X14100: Quarantine Cooking with Nature in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Stuck in isolation? Looking to upgrade your doomsday homemade food skills? Come join a group of quarantined students and learn the theory and practice of safe food storage, starting an indoor herb garden, fermenting foods, pickling foods, and making cheese, yogurt, and tempeh. You'll get a list of ingredients and materials beforehand so you may follow along, or just tune in, ask questions, converse, and chill in this interactive class. There are a wide selection of projects, and while we don't expect you to follow every one, we do hope there are some that only need materials you already have in your everyday kitchen. Our planned course road: Jun 11: Intro & Herb Garden Jun 18: Kitchen Care & Pickling Jun 25: Fermentation Aug 01: Cheese & Yogurt Aug 08: Tempeh Aug 15: Grand Dinner & Closing With regular checkups of the state of previous projects!

X13489: Stationery/Card Workshop in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Send a tangible message in a medium that the recipient will know you've held and dedicated time towards. These ain't cookie-cutter cards sold by the dozens, but neat cards bearing your own signature style. This class provides the materials, ideas, and structure to craft your own personalized cards for thank-you's, birthdays, holidays, and more! Experiment with designs incorporating pressed flowers, gold leaf accents, and washi tape aesthetics, and with sealing involving wax or ancient letterlocking techniques. We will work on creating the cards themselves for students to take home and write messages on. Stamps for mailing will also be provided. Show 'em hand-made letters never go out of style.

X13617: Boba-ology with a side of boba in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Do you like the liquid deliciousness, the college student's dream fuel, and the only drink that will make you willingly chew on rubbery balls? Introducing Boba (or bubble tea, as some might call it), an Asian tea drink that is highly popular worldwide, but especially so on MIT campus thanks to addicts like me. In this class, we will learn about the history and the composition of different types of boba. And you (yes you!) will have the chance to make your own DIY boba. Not only will you get FREE BOBA, you can also learn how to make boba at home, which will save your wallet from the eventual boba addiction. Come to drink boba and hang out!
