Joining ARWA

All sessions are for members and registered guests. (Please e-mail us to register). Workshops are held on the third Saturday of every month – except December – and the library location will be advised via email and on the website calendar the month before the workshop.  All workshops are Hybrid – in person for local members, and Zoom for those who live out of town.
Past members may attend one workshop/meeting for free, and registered guests may attend once for a $15 fee (if you join, that $15 will go toward your membership fee).

Saturday workshops start at 10:30 am and typically run to 12:00-1:00 pm.

In addition, we offer weekly Monday evening online ‘write-in’s’ and occasional Tuesday ‘pop-ups’ where members get together to discuss topics online in an informal setting
