2021 Mini-Workshops

Please read the following as we are making some additional changes to the policies and processes this year to ensure safe participation.

SPAC’s Fabulous February Mini-Workshops will be happening once again during the month of February 2021. Our team is working to bring you a dynamic event that will allow us to safely gather: we are making changes to the policies and processes to address COVID-19 concerns and to respect B.C. Health Orders.

The team is working with the McTavish Academy Of Art (MAOA) to ensure the safety of all our members. This year, to allow for physical distancing, the size of our workshops will be limited to 8-10 members maximum, with each student having an individual table.

Call for Instructors & Volunteers

If you are interested in sharing your knowledge, skill and creativity for a half-day mini workshop, now is the time join us for this fun activity!

Same as last year, instructors can submit their ideas for their workshop(s) using our online registration form, and our members will register for classes using BookWhen. The deadline for submitting your workshop idea is November 15, 2020.

We are also looking for members to assist us with the day to day activities that will need to be in place to run this event. Together we are stronger! If you are interested in in finding out more, please contact us via email.

Questions? We can be reached at miniworkshops@spacsociety.com

We look forward to working with you!

Note About Materials & Fees

We will once again be asking for the list of materials that instructors will be providing, if any, as well as the list of materials that the students need to bring to the class themselves, if any. These lists will form part of the course description. Introduced last year, this feature of the class listings was greatly appreciated by both students and instructors.

We will also again be collecting the materials fee at the time of registration. This fee will be paid to instructors at the same time as the class registration fee in March.

For instructors who are charging a materials fee, it is expected that this fee will include all the items needed to have a positive experience in the workshop, and any additional items that the student need to provide will be minimal.

For those instructors not charging a materials fee, we would like to encourage you to keep the cost of additional material the students need to purchase to a reasonable amount to make these workshops accessible to more of our members. Where possible, students can be encouraged to purchase items as a group to keep costs down.
