Summer Workshop: Getting Started

Workshop Overview

Are you ready for a summer packed with the best outdoor cooking and entertaining ideas? Our online workshop will guide you week by week to make the most of the season.

  • Each week, you'll receive a shopping list of supplies for that week's projects, plus a checklist to help you get organized.

  • You'll begin with a preview of all the projects for that week.

  • Then, you'll move on to that week's technique. In Week 1, for example, you'll learn how to get your home ready for summer.

  • You can put your new skills to the test with two weekly projects, plus a work-ahead project for the Fourth of July.

  • Once you've completed the projects, you'll have a chance to share your work with other workshop participants via the user photo gallery. (You'll have to accept the terms and conditions first.)

  • Are you having people over this weekend? Each week, we'll present a new weekend party idea -- including a delicious summer menu and a craft idea to add a special touch to the festivities.

Before You Begin
