What does it mean to be an Instructor at Protohaven?

Instructors are able to teach a single session course, at least one course a month, or an intensive course, which is a deep dive into a subject one day a week for four weeks. Essentially, you get to share your talents and passion while getting paid for it. 

All of our instructors are on a non-permanent, contract basis. This means that depending on our class needs any course that you teach may be added or removed as needed to meet demand.

Instructors also receive:

  • Clearances on all equipment needed for your class(es)
  • Pay rate of $30/hour
  • Course development stipend
  • 50% off Protohaven membership
  • A cool space to meet new and seasoned makers!

Ideal applicants have one of the following:

  • Class material ready to plug into our system.
  • The ability to create a class, which includes a clear plan and set of objectives.
  • The skills required to instruct any of our currently offered classes.

Not sure if your skill is needed or unsure if we have the equipment to support your material?
