March arrived wet and full of fury. We held our latest axe workshop none the less at a fantastic location. The Sorias gave us loan of the yard behind their historic Santa Barbara Luggage Store. It was perfect. Fire kept us roasty all day.
Workshop Duration: 3hrs
Our most dangerous class, in regards to participant’s stomachs. This workshop is one of our most requested. Throughout the event participants will learn to make three different cherished fried chicken recipes in a commercial kitchen and taste through a flight of whiskeys specific selected to accompany fried chicken.
Fried chicken and whiskey have a long and sorted relationship dating back through American history to pre-revolutionary times. During our workshop participants get their hands dirty and their palettes wetted. Our instructors curriculum covers the variety of breading options from wet batter to dry crumb. They will cover the ups and downs and ins and outs of hot sauce. On the whiskey side we rotate through an every changing selection of brown liquors that will give the afternoon the right level of focus.
Every participant will engage at their own comfort level, non alcoholic and vegan options are always on the menu as well.
Workshop Durration: 3hrs
Participants are guided through the assembly of an axe. Using vintage forged heads hung and wedged on new hickory handles, each participant will learn every needed step to restoring an axe. The axes are sharpened and oiled and a leather sheath is built from raw leather and copper rivets.
Each participant will be invited to split some wood with the refurbished axe.
We have been working for years with each other to create great experiences for participants all around the country. Years of perfecting our craft and developing language for communicating unique skill-sets to people has finally paid off. This is the result, the formation of a workshop co-op.
