Call for Workshop Proposals - Fall 2014
Sewing By The Sea Fall 2014
It is time to start planning
for our 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 beaded 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
10th.We will send out information
about the offerings in early
October so you can register for the classes you want. If possible, send a photo
of your project. Send it as a .jpg;72 dpi is fine. Do not imbed it in a Word document or other text.
For those of you who are attending for the first time, these
are free workshops of 1/2 hour to 2 hours duration that are taught 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:
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 if you wish.
DAY & TIME: What works for you? How much time do you need? (Sandy will confirm the date &
time.) Remember, you can do a demo and get people started then they can work on
their own to finish.
We already have scheduled two workshops: PUMPKINS! PUMPKINS! PUMPKINS and Introduction to Gelli Printing in Fabric. To whet your appetite two photos are below. We can't wait to see your ideas.
