Roller skating has spanned generations, and on July 13, the community will celebrate 40 years of this wheeled pastime. Church of 8 Wheels is hosting a full day of roller skating, music, food, and fun in Bayview as part of a weekend celebration honoring the original members of the Golden Gate Park Skate Patrol, a group that spearheaded a successful effort in 1979 to stop a ban on roller skating in the park. The community is invited to bring their skates or borrow a pair onsite to celebrate 40 years of dedicated skaters who have kept skating alive in San Francisco.

Register online; $85 fee

 

At this fun workshop, you’ll spend a few hours making a ceramic vessel to fit a seasonal drink, which may mean a mug for locally roasted coffee or a pint for locally brewed beer. Join longtime San Francisco artist Deborah Gutof for this unique, hands-on workshop where you can sip and snack at a community table while making a clay drinking vessel. You’ll get step-by-step instructions and time to treat the surface of your vessel. Along with a fun time, you’ll get a vessel to take home. And, if you become attached to your work, the studio will fire, glaze and ship it to you for an extra fee.
