Saturday Smorgasbord of Classes

Looking for something to do tomorrow? Try one of the many educational classes and events taking place around town Saturday -- everything from herb gardening to Asian bridal fashions. Here are a few options:
  • Herb gardens -- Learn how to plant herbs; 2 p.m. at Smith & Hawken; free.
  • Stepping stone workshop -- Learn how to make a decorative stepping stone; 10 a.m. Saturday at Garfield Park Conservatory; $5 (includes materials).
  • Wire sculpting -- Make two pendants and learn basic wire-working techniques; 10 a.m. Saturday at Bead Boutique (Carmel); $50 (includes materials).
  • Asian festival -- Starting at 11 a.m., the Garfield Park pagoda will play host to an Asian festival, which features food, cultural entertainment, vendors and even a bridal fashion show; free.
  • Home improvement -- Don't forget the Home Depot workshops on topics such as container gardening and laying tile. See previous post for details.
  • Cooking -- The Chef's Academy is offering a class on fish identification and cookery; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; $75.

I'm not listing any classes for Sunday, because you should be very busy pampering your mother (or being pampered by your kids).
