Mini Workshops

SAWG now offers small or “mini” workshops – all are in the workshop room at the Gallery. They are taught by members of SAWG who have expertise in various areas of artistic expression. These mini-workshops give our members an opportunity to learn new skills, or fine tune previously learned techniques. 

If you are interested in presenting a Mini-workshop, please fill out the Mini Workshop Proposal Form, and click on Submit.  For more information, contact Loisanne Keller,

Check below for current offerings.  If you see a listing you are interested in, please contact the instructor directly as SAWG is not involved in the registration process for these classes.
