      We offer courses in several different formats depending on the season: half-day, multi-day workshops, or 7-week night courses. We have well equipped studio spaces to suit a variety of needs and projects and instructors will have an opportunity to sell their work or tools and materials, as well as participate in additional community events throughout the festival/gathering. A mentorship program is offered to all new-to-us instructors.

      In-person instructors will receive $34/h as well as a $25 material fee, for weekend workshops courses, and $50 material fee for 7-week courses, for class samples and demonstration materials used. Each course can have an additional associated material fee that will be paid by the participants to the instructor the day of the workshop.

      COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS – Our classes have been operating in person following Public Health guidelines during the 2022-2023 academic year. We will inform you in advance regarding our health/safety protocols closer to the beginning of the course. Instructors are considered contractors and are required to adhere to the same policies as GNB employees.
