Fiber College Call for Class Proposals
Ten years of learning, laughing and creating fiber arts on the beach and amongst the organic gardens! Our mission has always been educating creative expression.
Should you or someone you know be teaching at Fiber College, September 7-11 in Searsport Maine too? We’re asking for class proposals on anything fiber related…something fun, fresh, very easy or extremely technical…the committee is looking for quality projects and techniques that offer new ways to give form to our creative ideas. When you consider proposals, remember that fiber artists are business people too and we welcome a continuation of classes on getting the message out and finding new markets…can you offer something to this conversation?
As always, we’re searching for project classes on garments & accessories, baskets, quilts, yarn making, surface design, needle arts, wood working, weaving and interesting knots & paper. Technique classes always fill well so we’re looking to keep these in the mix…especially if they “cross-pollinate” with different interests students are likely to have. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’ll continue to search for classes that are unique to Fiber College.
The jury will be looking for the majority of class proposals to be 2, 4 or 6 hour classes. Like last year, we’ll also be looking for five, 12 hour intensive classes for Wednesday/Thursday. If this option is particularly interesting to you, please talk with Astrig directly before submitting a proposal, either call (207)548-6059 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fiber College of Maine is devoted to educating creative expression in all forms. By integrating classes, shopping, demonstrations, evening events and gathering places, we facilitate a community that supports light-hearted and authentic artistic discovery. All of the classes are taught in tents and casual buildings on Mid-Coast Maine’s picturesque Penobscot Bay. If you are in the position, consider combining your teaching schedule with a vendor booth to maximize your exposure and sales.
The easiest way to track the FC planning process is to read the Fiber College blog, Facebook or e-mail us with your questions. You can find Kathe on our Ravelry group too. The last day for submission will be March 1st. You will be notified of the jurying committee’s decision by March 20th.
We’re hosted by Searsport Shores Ocean Campground…making the College feel like a summer art camp for devotees of all ages. When you’re not teaching or participating in the events spread over the 40 oceanfront acres, we hope that you’ll find a spot at the beach or nestle into the organic gardens for some quality time of your own. This is the perfect “working vacation!”
Weaving a better world, one colorful thread at a time,
Astrig and the Fiber College Planning Committee
