A limited number of workshop grants up to $250 are available to member guilds. However no grants will be awarded during conference years. Workshop grants can be used to bring an instructor to the host city. Participation in the workshop must be made available to MAWS members state wide, and must be advertised through the MAWS newsletter, or by correspondence with the other MAWS guilds. Registration date must be specified in the workshop announcement. Local guild members will also be held to that date (no early registrations.)
Requests for funding should contain the following information:
Class to be offered
Date, time and place of the workshop
Total cost to local guild
Maximum number of participants
Plan for communicating to MAWS members
Beginning registration date
After the workshop is over, the host guild will send the board a written report to include the following:
Number of Participants
A description of the workshop content
What worked and what didn't
Photos if possible
Anything else that might be useful for future decisions.
The intent is the give future workshop planners some concrete information about the instructor, the class and the success of the workshop.
