Planning is now underway for classes to be offered at North Country Fiber Fair 2023. We hope you are interested in teaching a class or three this year! NCFF will be held the third weekend in September, September 15, 16, and 17, at the Codington County Extension Complex in Watertown, SD.
As in previous years, we are looking for new ideas for classes in addition to ones that have worked well in the past. We define fiber arts broadly at NCFF: for example, paper, pine needles, wire, basketry, needlework, and sprang all fit under our class umbrella. Class proposals may focus on beginning or unique skills in any of the traditional fiber arts, as well as on unusual methods in a wide variety of craft forms.
For ease of scheduling, we encourage you to make your class one or two sessions, two to four hours in length each. Students will pay $20 per class hour, of which the instructor will receive half. For example, each student will pay $60 for a 3-hour class, of which you would receive $30. Please be explicit in your proposal about all materials that students must have for your class. Note also that our students very much appreciate getting handouts.
We will let you know by May 1 if your class has been chosen for our 2023 fair. We will need one to three photos (.jpg or .png) of the finished class project showcasing the skills taught in the class. Note that we cannot use photos embedded in a pdf. Please ensure that the image is at least 300 ppi/dpi and will show clearly at a small size (no more than 1″—2″ on a side) in color. Maximum file size for each image is 256 MB.
Do let us know if you have any questions at email@example.com. We hope that we will see you in September 2023.
