Share Your Passion

Workshops at events are a wonderful way to share knowledge among our community. It is up to us to educate each other and spread our joys and passions. If you are enthusiastic about a topic, chances are someone else in the community will share that enthusiasm. Please consider becoming a part of our sharing and learning community by offering a workshop or class!

Our presenters are an incredibly important part of each event! If you have ideas for a workshop or programming that you would like to share with the Wisteria, please click below to fill out an application. 

                                                Workshop submissions for Autumn Fires 2022 are due by Thursday, September 1st, 2022.

Guidelines for Workshops:

Can be 45-90 minutes. If you need more time, consider offering a multi-part workshop. 

Some sites have electricity available; most do not. Keep this in mind when selecting a workshop location.

We request that only special or ritualistic workshops  in the evenings, please keep this in mind when selecting a time.

Once you submit your application, you can expect an email in 5-7 days confirming we received your application. Once the application deadlines have passed, we will review, schedule and discuss placement of our programming and you will receive a second email in mid-late September regarding your workshops time and place. Upon arrival, you will be given a program which will list your workshop’s location. 

Note that if you are chosen to present a workshop at an event, you will still need to register for AUTUMN FIRES.
