handmade which led to the creative, maker lifestyle they lead today. They"re self-taught woodworkers who have really mastered the craft from the years of custom work and running Wood Thumb. We have enjoyed their awesome wooden fold up booth at Renegade Craft Fair for years and amazing wooden bow ties (we even spied Questlove in one a few weeks ago).

supplies & pre-requisites:
None! This is an intro class, but we"ll be doing more advanced classes in the future. Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring an apron or we can supply one for you. (Did we ever mentioned sawdust makes one sexy cologne and makes a great dry hair shampoo...haha)

Screen Printing For Newbies $45
/

Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative! 

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. It does not come with your own screens or artwork, however you can buy one with your ticker and have it ready for class for an extra fee. In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

supplies needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print. 

PLEASE NOTE OUR 48 HOUR CANCELLATION/ REBOOK POLICY. All classes are for adults 18 and over.

Screen Printing For Newbies  $45
/

Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative! 

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. It does not come with your own screens or artwork, however you can buy one with your ticker and have it ready for class for an extra fee. In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet. 

supplies needed:
 none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.
