Woodworking: Salad Tongs Workshop and Harvest with Bien Hecho
Sep 7, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm| $60
Take a look around your kitchen… where did your salad tongs come from? We’re betting you didn’t make them….but you can!
Bien Hecho and Brooklyn Grange are teaming up to get you into the wood shop and up to the farm. Join us for a hands-on morning where you’ll learn how to make your very own salad tongs in true Brooklyn Navy Yard fashion.
We’ll start in Bien Hecho’s wood shop, learning the key elements of woodworking, examining different origins, grains, and hardness levels of wood. From there, you’ll draw and cut your blocks down to salad tong size. Last comes the shaping and sanding, transforming your raw wood into one of a kind utensils!
Then it’s up to the farm to tour Brooklyn Grange’s urban oasis, harvest a few veggies, and settle in to enjoy a farm fresh salad tossed by you and your freshly finished tongs.
At the end of the morning you’ll leave with a new set of tongs and a story that will spice up any salad you’re serving.
