A Curious Summer: Curious Cafe
June 28-July 2
ages 4 and up
Explore the hidden gardens, farms and wild foraging spots of San Francisco. Turning the storefront into a restaurant, we’ll create inventive meals and desserts inspired by the ingredients we find and serve them to family and friends. In daily excursions we’ll learn about where our food comes from, how it is grown and explore the culinary traditions of local and diverse communities. We’ll also explore our sense of taste and play tricks on our tongue by sampling miracle fruit. Special guests: Chefs Nicole LoBue and Leif Hedendal . Drop off/pick up at the Studio for Urban Projects.
A Curious Summer is a series of one-of-a-kind workshops driven by the curiosity of your child. We aim to induce wonder and spark enthusiasm for the everyday world around us. We consider play, the mysterious work of the child, to be an advanced and sophisticated endeavor, profoundly central to a child’s individual development and theories about the world. A Curious Summer workshops encourage discovery through free play, tinkering, and imagination.
Each week we will undertake a unique project. At the end of the week kids will share their experience with family and friends in a reception that showcases their discoveries. On some weeks we will use the Studio for Urban Projects storefront as our home base, turning it into a laboratory and point of departure for urban excursions. Other weeks we will meet at locations around the city.
A Curious Summer is conceived by Bryan Welch and Marina McDougall. Each week will be led by Bryan Welch along with special guests.
