Fiber art teaching opportunity in Newfoundland

The council is currently looking for proposals from fiber artists who would like to teach at the conference. It also looks like there will be opportunities for artists to participate in panel discussions and other events.

Fiber Arts 2015
Celebrating Craft in Newfoundland and Labrador and Craft Year 2015, Fibre Arts Newfoundland and Labrador will take place from October 15 - 18, 2015 in beautiful Gros Morne National Park.
This four day conference will consist of workshops, lectures, exhibitions, seminars, panel discussions and tours and is bound to satisfy your fibre yearnings.
The Instructor Committee is now calling for proposals from interested designers, makers, and teachers. We invite you to be creative, and develop sessions that will inspire our Conference participants to reach beyond the boundaries of their current studio practices, and think in new ways, explore new ideas and develop new products. The Committee welcomes innovation in techniques and materials.
We look forward to submissions directed at both entry level and established professional fibre artists. Workshops in the areas of dye, felt, knit, spin, weave,crochet, surface design and rug hooking will be accepted and considered, as well as fibre techniques used in other media.
