The perfect way to close out the workday! Flex your creative muscles with local craft beer, appetizers, and friends, as you transform a slab of local, reclaimed wood into a customized cheese and charcuterie serving platter.
– Voucher for 1 Brothers Craft Brewing beverage (good for one beer, hard seltzer, canned cocktail, or non alcoholic drink)
– Supplies to create a wooden charcuterie board (including slab of locally-sourced, urban wood)
– Charcuterie spread
– Bottle of mineral oil to take home for board maintenance
After choosing a slab of Ash or Walnut wood, participants will have the option to either trace the shape of their board, using one of the 4 templates provided, or freehand their own shape. Staff from one of the many urban wood programs partnering with HDR on this workshop will cut out the boards, while workshop participants head into the Taproom to enjoy a beverage and a presentation on the City of Harrisonburg’s Urban Wood Program. Participants will learn the background of the locally sourced wood they’ll be giving a new life to and the purpose and importance of Virginia urban wood programs.
The workshop will continue outside where participants will sand their freshly cut boards. The boards can be further customized with handles, leather, and wood burning stamps and pens.
While treating their finished boards with mineral oil, participants will be invited to sample a spread of charcuterie meats, cheeses, and fruits provided by JMU Dining. A JMU Dining chef will close out the workshop with a brief presentation on how to build the ultimate charcuterie and cheese board at home.
