New Hobbies in Westchester for 2017

Posted by editor on 01/24/17

We are almost one month down into the New Year.  If you didn’t start any new year resolutions but want to try something new in 2017, you are in luck! Having a dedicated hobby can help clear your mind and even reduce stress. Below are 5 new activities to try in Westchester that are close to your Castle apartment.

Home Brewing – If you love craft beer, you may want to experiment with home brewing.  Brewing starter kits are affordable and the Westchester Homebrewers Organization is there to answer any questions! You can join the organization for $25.00 and the meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month.

Wheel working Ceramics – Ceramics can be a relaxing and creative hobby to start in 2017.  You can also have something beautiful to take home and keep in your Castle apartment. Yonkers Peace Pottery Studio offers beginner classes, with 8-week sessions or private one-one-one classes.

Chocolate Making – Chocolate lovers, unite! Who doesn’t want to make their own delicious chocolate? Blue Tulip Chocolates hosts tastings and “how to become a chocolatier” workshops where you get to learn how to make and decorate chocolate (and enjoy samples too).

Rock Climbing – At The Cliffs in Valhalla, you can sign up for a “learn to climb” 1 month package for $99.00.  The package includes a 2-hour course on everything you need to get climbing and a free month of climbing with gear.
