Teaching and Learning Through Correspondence

TLC is a one-on-one study program with a mentor that is tailored to meet your needs.


TLC is an independent study program established by HGA in 1993.  After a HGA member submits an application to study a specific topic in weaving, spinning or dyeing, they will be matched with an experienced HGA member with expertise in that particular area of study. It may take a few weeks to locate the appropriate mentor.  After the two members agree to work together, the mentorship will continue for one year.  Since the length of the mentorship is one year, the topic of study should be specific enough to thoroughly explore in the course of that year.

The application fee is $150. 

Applications are accepted throughout the year.
