The Workshop Series at Abrams Claghorn is an opportunity for the people in our community to learn more about the artists whose art is showcased in the gallery. Every artist has their own expertise and style. Each has created a workshop designed to help you learn some of their techniques and skills. No experience necessary, all levels are welcome. This is your chance to work alongside a fellow artist and to refine your skills, or to learn something new!

Brew your Own Kombucha 
$40 per student
December 13th 6:30 – 8pm

Are you a fan of kombucha? Learning to brew it yourself is easy and super cost effective. The 2,000 year old tradition has a rich history of health benefits like improving digestion, boosting energy and helping your immune system. Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that’s been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (a.k.a SCOBY).

All attendees will receive a Kombucha starter kit including: a brewing vessel, SCOBY, starter liquid, cloth cover, and illustrated instructions.

Lila will cover the history of kombucha, health benefits and how to do it at home safely.

Delicious homemade kombucha samples will be served!

About the Instructor:

Hello! I’m Lila. I work as a Holistic Nutritionist, health educator and food illustrator and writer. I believe food can be our best medicine. Food has played a major role in my own healing journey and allows me to connect with others and help them deepen their relationship with what they put in their body. I have been teaching kombucha workshops for the last 5 years and have shared my SCOBY with over 400 people. Kombucha is more than a delicious tasting drink, but also creates a beautiful interconnected web of people who continue the brewing tradition and all nourish a piece of the same original “culture.” www.lilavolkas.com
