First Fridays for Foodies: Watta Cookie @ Kitchen, CTAC-Petoskey
Jan 5 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

terrimorgan-wattacookieHave you ever wanted to learn the secrets of bagel making? In this hands on class Watta Cookie owner Terri Morgan will be showing you how you can enjoy the authentic flavor of New York Style bagels without leaving your own kitchen. She’ll go over all the steps, from making the perfect yeasted dough, to hand rolling, and then boiling in barley malt for the chewy exterior, brown crust, and distinctive flavor of a New York classic!

Terri Morgan found her passion for baking when, as a child, she joined her grandmother in the kitchen, baking pies for local restaurants. She rekindled this passion when she returned to Northern Michigan in 2008, and started “Marie’s Old Fashioned Cookies” with her mother, bringing their baked creations to local farmer’s markets in Marie’s final years. Keeping the memory of both women alive, she founded “Watta Cookie!” in 2016, focusing on using fresh, pure, and organic ingredients to make treats that are as yummy as they are wholesome.

Crooked Tree Arts Center and the Petoskey District Library will present “First Friday for Foodies” culinary series in CTAC’s newly renovated commercial kitchen between 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  This event is free and open to the public.

  • a brief introduction to the goals of the program

You will have the opportunity to sign up for specific dates for student or adult tours.  You are also invited to attend if you aren’t sure or ready to volunteer for tours.

Coffee @ Ten: Digital Culture & Technologies with Taekyeom Lee @ Gilbert Gallery, CTAC-Petoskey
Jan 30 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are excited to welcome Hand In Hand artist,  Taekyeom Lee, for our January edition of Coffee @ Ten.  
 
About Taekyeom Lee
Taekyeom is an interdisciplinary artist although he prefers to introduce himself a designer using artist’s material and artistic sensibility. He is currently an Assistant professor of Graphic Design at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. He received an MFA degree in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has made three-dimensional type as a series of typographic explorations to strive challenge and seek a new way to create tangible type in three-dimensional space. As a part of research, he built a self-build 3D printer and designed his own paste extruders to produce intricate 3D ceramic type and objects. His research has drawn interest nationally and internationally. His interests in graphic design are not solely focused on unconventional typography but also explore a diverse aea of interests and experience like: artist book, ceramics, web design, lettering, digital fabrication, and art/design pedagogy.

 

His research explores unconventional methods of creating three-dimensional type with materials and techniques unique to type design — such as ceramics and desktop 3D printing. This research reflects on the process-uality of the digital fabrication and the unconventional typographic practices in the post-digital age. He has made three-dimensional ceramic type as a series of typographic explorations to strive challenge and seek a new way to create tangible type in three-dimensional space. 

Digital culture and technologies currently yield a strong influence over many areas of artistic practices, typography included. Through technological convergence, new manufacturing processes using computer numerical control such as 3D printing, CNC milling, and laser cutting have broadened creative possibilities for artists and designers and perception of three-dimensional experience. Especially, 3D printing has become more refined, common, and accessible, as well as cheaper – finally, it came to our desktop space. These new technologies have provided new tools for pushing boundaries of the medium both in terms of concept and materiality. In the response to the movement, he built his own tools, a self-built desktop 3D printer and paste extruders, to produce 3D ceramic type made out of 3D Bézier curves drawn in CAD software. He has created 3D type with various materials from plastic to clay, precious metal clay and new techniques, specifically 3D printing to inspire and creatively empower art and design professionals.
