i’m pleased to introduce you to tentiko, a new small business in denver and this month’s featured sponsor on A Denver Home Companion. tentiko strives to offers local and authentic experiences to those looking for real world interaction. they seek out and curate many unique things to do in denver, and then offer you the opportunity to participate! it’s a local catalogue for fun things to do that help you get to know better the wonderful things about denver and the people in it.
from coffee cupping to longs peak summit attempt. from mushroom foraging to farm and creamery tour w one of denver’s best chefs. there’s also neighborhood walking tours, glassblowing workshops, and watercolor monotyping (i had to look that one up and it looks awesome!). there’s cupcake decorating at a local bakery. and journal making. i love that what tentiko does is put so many varied activities, focused on local craftsman/historians/personalities, in one place for the people of denver to access.
the reason i’m so stoked on them? they created this company out of a love of community, a love of craft, and a love of the denver area. which is pretty much what i’m all about. here’s what they say about themselves:
Our goal is that our guests will fall in love with Denver by exploring it in new ways. They will learn more about something they care about or explore a new passion. They will meet amazing, passionate hosts and share the experience with old friends and meet new ones.
tentiko is generously giving $50 toward one experience to a reader of A Denver Home Companion! make sure to pop on over to their website and leave a comment back here saying which class you’re interested in. you can get extra entries by liking them on facebook, following them on twitter or pinterest, signing up to hear about upcoming events, and sharing this giveaway on any of those previous platforms. phew! this winner to this giveaway will be announced on next thursday’s post. good luck!
The sheep’s milk cheese making experience would be great! What a good idea!
Sculpt a Glassblown Terrarium!?! Holy cow! My two favorite things,art + plants!
Can I please have one of each!? Can’t wait to enjoy some of these great experiences. Seems they keep adding more and more all of the time!
PS. Love A Denver Home Companion!! Favorite discovery of today 🙂
Oh wow, what a cool company! I want to do all of it, but my sister has always wanted to take a glassblowing class…maybe this is her chance!
It is REALLY hard to pick one! I’d have to go with either the Longs Peak trip (My first 14’er!) or the Glassblowing Terranium. Such a fan of Tentiko and Walk2Connect- I need to keep my eye open for other adventures!
Sounds amazing! I’d do watercolor monotyping or send my sweet husband to do something food related.
Farm and Creamery Tour! How cool.
I’m stoked about going on one of their mushroom hunts. I’ve always been a fan of fungi. 🙂
