Workshops

Mini workshops are taught by our members and held in our members' homes. All workshops are $15.00 unless otherwise noted. If you hostess a workshop, you get to take it for free!

Our workshops are only open to NGKG members until two weeks before the workshop date. At that time, they are open to non-members for $20. Our workshops tend to fill up, so there are benefits to being a member.

You can receive a refund up to two weeks before the workshop. After that time, you can receive a refund if a substitute can be found.

If the guild needs to cancel a workshop, you will receive a refund.

If the guild needs to change a workshop, date, time, location or description, you may get a refund if you choose.

All checks are held until after the workshop.

If you are interested in attending a workshop or have any questions, please email the VP of Workshops.
