Member Grants and Scholarships


Grants help our members grow and share new skills

The Guild awards grants to members to supplement fees for basketry conferences, retreats, workshops, and travel costs up to $500 per event.  In return the Guild asks for the grantee to provide a program or workshop to share their new knowledge with other members.

Scholarships encourage member participation

The Guild also has two scholarship programs to help make basketry more accessible to our members, especially those with limited means.

You Deserve Credit! Lottery for Guild Volunteers
All Guild volunteers, especially those who would most benefit from this financial support, are invited to submit their names for a blind drawing. Credits can be used for any services, supplies, and tools sold by the Guild, including workshops and class fees.

Tidal Twinings Retreat Scholarship
The Guild offers, via lottery, a substantial credit toward the cost of attending the annual Tidal Twinings Retreat. While all Guild members are eligible for this drawing, we especially encourage those with more limited means to take advantage of this program.
