Workshop-Fundraisers

Together, we learn the joy of dotting in a workshop to support our cause.

A Travelling Kindness Rocks workshop is all about folks learning the enjoyable, creative pastime of dotting mandalas while supporting your cause and the global giving of Travelling Kindness Rocks.

Projects
During this format, workshop participants will have time to paint at least two pieces, the first an introductory-level Travelling Kindness Rocks pattern on card stock and the second their own, unique dot mandala on a rock.

Price & Registration
We will charge $35 per adult and $30 per youngster (plus tax) and split the profit evenly after deducting any necessary costs for the venue.

Know that you can draw a big crowd? We have the gear to take up to 100 participants in a workshop! If you are aiming for even more than 100 folks, that's possible too with enough time to increase our supplies.

Projects
With 40 or more folks, the dotting process takes a bit longer, so one pattern project will be completed in this format. The pattern will have a few more steps than those offered in the smaller scale workshops but still achievable by first-timers. We provide card stock as the work surface for the project, but welcome participants to bring their own rock or canvas if they wish to dot on that instead. For large organizations, its possible to have a pattern designed especially for your event(s).

Price
Pricing in this format is flexible and may depend on any cost for the venue, your community, etc. Travelling Kindness Rocks' take away from each registration will be $15 for an adult and $12 for a youth. We will chat about what the total will be for folks to register, which will determine how much your organization will raise. For example, if we decide on $25 + tax for an adult and $22 + tax for a youth, your organization will raise $10 from each registration. 

Additional Fundraising at the Event
With one project, there are a couple natural breaks in the flow of the workshop where dots need to dry. This is a great opportunity for additional fundraising through a 50/50 draw, canteen sales, and so on, should your organization choose to add these in.

Time Frame
Allow 2.5 hours for the dotting fun, whether you go with format 1 or 2. An hour is needed prior to the start of the event for set up and approximately 45 minutes is needed after the event for clean up.

Location
A venue that accommodates the number of participants, including tables and chairs, an appropriate space for projecting computer equipment (ie. a screen or pale-coloured wall), and ample space for drying works in progress is needed. Generally, booking the venue is taken care of by your organization and connects in some way to your cause, if applicable (ie. a school hosting the event for a school-based fundraiser).
