Fiber Arts Seminars at the 2023 Festival

The class list will be posted near the beginning of February. Registration will open on February 12.


Registration Information
 

  • We are accepting online registrations ONLY.
  • We are once again using Lessonface platform for registration for the in-person classes.
  • The registration link will be posted here once it is available.
  • Registration for all classes will close at noon on Sunday, April 30.
  • In the interest of allowing as many people as possible access to classes, you may purchase only one seat per class.
  • You may NOT resell the class to someone else. To gift a class, register for the class using the recipients’ email.

Avoid Double Booking
Lessonface allows you to register for more than one class at a time. It does not, however, prevent you from registering for multiple classes that occur at the same time. Please pay careful attention to the dates and times of the classes you select in order to avoid “double booking” yourself. We will not be held responsible for your selection of classes and any conflicts that occur.

Materials Fees
Materials fees (if any) will be paid directly to the instructor just prior to the start of class.
 

Notifications

  • Email is used to communicate class cancellations, changes, etc. If your email address changes, you are responsible for notifying Lessonface and the festival of that change. The festival WILL NOT be held responsible for incorrect email addresses.
  • Registrants are responsible for periodically checking their Lessonface Dashboard and the festival website for updates.

Cancellation of Classes

On rare occasions it may be necessary to cancel a class or several classes due to instructor illness or travel delays. Should this occur, the Festival will notify students as soon as possible via email.

In the event that a class is cancelled, the student will have the option of participating in another scheduled class, providing there is a place available in that class, OR a refund for the class will be given. The Festival WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for travel or hotel fees incurred by the student or any other fee related to the cancellation. If the student opts for a replacement class, NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.

Refund Policy

After confirming your acceptance into a class there is a limited refund policy.

  • 75% refund if requested by April 6th
  • 50% refund if requested between April 7th and April 20th 
  • No refund after April 20th.

You may request a refund by emailing with the email of the account registered, and class details.

Class Locations
Please make note of the location of your class. This year, classes will be held in three different locations:

  • Howard County Fairgrounds (the site of the Festival)
  • Turf Valley Resort (2700 Turf Valley Rd, Ellicott City, MD 21042
  • Howard County Arts Council (8510 High Ridge Rd, Ellicott City, MD 21043)

Please leave enough time to get to the offsite locations so you can get to class on time and not disturb classes in progress.

Lunches
Lunch is not provided.  Some locations are far from restaurants, so you may want to pack a lunch.
