Submit Your Ideas for Mini-Workshops for Fall 2011
Sewing By The Sea Fall 2011
Call for Mini-Workshops
It is time to start planning for our free mini-workshops. Carrying on our tradition of sharing, we would like to offer several informal workshops during the retreat. Is there a technique or project you would like to share?
We need your input! What short classes would you like to offer?
As a workshop leader you choose the day, time and duration of your class. You can set a minimum and a maximum class size. Several people can lead a class together. You volunteer your time. You can offer a kit with a kit fee, and/or have a supply list for participants. The class can be hands-on or a demo.
In the past we have done things like learn doll-making techniques, make bubble bracelets, felt bars of soap, make altered board books, explore foiling on fabric, see demos of lace making, decorate glass Christmas balls, and try yoga. Anything goes!
Send your ideas to Sandy by September 20th. We will send out the offerings in early October so you can register for the classes you want.
For those of you who are attending for the first time, these are free workshops of 1/2 hour to 4 hours duration that are led by volunteer teachers. The only expense to participants is the supplies. The purpose of the workshops is to share our expertise and interests, and to explore new techniques and materials. And, of course, to have fun together.
Here is the basic information we need:
TITLE OF CLASS
CLASS SIZE: Minimum, Maximum
KIT: If any. What is included. Cost.
BRING: Supplies /equipment participants should bring.
WORKSHOP LEADER: Can be more than one person if you want to work with a friend. One or two sentences about yourself.
PROPOSED DAY & TIME: What works for you? How much time do you need? Remember, you can do a demo and get people started then they can work on their own to finish.
