Guild meetings are held normally on the second Saturday of the month, September through June. The meeting is held at St. James Episcopal Church, 11815 Seven Locks Road, Potomac, Maryland (click here for directions and facility map), except for the December Pot-Luck Social which will be held at St. Mark Presbyterian Church. Each meeting includes a program that is conducted by a Guild member or visiting artist, or that is a special Guild event. All meetings are open to anyone.
Enter the front parking area and drive around the right side of the church building to the rear parking lot (follow signs for St. James’s Children’s School). Use the door at the rear of the church. The meeting room is on the ground floor and is handicapped accessible.

Workshops last from 1 to 3 days, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, unless otherwise noted. The locations are given with each workshop description.
Workshop attendance is limited based on space availability and instructor preference. The workshops are open to all Guild members, with registrations on a first come, first served basis. Registration opens to non-members at least 3 weeks prior to the workshop, if space is available. When the class-size limit is reached, a wait list is established.
For more information about the workshops, contact the Program Chair.
All workshops require advance registration with full tuition payment. There may also be an additional materials fee payable to the instructor at the time of the workshop. A supply list, if appropriate, is provided with each workshop listing.

Cancellation Policy: Participants who need to cancel prior to the start of the workshop must contact the Registrar first in order to receive the Wait-List (if there is one). Tuition reimbursement must be coordinated between Participant and their Replacement (not the Guild).

We recommend signing up for preferred classes ASAP – as many classes fill up FAST. Once a class is filled, a wait-list will be started.
If all the spaces in a workshop are not filled, we open up to other guilds/general public. However, first priority is given to Guild members.
No – although we hope you’ll join us!
