As far as I know, there are no advanced tutorials.

Fortunately, Gtk# is "just" a thin layer on top of GTK, so most of the
tutorials for C-style GTK should help.

Of course you'll have to change the syntax, and I agree that is not
easy, and usually not straight foreward.
But this is the only way I found to continue...

Some time ago I sent an email to this list with the places where I found
 more info, if you search the archive I'm sure you can dig it up.
