Thank you for your interest in teaching at WildCraft! We promote our classes as intensive, hands-on experiences, where students can arrive as beginners, and leave feeling confident in having learned a new skill, or gained insight into a new field or discipline. We encourage an intimate environment, where teachers are curious about their students, open to personal dialog and friendly conversation. In most of our classes, students leave with a finished product, or a set of samples and developed experiments.
In addition to studio-based-making workshops, WildCraft often collaborates with other makers, farmers and naturalists to host off-site workshops. These arrangements are subject to all the same expectations as normal WildCraft classes, with the main difference being that they are not taught from our studio. Foraging, mushrooming, plant ID, mineral harvests, etc would all be good examples of off-site workshops.
Before you propose a workshop, please take a careful look through our current offerings to make sure your workshop would be a good fit for our studio.
