Teacher Instructions and Application Form
 
We eagerly await your application to teach at U-MAKE. Each year we need about 12 teachers presenting a great mix of sew and no sew classes. 

The mix is hard! We may have a great class idea from a fantastic teacher, but it may be similar to another class we have committed to, or maybe we can't afford total travel reimbursement and we may be hesitant to ask you to come play without more reimbursement. Let us know! 

We also ask that we be allowed to keep all applications on file for up to three years. Our goal is to always beat last year's attendance and fun!
 
  • General Time Guidelines
  • Applications—Accepted anytime!
  • Selections—April, May and June.  Sometimes pushing into July.  
  • Notification of Teachers and Acceptance—June and July.  Sometimes pushing into August.  
  • Announcement of Line Up—July and August.  Always by Labor Day.  
  • Enrollment started—October and November.  We have a preferential enrollment process, allowing teachers, staff and Scholarship attendees to enroll in their choice of classes, with those attending previous years to enroll next.  After these groups have enrollment, then we have Open Enrollment, if any openings are available.  
 
Teachers, we can offer a free registration (food and lodging from Friday evening until Sunday at 4PM) to U-MAKE, and the best time we can provide!
 
For full registration we ask our instructors to either teach 2 half day (approx 2.5-4 hour class depending on morning or afternoon classes), or one full day (8 hour) class. Some projects may need even more time than one day, and can extend to 12 hours (a day and a half) or even 14 hours (all day both Saturday and Sunday).  We are also offering short classes on Friday night, too.  We will try to schedule around your needs and desires.
 
If you want to teach just one half day class, we can offer registration half off! 
Either way is a great way to have fun at U-MAKE! 
 
Thank you for submitting an application! Remember we are trying to balance a great mix of classes for each year.  We respectfully ask that we keep all class applications on file for three years.  Please complete the form and email to us.  Thanks!
