    Try it Workshop: Pole Dance

    Pole Dance combines strength, flexibility, athleticism, poise, and dance all into one confidence boosting activity. If you've ever wanted to try Pole Dance, this workshop is for you! We are looking for a small group of blind and visually impaired adults to attend a private class at San Francisco Pole and Dance where you will learn the basics of pole dance in a safe and supportive environment. Because of this wonderful partnership, we can offer this class at the very low cost of ten dollars. This class is open to everyone, all genders are welcome. Please RSVP right away by calling or emailing Amber Sherrard at asherrard@lighthouse-sf.org or (415)-694-7353. Space is very limited.

    18 Reasons, a food education non-profit, wants to empower you with the confidence and creativity needed to buy, cook, and eat good food every day. Cooking Matters is a six-week course in cooking and nutrition, developed by Share our Strength. Led by a chef, a nutritionist, and other knowledgeable staff, we will guide you through the ins and outs of cooking delicious, healthy foods on a budget. Eating fresh and healthy doesn't have to break your bank and 18 Reasons will show you how to stretch your grocery dollar without sacrificing flavor or your health. Registration for the entire six-week course is free, with a required $30 deposit due prior to the first class and returned upon attendance at a minimum of 4 classes. Attending less than 4 classes will result in forfeiture of deposit. Basic kitchen confidence is prerequisite. Program includes course materials, in-class recipe ingredients, and take-home groceries every week for you to play with at home. Note that class 5 will take place off-site and you will be responsible for transportation to the alternate location (Safeway at 2020 Market St.). Please also be advised that you will need to arrive one hour early for both the first and last classes to accommodate intake and evaluation procedures. Spots in this fun and educational cooking class series are limited, so secure your participation by contacting Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at solsen@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7316 to register. Deadline to register is Monday, August 5th.

    Knitting


    Aug 22

    Every week, our knitters gather to share their purls of wisdom and get in the loop on each other’s latest project, and usually end up in stitches spinning yarns. Whether you knit for pleasure, distraction or just practical economics, or you’ve never done it before and want to give it a try, there’s always room for another loom. Learn, refine, or teach a skill that makes your gift-giving budget lighter weight or support a student-led altruistic project like knitting chemo caps, beanies for babies, lap blankets or other creative applications.

    For more info, needle Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at solsen@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7316.
