HUNTER COLLEGE
Shoemaking
It’s one thing to tinker with loafers and pumps at home, quite another to learn what you need to make the hottest footwear around, collect supplies and materials, then cobble the shit out of them! Thursdays, 6:30-8:30pm; Starts Oct. 11, $395

PARSONS
Woodcut, Etching and Collagraph

That’s right—collagraph. If you have to ask what it is, you might not be ready for it. Anyway, if you like playing with knives, you could start selling art you made out of wood you found in Prospect Park. Saturdays, 10am-12:30pm; Starts Sep. 15, $719.00

3RD WARD
Intro to Dyeing

Maybe you’re good at the age-old technique of tying cloth up in rubber bands and chucking them into garbage pails filled with dye. But this class will take you to a higher plane. Sundays, 5pm-8pm; Oct. 14 and 21, $155 (non-members)

Build Your Own Surfboard
Duuude! Carve your own surfboard? Hell yes! Sign us up! This course is taught by David Murphy, a real watersport designer pro. It’ll be worth your time. Tuesday, Sep. 4, 7-10pm; Thursday, Sep. 6, 10am-6pm; Friday, Sep. 7, 10am-6pm; Tuesday, Sep. 11, 7-9pm. $265 + $175 material fee (non-members)

KINGSBOROUGH
Urban Farming Training Program

Don’t those herbs on your windowsill fill you with pride as you add them to dishes made with farmer’s-market-procured ingredients? Well, it’s about time you stopped buying tomatoes and started growing them, too. The school even offers cooking demos for your urban harvest. Tuesdays, 4:30-7:30pm; Oct. 9-Nov. 2, $125
