Writer’s Choice: Get Cultured This Week with Cooking, Knitting, Art

Take a break from all the serious learning on campus and catch up on some culture this week. On Monday, stop by the Spirit Room in downtown Fargo to view the eclectic exhibit “Birds, Wings & Sky.” Try a new hobby on Tuesday by joining knitters at the West Fargo Public Library for some craft time at Knitty Giddy. Make some gourmet magic on Wednesday at the Neopolitan Pizza Cooking Class. Between these three events, students are sure to find something new to try. Who knows, you might even impress your friends with your newfound skills.

Monday, Sept. 22: “Birds, Wings & Sky” Traveling Exhibit

The Spirit Room downtown is known for their unique classes and cool exhibits. Visit 1- 5 p.m. to catch a glimpse of the latter, a poem and mosaic collaboration by artists Norma Wilson and Nancy Losacker. While there, students might even find a class to join, like Vinyassa Yoga or Indian Dance. Just be prepared to soak in some of the new-age vibes that permeate the place. The Spirit Room is located at 111 Broadway. Find the red door located between Moxie Java and Swanson Health Products and go upstairs. Contrary to the name, it is more than just one room, but signage should point you in the right direction.

Tuesday, Sept. 23: Knitty Giddy @ West Fargo Public Library

It is never too late to learn a new activity. Grab some yarn and needles and head to this free event at the West Fargo Public Library for a little shared crafting time. This event starts at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room on the upper level of the library. It is open to new and experienced knitters and crocheters. They do suggest beginners bring larger needles, as they are easier to start with. If you start now, you will have plenty of time to finish a hat or scarf before it gets chilly out! The library is at 109 Third St. E. in West Fargo.

Wednesday, Sept. 24: Neopolitan Pizza Cooking Class

Ever wanted to find your inner chef or impress your roommates with your culinary skills? Then drop by Square One Kitchens to catch a class on making pizza from scratch. Taught by chef Randall Toenges, the two-hour course covers dough, sauce and toppings with a focus on personal taste. They will even teach you how to throw the dough in the air like a pro, and how to keep it in the freezer for those days when cooking feels like a chore. Frankly, nothing pre-made beats the fresh stuff. Buh-bye, freezer section! Doors open at 6 p.m., and the class starts at 6:30 p.m.. Square One Kitchens is located at 1407 First Ave. N. in Fargo.
