There was a time when the items in your house weren't assembled by the tiny hands of children in other countries and shipped to a fluorescent-lit, big-box store near you. The Old School rooted itself in Albuquerque a couple of years ago with a mission: To pass on the skills of yore that helped people live inexpensively and sustainably. Experts teach classes in the home arts, and cheap and safe child care is available. This weekend's sessions may yield items that can easily be turned into gifts. In the Kitchen Cosmetics class this afternoon, you can learn to make fizzy bath bombs, and salt and sugar scrubs. In the Culturing Milk course, you can make your own yogurt, kefir and cheese. Tomorrow offers Embroidery for Beginners, as well as Soap-Making. Prices and times vary, and space is limited. Go to abqoldschool.com for more.
