Workshops 2018

Beginning on February 27, and every other LAST Tuesday of the month -- April, June, August, and October, there will be a one-day mini-workshop/tutorial led by a member of  TRAG.  The cost for each of these will be $20 (or $25 if lunch is included).  The cost will cover all supplies needed for the mini-workshop/tutorial plus the convener's time and talent. 


At the February 27 event led by Pat Hovis-French, participants created a hand-made art journal based on the instructions in Pam Carriker's book, "Creating Art at the Speed of Life."  Hopefully they will gather after completing their 30 exercises and share the results!


Helen Long led the second tutorial on April 24 and shared two weaving projects with the group. 


The third Mini-Workshop/ tutorial led by Jan Rosenburg on June 26  introduced us to fun ways to use alcohol inks!

  • August 28 – Jan Rosenburg / Silk Dye Hoops (Sign up to participate at the TRAG meeting or send an email to

  • October 30 – Sandy Fearn / Origami Fun
