40th Anniversary Celebration
Join us on Friday afternoon, immediately after the last seminar, to celebrate our 40th anniversary!
Our kooky, informal fashion show is your opportunity to show your handwoven garments. There will not be an Off The Runway show this time, but you are welcome to carry non-garment pieces in the Fashion Show if you wish. For more information please contact CW Seminars
Poster Sessions were an exciting new feature at Complex Weavers Seminars 2016. They provide a way for members to share and discuss their current research. A member presenter prepares a poster containing the information to be shared, and the poster is on display at CW Seminars 2018. Poster sessions provide an agreeable ‘mini-seminar’ format for a meeting of minds. They are not remunerated.
The ‘What’ and ‘How’ of Poster Sessions
A poster session is a poster display on your current weaving passion. It can be a new weaving idea, a technique you’d like to share, or simply something on which you’d like feedback. Do you have a book in progress? Or new research you’d like to unveil? Tell us about it. Complex Weavers are a generous, creative bunch, and there are marvelously talented persons who attend Seminars. This is an excellent chance to build momentum on your project. Posters can be hung exhibiting your ideas. We will have note paper available for comments and questions that CW 2018 participants may ask or suggest. You want to leave your name or be available to discuss at meals or on your private time. Posters are expected to be picked up by the author at the end of the event. We will not be able to return these items by mail.
How to Submit a Poster Session
This opportunity is open to all CW Seminar 2018 registrants. There is no screening or jurying for this part of CW 2018 Seminars, and no reimbursement. Criteria are that the topic is weaving-related and that it is your own work. Just keep in mind that poster sizes are limited to 22″X 28″. Attending CW members are asked to send a note to Carla Gladstone (firstname.lastname@example.org) saying they would like to present a Poster Session. Once you are registered, you are in!
