Instructors, Educators and Teachers for Fall & Winter Terms

Full Job Description

Artisans Asylum is looking for teachers, educators, creatives, and makers to join our education program team. These are short small classes and workshops in various disciplines and creative fields

About Artisans Asylum

Artisan’s Asylum is a vibrant and diverse community workshop - we're a 52,000 SF fabrication wonderland where the arts, learning, and entrepreneurship come alive. With two adjacent open innovation spaces in the heart of Allston-Brighton. We host shared workshops, artist studios, classes, and community events. As a non-profit community workspace, we strive to connect anyone with access to the tools and talent needed to build the things they love.

Why teach at Artisans?

You are giving people the ability to make and create. You would teach people how to safely and effectively use tools. You’re helping your community, having fun, and making some money doing something you already love to do. Pass this along and consider joining our team to help others bring their inspired ideas into form.

How much could I make?

Teachers of group classes get 50% of the class tuition. How much you make will depend on the market value of the type of class you’re offering and how many of those seats fill. While we do our part marketing your class, instructors who help promote often see higher enrollments and more money in their pockets.

Instructors can also set up private lessons in our space when it’s available — you can set your own rates, but we ask for 35% of the revenue in exchange for the use of our facilities, and we ask you not to monopolize the relevant shop area.


  • Prior experience as Instructor, Educator, or Teacher (not required)

  • Strong knowledge of the subject matter you propose to teach, including safety.

  • Ability to share your passion and enthusiasm for your curriculum

  • Capacity to supervise group work

  • Commitment to building an inclusive and warm community environment

  • Supportive, flexible disposition

How To Apply:

If you have course ideas to propose, we ask that you submit your class ideas for on-site classes at Artisans Asylum Course Submission Form for On-site Courses or for online classes at Course Submission Form for Online Courses. Next, email the form to teach@artisansasylum.com with a course outline, your resume, and a portfolio, if you have one. We will reach out to schedule an interview and guide you through the onboarding process.

Once we’ve had an opportunity to meet and provide guidance on the class idea, we invite you to review our Instructor's Handbook where you’ll find more information about hiring paperwork, how to submit for payment, and how to see and review your course roster.

Still have more questions about class proposals and being an instructor? We have launched a new set of FAQs to meet many of the questions raised about Education programming and being an instructor. Please check these out to learn more about teaching at the Artisans Asylum.
