Just the way Grandma made it!

March 12, 2019 • By The Cummins & District Tourism Committee

This March 29th and 30th put your “granny skills” to the test with author and tradition preservation advocate, Rebecca Sullivan!

On Friday 29th, join Rebecca at the Cummins School Community Library from 2pm to 4pm, where she will be talking about her work as an author and the art of the natural home. A great opportunity to meet the person behind the Granny Skills movement. RSVP’s are essential via email: cummins.library@plain.sa.gov.au or via phone: 86762476.

On Saturday 30th, Rebecca will be part of Saucy Saturday by hosting a series of masterclasses at the Community Hall.

These workshops include a Passata Making Class, a group effort to make your own winter stash of pasta sauce. Ingredients are supplied, with participants only needing to bring their own jars – clean and sterile – a chopping board, and kitchen knife. This class will be available in two different time slots for your convenience, one at 10am and another one at 11:30am.

There’s also a Natural Home Workshop. Based on Rebecca’s books and knowledge, this workshop aims at teaching skills to embrace green living. Participants will be able to make something for each room in the house, from eco-cleaners to body scrubs. Ingredients are also supplied but bring your own jars. This class will be available in two different time slots as well, with one at 1:30pm and another one at 3pm.

Tickets to these workshops can be purchased at the door to Hall Supper Room, and they will only set you back $10. Classes are also limited to 25 people, so get in quick!

Other local businesses displays and information sessions will be held in the Main Hall, and remember, if you’d like to participate in Saucy Saturday, download the T&C’s here and the entry form here.
