A company in Cumru Twp., Berks Co., is offering summer classes with a twist.

Tom Sturgis Pretzels is inviting fans of all ages to learn about the history of pretzels and pretzel twisting.

Those who stop by can get some hands on experience twisting pretzels. They can also enjoy some samples.

"We're just doing things for our local public, teaching them how to twist pretzels the way we did it maybe 30, 40 years ago and going back maybe even 100 years before that," said Bruce Sturgis, president/treasurer, Sturgis Pretzels.

The twisting classes will take place every Wednesday in July from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
