FTWG compiled this list of presenters available for Guild Programs and Workshops.  Each instructor submitted their information for inclusion here and FTWG is merely providing a space for connecting the presenter with guilds.  All communication regarding specific dates and details should occur directly between the presenter and the guild.

FTWG first provided this information in the summer of 2018.  We would like to determine utilization of the list, as we may discontinue the service if the Guilds do not use it.  Therefore, we ask that if you do use the list, please send a brief summary of which program/workshop was offered, to which guild, number of participants, and dates. Also give a brief review of how the program/workshop was received.

Changes, deletions, or additions to the list can be emailed to margaretegriffiths@me.com before October 15. Updates will be made by October 31.

This list is organized by District, so Guilds can estimate how far an instructor may need to travel. You can scroll down the page or click on a District in the following list to be taken directly to the list of Instructors in that District.  The website only includes the name of the instructor, the program(s) they offer, and contact information.  Full details regarding the programs are available by downloading the PDF brochure.
