Teaching And Learning Through Correspondence

TLC Designed Especially by You - for You!


HGA's Teaching And Learning Through Correspondence (TLC),is an opportunity for you, as an HGA  Member, to write your own ticket for in-depth learning in a specific area of weaving, spinning, dyeing, or basketry. 

Created in response to members' requests, HGA's Teaching And Learning Through Correspondence (TLC) is a yearlong program of guided independent study designed for intermediate skill level HGA members.

  • Determine your starting date
  • Select your topic
  • Pursue your own goals

All with guidance and feedback from a knowledgeable advisor.


To participate, complete the TLC application form and send $150 (USA residents; $160 outside the USA) to the HGA office.

The program begins after you are matched with your mentor, selected for their knowledge in your chosen area of study, and continues for one year.

Members will be assigned a volunteer advisor who will…

  • assist in defining the year-long study goals
  • evaluate progress
  • provide direction and support

Participants will also be responsible for the cost of their supplies, mailing to their advisor, and duplicates of samples to share with their advisor.


Applications are accepted throughout the year. Please allow several weeks for assignment of a mentor.
