MARSHFIELD — The University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County office of Continuing Education has released its Spring 2017 Course Guide, which includes offerings in the following categories: personal enrichment, the arts, theater, gymnastics, travel, youth, and sports and exercise. Since many classes fill up quickly, early online registration is encouraged to ensure adequate supplies.
The popular “Canvas & Corks” session will be held Jan. 26 from 6-8:30 p.m. With no experience necessary, participants may create their own masterpiece of “Catching Snowflakes” with step-by-step instruction. An instructor and a glass of wine are all the inspiration needed to create a work of art.
The International Dinner Lecture of “A Robert Burns Supper: Scotland’s Greatest Celebration” is scheduled for Jan. 27 from 6-9 p.m. and will be hosted by Keith Montgomery, dean of the UW Colleges North Region. Montgomery grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, and has hosted Burns Suppers in Wausau for several years.
Burns Suppers celebrate the life of Scotland’s most beloved bard, Robert Burns, who died in 1796. The evening includes a traditional Scottish meal, Scotch whiskey, a speech, and a toast to the memory of Burns.
Continuing Education offers people of all ages the opportunity to learn a new skill, explore a new hobby, enrich their lives with a one- or two-night course, or take a convenient and affordable trip.
Course guides are available at the Office of Continuing Education and community locations, including the Marshfield Public Library and the Senior Citizen’s Community Center located in Marshfield Mall. The Spring Course Guide is also available online at marsfield.uwc.edu/continuing-ed.
