Teach a Workshop
MakeHaven is seeking presenters to design and lead workshops about making at MakeHaven. MakeHaven has a large community of people interested in learning about: mechanics, electronics, crafts, art, design, programming, cooking, biology, chemistry, fabrication, metal working and woodworking. For approved workshops MakeHaven will host, help promote the event and handle collection of workshop fees. Many instructors chose to share their knowledge for with free classes workshops and demonstrations. Many instructors may need to generate income from classes. If agreed in advance instructors of group classes earn get 50% of the class income (not including materials fees). So how much you make will depend on the market value of the type of class you’re offering, how many students you can accommodate, and how many of those seats we can fill. Our target is people above 18 years of age so we want to aim our workshops to be appropriate for adults or have adults or include parents or guardians in building with younger people. As a makerspace MakeHaven is a more dynamic environment than a typical classroom and members might be using the space concurrently with a workshop. We have a projector and work areas. The space is best suited for smaller groups (15 or less).
You can propose a class using the Class Proposal Form.
