Call for Instructors

The inimitable Jackie!

The inimitable Jackie!

The application is on the website and the hunt begins for the best classes we can offer at Fiber College 2009.

  • Have you spent years developing a special technique?
  • Are you more agile with a needle than others you know?
  • Do you have the talent to teach?
  • Have you learned a traditional or forgotten fiber art that you’d like to pass on?  Maybe you cane chairs or tat collars or…
  • Jeannette taught advanced bead work

  • Can you carve a spindle or handcraft knitting needles?
  • Are you a cutting edge fiber artist, frustrated that there isn’t more innovation in the fiber world?

Then we’d love to have you apply to teach a class (or up to 3 classes).  The application can be found on the Fiber College website.

The blind jury (members of the jury do not have an artist’s name to associate with the class proposal) will consider all class proposals and the final decision is based on a number of factors including:

  • unique appeal of project,
  • distribution of different fiber art interests, instructor’s ability to communicate the class effectively,
  • clarity and connection of photo to class description
  • and sometimes the availability/cost of materials needed to complete a project.

Instructors are paid  75% of all class fees and 100% of all material fees…and have plenty of opportunity to showcase their own work before and during the College.

If you don’t want to teach, do you know someone else who might?  Please send them to the website!  The last day we will be accepting instructor applications is March 9th, 2009.
