Teach a Class

Each year, the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival offers classes in Fiber Arts and Shepherding as well as Family Activities.

Fiber Arts Seminars

The Fiber Arts Seminar Committee invites instructors from every heritage, culture, belief system, and lifestyle to submit a teaching proposal. In addition to seminars during the Festival, some take place a few days prior to the Festival itself.

If you are interested in offering a seminar, class, or lecture, please complete an online Proposal Form no later than July 31 for consideration.

Special Note for 2021: We had a wonderful slate of instructors lined up for the 2020 festival, and many classes had already sold out prior to the cancellation of the festival due to COVID-19. As these instructors were deprived of the opportunity to teach through no fault of their own, and they are all eager and willing to share their skills in 2021, will not be accepting any new proposals for 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact.
