Seeking Artist Instructors

Here at GoggleWorks, we are always looking to expand our educational offerings and introduce new ideas and techniques to our students and community. Our educational offerings are only as good as the artist instructors that teach here. To that end, we invite qualified artist instructors to propose classes and/or workshops in each of our seven teaching studios, including: ceramics, hot glass, warm glass, metalsmithing, photography, printmaking, and woodworking. For instructors who teach outside of these mediums, special topic classes and workshops enable us to move beyond the traditional. We are always looking to expose our student body to new mediums, methods, and materials; nothing is off limits.
