I think that maybe instead of having workshops on IRC it's best to have 
some screencasted videos on how to do things.
I personally find  videos better than IRC sessions for me videos make 
things easier to understand as you actually see whats been done.
More or less something like this was very helpful to me:
maybe put this link in a walkthroug wiki page like this:
So you can go a whatch the video and read the wiki whenever you want.
Maybe IRC sessions can be held for new comers  to ask questions about 
doubts they have after watching the video, but not sure how this can be
