Member-led Workshops

Workshops are learning opportunities led by Guild members who wish to share their skills and ideas.

Currently workshops are being held over Zoom while we wait for a safe time to return to the classroom in person. The schedule for 2021 is the third Saturday of the month. Zoom sessions open at 9 am, and generally go from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.

The fee for each workshop is $15 per person for GQCCC members, $20 for sister guild members, and $25 for non-members. There may be an extra materials cost if you do not already have what is required in your stash.

Click on the workshop name in the list on the right to learn more about each workshop. Register using the link on the workshop page, or by the online registration form. You will receive an automated email message acknowledging that your registration has been received, followed by an email or phone call within a few days to arrange for payment. If you do not receive a registration confirmation, please reach out using the contact form and direct your message to Workshop Chair.

Payment reserves your spot in the class, and you will then receive the workshop supply list and connection information for Zoom.

Workshops held on Zoom are limited to 16 people with a waiting list. Register early!
