    My best friend and I try to do something new every few months. This was another great Dabble class. The instructor was a little late but we were able to drink wine beforehand and he more than made up for it with his enthusiasm and desire to teach. He explained some of the differences between jam, jelly, marmalade, etc and showed us the basics of canning. Throughout the whole time we had fun talking, drinking, and learning something new. I'm excited to try another class at Paired Wine.

    This is my second class at Paired Wines. The instructor is fun to chat with, he has a ton of interesting stories to share during class. I think I would enjoy just about any class taught at this location for that reason alone! The jams we made were delicious and I feel confident about making them again at home now. Since it takes place in a wine shop, you can purchase wine by the bottle or the glass to enjoy. The wine 'vending' machine that serves by the glass is great.

    Loved this class! The location was super cool and Joe and Tommy were great hosts / teachers. The class was intimate and I felt right at home with everyone. In terms of the actual jam making process, Joe provided a demonstration to which we mostly watched and listened . The class was casual and we were able to ask questions throughout, chat with our neighbors, and even share stories. Class participation was limited, but we did help with some of the prep work and we took turns stirring the jams. The jams we made were absolutely delicious and Tommy's chocolate chip cookies complemented them nicely!

    This class was entertaining and interesting. The space is really small and very sweet. Given the limited space, your actual involvement in making the jam is limited. However, the jam we made was delicious. This is more of an educational class and not so much an interactive (either with other participants or the process itself). The instructor does lots of talking, so if you like to sit and listen and learn, this would be a great class for you. If you like to learn by doing or if you want a class where social action is encouraged, this is not the likely the class for you.

    If there was a hashtag, #thisiswhyidabble, this would be the class where I would use it. I learned so much and got to meet new people and had so much fun! I haven't dabbled in a little while, and now I am reminded why I need to do it regularly. I learn new skills and try things I never otherwise would have. The instructor for this session was SO welcoming! He was also super funny and really knowledgeable about the entire jam making process. We asked about one million questions and he was able to answer them all in a really accessible way that made sense to the uninitiated. I will DEFINITELY be taking more classes by this instructor. So much fun!!!

    This was our first dabble class and I am really glad we decided to choose this as our first class. We made blackberry with Jim Bean and raspberry with port jams that the instructors packaged up for us to bring home. We learned a lot about making jam and picking fruit and I look forward to trying it out on my own.
