Learning from Scratch

Debra Hodge
I love being able to teach someone a skill when they don’t think they can. I feel that everyone has creativity in them that can be brought out.”
Debra Hodge
Lifelong Learning Instructor, Cake Decorating
Lifelong Learning instructors are community members who have a skill they want to share. Debra Hodge’s passion for baking started when she was young and would bake with her mother. Now, she teaches classes on how to build beautiful, edible works of art. You don’t need any experience to register - she’ll teach you from scratch.
