Shop Class is a five-session mashup of innovative thinkers, doers and curious bystanders. It’s designed to showcase Richmond’s creative best and push new thinking by blurring the lines between creator and creative minded. Shop Class is organized and hosted by Peter Fraser, Ansel Olson, John Sarvay, Lauren Boynton and Lauren Stewart in the historic Marvin Lang building on West Broad Street.
Chef Ellie Basch, formerly of Savor and The Lunch Porter, takes attendees on a journey through the intersection of local food and creative cooking, improvising dishes from local ingredients that the attendees contributed.
Ansel, John and Peter put the crew through their paces as informally organized teams are give a handful of cash, a shopping assignment and a goal of building a physical homage to #RVA creativity.
Kelly Trask leads students through a yoga practice during Breathe Design, an exploration of yoga as a metaphor for design and creativity.
All classes are free to attend, but space is limited and advance registration is required. Classes begin promptly at 6 pm.
