Cool fun in the summertime...
be a Remick Apprentice!


New! Remick Apprentice Program



These mini-immersion programs provide real, fresh learning experiences!
Whether it’s their long-time interest, or a new interest altogether, spending two days learning skills related to a Remick-related subject just may be your child’s favorite activity of the summer. Sign up for one or more sessions.


PROGRAM 1 | July 19 & 20: Can it!
Apprentices learn about food preservation and how to save the summer harvest while experimenting with sweet and savory concoctions in the kitchen. Thursday's class is all about fruit as students make jam, jelly, and more using fruit picked in the Remick gardens. On Friday, create pickles and relishes using freshly picked produce. Each day participants go home with goodies to share, along with a recipe book to try preserving at home. Pre-registration required by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, July 16. 

PROGRAM 2 July 26 & 27: Future Chefs
During this program, Apprentices work in the commercial kitchen while thinking of healthy menus, creating a simple budget, preparing food, finding recipes, practicing good food safety, and then enjoying a meal/dish together. Sauté, bake and boil, use kitchen tools, learn basic knife skills, how to prepare meats and vegetables for a recipe, and how to use what is local and fresh—it’s cooking, soup to nuts. Future Chefs will practice cooking during Thursday’s class and baking will be the theme on Friday. Recipes used in the program will be provided so they can be tried at home. Pre-registration required by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, July 23.

PROGRAM 3 | August 2 & 3: The Budding Herbalist 
Budding Herbalists forage for wild edibles, make yummy snacks and useful remedies, and recognize plants by scent, feel and sound. Stay tuned—more details to come. Pre-registration required by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, July 30. 

PROGRAM 4 | August 16 & 17: All About Textiles
In this program, Apprentices begin by visiting the dye garden and learn how different plants make different dye colors. After selecting two or three dye colors they learn to dye wool. As the dyed wool is drying, students learn to card and spin yarn using a spinning hook and drop spindles. The history of wool in England, the American colonies, and how a spy named Francis Cabot Lowell started the Industrial Revolution in America will be covered, as will breeds of sheep. Apprentices will weave a bookmark, be creative with needle felting, work on a small hooked rug project, and learn a few knitting stitches: knit, purl, rib, and how to cast on and cast off. Pre-registration required by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 13. 

Cost: $75 members; $95 non-members
Each session takes place from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. and is suitable for apprentices ages 12-16. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required by the date provided in each session’s description. Call 603-323-7591 to register.
