Have a craft you’d like to share? A skill you’d love to teach?

The Waterford Foundation is seeking instructors to teach weekend craft classes as part of the Waterford Craft School.

Join us as we aim to preserve handmade crafts such as quilting, weaving, pottery, furniture-making, basket weaving, and blacksmithing by educating the next generation of artisans. Classes in building arts are also encouraged, such as traditional construction methods, old and historic building restoration, and adaptive reuse.

The Waterford Foundation will register students, collect tuition, provide the classroom space, and pay a fee to each instructor. Multiple instructors for one course will split this fee. Lunch will be provided for all students and instructors.
