A German Year – Cultures and Traditions
Have you ever wondered about the world of German traditions and customs beyond beer and Oktoberfest? Then this workshop is for you! We will discover a variety of German traditions that will inspire you to learn more about Germans and their culture. We will be dedicating each week to a different season of the year to explore a mix of festive, celebratory and entertaining German heritage. Amongst those traditions are festivities such as Karneval, der Maibaum, St. Martin, Krampus & St. Nikolaus.
The workshop does not require any German language skills but welcomes those of you who are studying the German language. There will be opportunities to learn more linguistic and cultural skills for everyone.
This class will meet on Sunday, February 23rd from 5-7pm. The cost is $20.
Let’s explore German culture together and perhaps take home some new ideas for you and your family!
Backe, backe Plätzchen…
This is the season – and not only here in beautiful Bend, but also in far away Germany! It is time to get busy in the kitchen to make and bake delicious treats for you and your family. The German culture has a long tradition of baking around Christmas time which ranges from Advent cookies for every level of baking skill to the sophisticated art of making Stollen.
During this workshop we will learn how to bake some of the German favorites amongst which are Vanillekipferl, Lebkuchen, Kokosmakronen, Zimtsterne and Bethmännchen.
We will meet on Friday, January 24th from 5pm – 7pm. The cost is $30.
