IWC is seeking proposals for the 2025 Conference, 17-21 June 2025, at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, NM for the following workshops and seminars:
3-hour seminars – 3 hours for a half day. Participants should be required to bring minimal supplies.
1-day workshops – 6 hours total for one day. Small equipment such as inkle looms and marudai/kumihimo disks can be required, but no table, floor or rigid heddle looms.
3-day workshops – 6 hours total for each day, 18 hours total for 3 days
The 3-day workshops will be held Wednesday through Friday, 18-20 June 2025. The 3-hour seminars and 1-day workshops will be held on Saturday, 21 June 2025.
IWC is encouraging leaders that propose a 3-day workshop to also propose 1-day workshops or two 3-hour seminars. The subject matter for 3-day workshops and 1-day workshops or seminars should be different.
IWC has added virtual workshops between conferences to our offerings. IWC will provide the Zoom environment and a person to manage that environment during the class.
Workshops and seminars will be hosted on Zoom by the instructor in most cases (other arrangements and support can be discussed individually). IWC will provide the Zoom license (unless instructor wants to use their own)
IWC will timely promote the event to its members
IWC will facilitate registration and payment through its established software
A member of the IWC Board will attend the session to offer assistance as needed
Attendance minimum and class fees will be determined by IWC based on costs
Specific class parameters will be determined through collaboration with instructor
Topics include weaving, spinning, dyeing, and basket-making – so long as they can be presented virtually
