Ready-to-Bake Pie Class with founder of Pietisserie at Homespun!

From EBBC:

Prepare a homemade pie, from start to finish, with your neighbor Jaynelle St. Jean of PieTisserie. The class will focus on creating a fruit-forward apple or pear-berry pie with a flaky double crust and beautiful lattice top. 
PieTisserie offers unique takes on classic dessert pies, made with whole, fresh and frequently local, organic ingredients. PieTisserie began when Oaklander Jaynelle staged a window of her mother’s home as a country window with pies set out to cool. Compelled to create her own small town in the city, she gave away slices of pie to passersby willing to eat with neighbors. Jaynelle created PieTisserie, making it her mission to fill the need for unique and delectable pies, and to remind people of the importance of pleasant surprises close to home via her Random Acts of Sweetness. Participants go home with an oven-ready pie!
