Workshop Grants


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:

  • Instructor

  • 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.
