Pybus University Winter Quarter Classes Announced

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; the classes are practical and playful,” said Katja Rowell, Pybus University coordinator. “We have something for everyone; from avoiding colds and flu, orcas and salmon, bee keeping , tax planning, and knitting, to avoiding foot pain, updating your will, business start-ups, dahlias and taking care of you parents,” added Rowell.
