To kickstart SFMade Week, Bluxome Street Winery is hosting a Masters and Makers event Tuesday evening. The winery will host a number of workshops, coming from the likes of Foggy Notion, Dandelion Chocolate, McVicker's Pickles, and more. The mini-workshops start at 5:20 p.m. with a DIY cheese-making class from SF Milkmaid and continue until 7:40 with Raff Distillerie. The winery itself will offer a barrel sampling workshop at 7 p.m.
Those who appreciate everything artisanal can learn how to cure their own meat with wild herbs from ForageSF and pair pickles with McVicker's. Foreignspell, from SF illustrator Niki Baker, is also offering a workshop called Palatable Printmaking, in which she teaches how to create stamping projects with items found in the kitchen.
Admission to the fest is free and brews from Magnolia Gastropub will benefit SFMade. Wes from WesBurger will be manning the grill, with options for vegetarians, and Bluxome will be pouring their California wines. A bevvy of food trucks will also be set up outside.
SFMade has hosted a week of connecting San Francisco's community with local manufacturers for the past four years. A number of other events, like kimchi-making classes from Sinto Gourmet and factory tours from Speakeasy, are going on throughout this city from May 5 through 11.
