The latest buzz in Calgary? We'll give you a hint: you'll need a veil.
Founded in 1960, The Calgary Beekeepers Association holds events and workshops (like the upcoming Bee-ginners Bee Keeping course) to teach amateur enthusiasts how to create a happy and healthy colony and even how to harvest honey.
Sounds bee-licious. —Kait Kucy

A handmade chunky scarf has always been at the top of our DIY list. We just have to learn to knit first.
With that in mind, we signed up for classes at the cozy new STASH Needle Art Lounge. They'll teach you everything you need to know to get knitting and provide all of the supplies (saving you time stressing out at the craft store). Located in the historic 1912 Hudson’s Bay warehouse in Inglewood, we picture ourselves hibernating here come winter.
Next up on the to-do list: build a tiny world of greenery at their terrarium class. —Kait Kucy
