UPCOMING EVENTS AND CLASSES
At Cosmic Beet we love sharing some of our DIY tricks and showing you new ways of preparing food. Our classes are as much about education, learning the techniques and recipes as they are about creating a great opportunity for gathering, meeting new friends and most of all having fun. For the majority of the classes we handle all of the grocery and supply shopping so you can focus on enjoying the class, however there might some occasional classes where you can bring items from home for the project. Each participant in our classes gets hands-on attention and all the recipes and directions for projects will be given to you the day of class for future reference. We enjoy seeing you practicing some of your recipes and doing DIY so send us your photos!
Currently we are fundraising for our Cosmic Beet Studio flagship location in the Austin area. So, for now, we are offering our classes at your home and at locations which we are announcing prior to booking the classes. To make our classes affordable we just ask that you have at least 5 participants present for us to conduct the class or workshop. Occasionally we will be offering discounts so please contact us for further information.
Below you will find a sampling of some of our upcoming classes and workshops. Have a look and we will be updating and adding to this list soon. At Cosmic Beet we love to give you the opportunity to use your imagination and exercise your creative muscles so grab your friends and join us for our next adventure!
