salons_webFrom the BAG Bylaws:

“Salons…are short (one day or less) opportunities for instruction for BAG members to be taught by other members, either in their home or at a place the instructor arranges. The intent of salons is to offer beginner to intermediate skills for members on one topic or one technique. Salons are usually limited to 6-10 persons and take about 4 hours, more or less.”
