Create Your Own Christmas Candy Gift Basket At Owens' Workforce and Community Services, Dec. 6 and 10

Area residents will have the opportunity to get into the holiday spirit, while indulging your sweet tooth at the same time, as Owens Community College offers a new Christmas candy class on December 6 and 10.

The first class will occur on Tuesday, December 6, from 6-8 p.m., while a second course will be held on Saturday, December 10, from 9-11 a.m. Both Christmas candy classes will occur at the College's Workforce and Community Services building, which is located on Tracy Road in Northwood.

"While recently teaching a basic candy-making course, I noticed that students often sought tips on making hard and other assorted candies for gifts as it got closer to the holidays," said Linda Hendricks, Owens instructor for the Christmas Candy Class and owner of the business, Creations by Linda. "So we decided to create a new class at Owens Community College designed specifically on helping people make their very own Christmas-themed treats."

Hendricks added, "Individuals of all skill and experience levels are welcome to take part in the course. The only prior skill you will need is to be able to read a recipe."

Those attending the course will learn how to create various sweet tooth favorites, including hard candy, nut patties, buckeyes and mints. In addition to these take-home creations, participants will have the opportunity to master the art of making extravagant baskets that could be used to give as gifts, along with the Christmas candy, to family and friends during the holiday season.

Owens' Workforce and Community Services is dedicated to providing customer-driven workforce development and job training. The learning-centered approach focuses on developing and enhancing professional skills to meet the needs of the community, customizing training in the areas of computer applications, allied health education, apprenticeship-related training and skilled trades.

The registration fee for the workshop is only $15. Participants will also need to provide their own basket to carry the edible delights home. For more information, or to register for the classes, call (567) 661-7357 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7357.
