If "learn something new" was on your list of New Year's resolutions but you're not sure how to start or are feeling discouraged with February on the horizon, here are a few ideas:

Bicycle maintenance ā€” Novice cyclists who want to learn more about bike upkeep can check out workshops at Northwest Arkansas Community College.

  • Two sets of classes are coming up: Feb. 7-March 9 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and March 27-April 19 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Class hours are 6-8pm; cost is $500 plus about $100 in supplies.

Honeycomb Kitchen Shop ā€” Aspiring cooks can take one-night courses and learn how to perfect a single dish from area chefs.

  • These are popular ā€” in the near term, only Soppin' Stews on Feb. 23 and Brunswick Stew on March 7 have openings. Classes cost $60-$100 and take place in Rogers.

Fermentation ā€” Learn how chemistry brings nutrition and flavor to food from James Beard Award-winning food writer Sandor Katz.

  • On Feb. 24, Katz will lecture ($45) from 6-8pm. If that's not enough, on Feb. 25 from 11am-1:30pm, join him in a workshop and learn how to make food like sauerkraut and kimchi ($60). Both events are at The Momentary in Bentonville.
