    227051 - Forest Bathing (Shinrin-Yoku)

    Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is the experience
    of immersing oneself in the sensory gifts
    of nature. This can be done in a forest setting,
    but also in gardens and parks. The benefits are
    not only a greater sense of well-being, but a
    boost in immune function and ready access
    to lower stress hormones and boosts in serotonin
    levels. This is not your regular walk in the
    park, but a series of invitations using the senses
    to rediscover your inner child and your connection
    with the natural world. Being relaxed,
    revitalized, and better equipped to handle the
    stresses of daily living are the goals of this forest
    bathing walk. Instructor Christy Thomson is
    a life-long resident of northeast IN. She is the
    only certified forest therapy guide in Indiana
    and is thrilled to share this opportunity with
    the Fort Wayne community. Registration deadlines:
    April 6 and May 18. Ages 18+. Min. 5.
    Max. 15.

    341304 - Curious about Crochet

    One of the greatest things about crochet is that
    you don't have to invest in fancy, new materials
    or find room in your house to store a bunch
    of equipment. With just a simple hook, a skein
    of yarn and a nice, comfy place to sit, you can
    begin enjoying all the benefits this craft provides.
    In the Beginner Class, we'll get you
    started with a few basic stitches and show you
    how to read a pattern. You'll leave this class with
    a Granny Square lap afghan and a new hobby.
    Please bring to class a size K crochet hook and
    one skein of 4-ply yarn in a light color. (Once
    you've learned to crochet, join us on Wednesdays
    10:00-12:00 p.m. and Fridays 1:00-3:00
    p.m. for Hooked on Crochet.) The Advanced
    Class is for those who know the basic stitches
    and can read a basic pattern. You will learn
    advanced stitches to crochet stand-up flowers
    and make advanced stitches for afghan and pillows.
    Bring your "yarn stash" (especially green
    for the leaves) and hooks. Instructor: Berniece
    Wilkins. Ages 50+. There will be no class on
    September 29. Registration deadlines are one
    week prior to the beginning of each class. Min.

    342016 - Beginning Glass Fusing

    If you apply heat to glass, it will soften. If you

    more fluid and flow together. Two or more

    other. When the right kind of glass is heated
    and then cooled properly, the resulting fused
    glass piece will be solid and unbroken and
    can be quite beautiful if you know what you
    are doing. Beginners will create a fused glass
    gem and a 4'' glass plate while learning about
    basic glass fusing. More experienced students
    may bring an additional $20 on the first night
    of class and create a 10''-12'' bowl or plate.

    additional costs, which can vary depending
    on your choice of glass. All necessary materials
    will be provided. Ages 16+. Instructor: Juanita
