Craft courses and workshops across the UK

Notice to all UK based tutors on craftcourses.com:

Craft tutors sought for international education event!
Do you teach glasswork, woodwork, candle or soap making? Or do you teach a craft that could work for large classes of young people?

An Abu Dhabi craft education event is seeking tutors of: fused glass, woodwork, candle-making, soap making and other crafts that capture the organisers' imagination.

 

All expenses paid plus fees

We have been in recent discussions with the producers of a large interactive makers fair taking place in Abu Dhabi on 2nd to 8th March 2014. The event will receive over 1000 15-25 year old students and the aim is to give them a taste of Making Things - so right up our street! 

There are openings for several craft workshops and we have been asked to garner interest among the craft tutors of craftcourses.com. All expenses paid plus an agreed daily fee. The tutors need to be able to run workshops three times a day to up to 30 students (can be shorter) plus some drop in workshops for the public. The workshops ideally will have a 'takeaway' component or a team exercise. 

Some of the equipment and tooling may have to be sourced locally in Abu Dhabi rather than shipped from Britain and so we urgently need to know, from those of you who are interested:

Material/tools required
Materials and tool costs (approx.)
What you propose for the workshop (e.g. include if there is a 'take away' for the students)
Group project or individual (or both)?


Please could anyone interested in being part of this trip email kate@craftcourses.com with notes on the questions above by the end of this weekend please.

As yet, no-one has reached the Platinum award (fifty 5 star reviews) - who's going to break the barrier?!
Finally, please remember that every UK craft course provider is entitled to have a free course page that will appear in our listings, so please make sure yours is up to date! If you have any doubts about whether it's worth doing, read what other providers say here!

That's all for now folks - hope 2014 brings you everything you hoped for... maybe a trip to Abu Dhabi?! 

If I wasn't 6 months pregnant I would be out there like a shot!

Looking forward to hearing from you.
