HIRING: TEACHERS

Be a part of Sydney’s most exciting maker community!

 

We are always looking for friendly, passionate, approachable and skilled teachers! If you have a deep knowledge and ongoing professional practice that has equipped you with skills you’d like to pass on, there may be an opportunity for you to teach in our class program.

 

While it’s not essential that you meet the following list of criteria, these are some things that we look for in a teacher:

  • A practice focused more on design/fabrication rather than art.
  • Significant social media following.
  • Possibly some experience teaching or a strong desire to learn to teach.

 

We believe that Australian craft and design should reflect a distinct Australian material culture. In support of this our education program supports and champions a diverse group of Australian creatives doing intelligent work, work that reflects locality, both materially and culturally.

 

We are looking for teachers that reflect these values and goals.

 

If this sounds like you, shoot us an email with a brief outline of the stuff you’d love to teach and some examples of your work to learn@makerspace.org.au
