    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.

    241306 - Writing Your Memoirs

    You don't need to have a hardscrabble youth
    or eccentric parents to write a memoir. You
    don't need to have lived a life of drama . . . and
    you don't have to publish it. A memoir is about
    handing over your life to someone and saying,
    “This is what I went through, this is who I am,
    and maybe you can learn something from it.”
    It’s about creating a legacy that doesn’t have
    dollar signs in front of it but has a far greater
    residual value for family and friends. It’s a gift
    that only you can share. Let author Linda Wade
    help you put pen to paper and begin to tell your
    story. Ages 50+. Registration deadline: April

    242032 - Return of the Rag Rug

    Rag rug making is just one of many “forgotten
    skills of self-sufficiency” used by pioneers on
    the frontier. Like many others, it has returned
    more as a hobby than a necessity. The rag rug is
    made from long strips of fabric that are braided,
    coiled and sewn into a flat spiral. They can be
    solid color, multi-colored, circular, square, left
    with ragged edges or seamed for a neater finish.
    They are a great way to use fabric scraps and, as
    the pioneers can attest, they make great rugs.
    For a Blue Jean Rag Rug you will need to bring 5
    pairs of worn out jeans. For the Rag Rug you will
    need to bring old clothes, sheets or long scraps
    of fabric. If you have a portable sewing machine,

    242903 - Chair Seat Caning

    It is very common for a cane chair to start losing
    its caning long before the frame itself begins
    to deteriorate. If you have a chair that's in good
    shape structurally, you can replace the cane
    yourself and return the chair to its former glory.
    Painting or varnishing the frame should be done
    in advance, if needed, and your chair must be
    stripped of cane and have holes around the seat
    area. We'll provide the cane and the instruction
    necessary to complete your chair seat by the
    end of the 5 week class. (Please note: This class
    overlaps with the Chair Recovery class for an
    hour.) A supply list will be provided when you
    register and can also be found on our website
    at www.fortwayneparks.org. Instructor Larry
    Brooks has been reupholstering furniture for
    over 26 years and operates his own shop. Call
