- General Info on the Club
- Hands On Workshops
- 1. How do I join the club?
- 2. When and where does the club meet?
- 3. How large is the GCWA?
We have approximately 200 active members, and a number of future members who participate but have not yet officially joined.
- 1. How do I sign up for a hands-on workshop?
You can sign up for a hands on workshop by either hand delivering or mailing a check for the class registration fee to the HOW coordinator, currently George Kabacinsky. The registration fees will vary based on the club's cost for the instructor, and how many days the class lasts.
Most classes also have a small materials fee associated as well, but that is handled on the day of the class. Correct change in cash is appreciated.
- 2. How do I volunteer to teach a HOW class?
- 3. How are the topics for the Hands-On Workshop classes determined?
There are a variety of ways in which a class topic can be determined. A few of most common ones include:
- A club member brings a topic of interest to the HOW coordinator, who then works to find an instructor to teach it.
- A club member offers to teach a class on a topic they have found interesting, and believes there would be a demand for within the club.
- A past topic was popular and demand exceeded the class capacity, so the topic is repeated either later that year or in a subsequent year.
- A regional or national turner is invited to the club, and agrees to teach one or more classes of topics of their choosing or from a set list of options.
