PGU Love to Learn
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is proud to offer the following PGU continuing education workshops for the 2015 fall semester. Join one or more of these PG instructors as they teach about topics related to their fields of expertise.
Sharpen Your Look: Sara Bauknecht, Style editor
Monday, October 12 • 7 p.m. — 9 p.m.
Ever wonder how fashion trends trickle down from the runway to retail, and how to adapt these trends to your own sense of style? Sara will share insights from her coverage of New York Fashion Week and Pittsburgh's fashion scene. Personal style consultant Aire Plichta and beauty experts from Izzazu Salon, Spa and Serata will demonstrate simple ways to sharpen your look, and the evening will close with a fashion presentation featuring Pittsburgh-based brands and designers. $35.
Unique Pittsburgh: Brian O’Neill, Editorial columnist
Monday, November 9 • 7 p.m. — 9 p.m.
Brian’s book, “The Paris of Appalachia: Pittsburgh in the Twenty-First Century,” is the fastest selling title in the history of the Carnegie Mellon University Press. More a biography of a city than a history, Brian explains Pittsburgh’s unique personality through its quirky folkways.
$50, includes a copy of the book.
Fish On: John Hayes, Outdoors editor
Saturday, November 14 • 6 a.m. — 9 p.m.
The big bus heads north for another steelhead fishing trip, this time with more spin fishing tips, more fly fishing instruction and more time on the water. Includes hands-on help from fishing coaches, a bait and fly shop stop offering discounts to PGU participants and a buy-your-own dinner. $50.
Renovate with Style: Kevin Kirkland, Homes editor.
Monday, November 23 • 7 p.m. — 9 p.m.
Architect Carmine Carapella was born in Italy, but his love for Alpine and modern architecture is the reason Brigitte Savchik of Franklin Park chose him to give her boring 1970s Colonial a make-over. In a workshop based on a Post-Gazette story, Kevin, Carmine and Brigitte discuss ways to work with an architect to add style to your home renovation. $35.
