The Casper College Community Education Department offers fun courses for December, including “Instant Pot Swiss Favorites” and “Ornament Felting.”

“Instant Pot Swiss Favorites” is taught by Kat Bohr-Buresh, who will help students learn how to use electric pressure cookers. “The Instant Pot can help you cook delicious meals in minutes instead of hours,” said Bohr-Buresh. The class will explore Swiss cuisine and make savory, flavor-packed entrees, side dishes, and desserts, including traditional schnitz und drunder, rübli-torte, and more. Supplies are provided for “Instant Pot Swiss Favorites,” which will occur on Saturday, Dec. 2, and run from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Explore the unique and versatile medium of felting, the art of sculpting wool with specialty needles, in “Ornament Felting,” taught by Kelsy Lempka. “Learn about needle felting tools and basic techniques, including puncturing or ‘stabbing’ the wool fibers together. Create a 2-D and a 3-D felted ornament and enjoy the calming effect of this craft,” said Lempka. Supplies are provided. “Ornament Felting” will occur on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, Dec. 4, 5, and 7 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Community Education Coordinator Zhanna Gallegos reminds everyone that they can “share the joy of the season by treating their loved ones to the gift of knowledge. Community education gift certificates are available in any amount and redeemable for any community education class, tuition, and fees.”

“When someone gets involved with community education, they open the door to a world filled with exciting and enriching experiences! From unleashing their inner artist to becoming a kitchen wizard, getting fit, or diving into the digital age, we’ve got classes for all tastes and ages,” said Gallegos. “Explore new passions, acquire awesome skills, and embark on a journey of self-improvement with Community Education at Casper College,” she added.
