Instructors

Join CraterWorks to share your knowledge and experience with our members, and potential new members as an Instructor. CraterWorks is seeking new class proposals as well as qualified individuals to teach existing classes to our community members.

Seeking programming for custom team-building workshops and classes. Classes may include shop orientations, tool and technique classes, and project-based classes.  Classes are typically 2 or 4 hours long and take place on weekday evenings and weekends. Most classes are single sessions and are offered 1-3 times per month, though more advanced project-based classes may meet at least once a week for 4-8 weeks. Class sizes are intentionally kept small to encourage hands-on engagement from every student, and generally limited to 4 or 5 students.

Qualified candidates have previous teaching experience, identify as a builder/maker, are passionate about teaching others, and will be prepared to demonstrate their skills and teaching style within a mock-workshop with select CraterWorks staff.
