Come join the Creative District to kick off Arts and Culture month this Monday, October 7 at 5:30 p.m. at project Y cowork. This event will offer a sweet Halloween twist and will feature the owner and pastry chef of Barrow a Baker, Chantielle Hanson.
Borrow a Baker is the brainchild of Hanson, a self-proclaimed Harry Potter lover with a passion for baking and decorating cakes. “My first career was as a teacher, but once I discovered how hard it was to bake in Los Alamos I wanted to help with that” said Hanson.
This Art On Tap event will feature one of Hanson’s favorite fall treats, pumpkin muffins with maple buttercream frosting and a simple tutorial on how to decorate them for Halloween. Hanson will also discuss some of the challenges of baking at altitude, and tips for decorating your own pastries.
Art On Tap is sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District. The On Tap series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. All ages are welcome! On Tap is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. The “On Tap” series happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Los Alamos Arts Council/Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC at The Nature Center.
