WildCraft Studio School offers students and recent grads the opportunity to intern each season. Interns are involved with many aspects of our program from assisting during classes, to helping in the garden, organizing the studios and keeping our looms and knitting machines running well. The WildCraft season is divided into 2 terms. Each term is slightly different based on the opening and closing dates of each studio.
WildCraft Portland offers 2 terms: Feb-June & September-December.
STUDIO INTERN, Portland Studio: WildCraft Studio School offers internships for 2 highly motivated Studio Interns for each term of the 2018 season. The Studio Internship requires 12 hrs weekly commitment, which can be split between assisting in evening, and weekend workshops with the occasional special project. Interns’ main responsibilities will be in assisting teachers, setting up for classes, cleaning up after classes and supporting students during workshops. These positions will provide hands-on teaching experience as well opportunities to learn new textile & craft skills. Interns are encouraged to take as many classes as they wish, and are only responsible for the cost of materials fees. The ideal applicant will have experience in weaving or dying, and the patience to handle tedious textile processes. We look for applicants with strong work ethic, varied skills and the ability to work independently. This is an unpaid internship. College credit may be available through your hosting institution.
