Holland Cox and Julia's Rooted Kitchen are teaming up to bring home ec to you and your friends in your own home!

Mix-and-match your choice of one sewing lesson and one cooking lesson, outlined below. We'll supply materials, snacks, and hands-on instruction for you and up to 9 friends for a one-day (4 hour) class.

Looking for sewing or cooking lessons you don’t see below? Just ask! We can probably accommodate it.

Right now we're looking to host a few 'soft opening' Home Ec House Parties to help us flush out the new idea. For these first few events, we're charging ONLY the cost of materials. Want to be a trend-setter and help us kick these parties off? Get in touch with us below!

Sewing Lessons

Sewing Machines 101

Ever wondered what all those switches and levers on a sewing machine do? Here's your chance to learn! Participants can bring their own machines, or we can supply them for a small additional cost. Plus, everyone will use their new-found skills to sew a small bag to take home!

T-Shirt Up-Cycling

Whether your'e drowning in old T-shirts, or just have a special one with sentimental attachment, there's no need to toss it out. Learn to "up-cycle" your shirts into skirts, scarves, and more!

Hemming & Mending

It's painful throwing out shirts because of a small hole, or walking around with rolled-up jeans. Learn the basic hand-sewing skills necessary to hem and mend your own clothes.


Cooking Lessons

Start-to-Finish Pizza

Healthier and less expensive than your neighborhood pizzeria, homemade pizza is a ton of fun. Learn to make the yeast-based pizza dough, watch it rise, stretch it out, and make your own pie. Plus, learn the proper ways to slice and dice as we prep bountiful toppings for our pies.

Making the Most of the Season: Winter Squash

Looking to eat seasonally but not sure where to start? Learn to celebrate the winter with three different ways to prepare and enjoy winter squash. You’ll hone your knife skills, learn kitchen tips and tricks, and make a delicious meal to enjoy as a group. Plus, you'll take home the recipes, and the know-how to follow them in your own kitchen.

Homemade Pasta

Sure you can buy pasta at the store, but homemade pasta is way more delicious. Learn to make the pasta dough, roll it out, and cut it. Time-permitting, we can even pinch together some ravioli. Delizioso!

Sweet Treats: Bundt Cake

Does the science of baking make you nervous? No need to fear. Learn to make a delicious bundt cake, the perfect treat for yourself or a dinner party. Through making the cake you'll learn a variety of baking techniques. At the end of class we'll all dig into something delicious and take home the recipe to enjoy at home.
