Pybus University Announces Winter Quarter Classes

Pybus Market has announced its winter quarter classes held Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. from Jan. 9 through March 20 on unique topics for the general public.

Classes are free, unless otherwise indicated. Some classes have size limits, noted on each class description. Classes are generally located in front of the Cashmere Valley Bank Community Kitchen. Classes are taught by local volunteers with an interest and aptitude in the subject. The public is invited to register for as many — or as few — classes as they like.

“Pybus University is about life-long learning, and it’s practical and playful,” said Katja Rowell, Pybus University coordinator. “We hope to have something for everyone; from travel tips, creating art, staying connected through social media, and fall prevention, to wine tasting, and decreasing wildfire risk,” added Rowell.

To register for any of the eleven classes, complete the online registration form on the Pybus Market website:
