2019 February Mini-Workshops

We are pleased to present the mini-workshops for February 2019.  We will update this information with any changes or new workshops and you will be notified by email as well.

Registrations for the workshops will begin November 30th at 7pm.  You will be able to register online through Sign Up Genius (click on the “register here” link below). Instructions were sent by email Nov 28th. Please read that email, as it will tell you how to register online.


Reminder: You must be an active member of SPAC for 2019 to participate. Please ensure you have renewed your membership by Dec 31st.

We are requesting that you only sign up for a maximum of 4 workshops. This will allow more members to have a chance to take a mini-workshop. We will re-assess based on how full the classes are in mid-January and may let you know that you can then sign up for additional workshops.

There are a maximum number of students for each class (noted in the workshop descriptions). Those who sign up beyond the maximum number will be considered wait-listed and will not pay fees unless notified by one of the mini-workshop co-chairs that there is room in the workshop

Note that you are not confirmed in a workshop until payment of $10/workshop has been received and you have been sent a confirmation of payment by a SPAC Mini Workshop Co-Chair. We are looking at accepting e-transfer, debit, credit card, cheque, and cash payments for mini workshops. Details will be sent along with the instructions for registration before November 30th.

All workshops will take place at the McTavish Academy Of Art (1720 McTavish Rd, North Saanich, BC).

Also note there may be an additional fee of up to $15 for supplies, which will also be specified in the workshop description. All supply fees must be paid directly to the instructor at the workshop.
