Invitation to Submit Teaching Proposals
The application deadline for Convergence® is closed. The submission process for the 2018 Convergence® will be online in Spring 2016.
HGA’s Convergence® conference is a many-faceted experience, including exhibitions, shopping, fashion, and meeting with new and old friends. However, surveys show that the educational experience, class selection, and inspiring instruction are the most important reasons for attending the Convergence® conference.
HGA invites instructors to submit résumés and course descriptions for workshops, studio classes, and both hands-on and lecture seminars in all fiber-related areas—weaving, spinning, dyeing, basketry, beading, braiding, business of art and craft, clothing construction, color theory, computer applications, design, embellishment, creative process, ethnic investigation, felting, fiber education, fiber history, knitting, knotting, metal interlacements, paper, rug-making, tablet weaving, tapestry weaving, and other fiber techniques.
