Work, study, and accessibility—these three words capture the vision of our Work-Study program. It is an opportunity to work in a program support/community service role on campus while earning credit towards taking an upcoming course in traditional craft.

Work-Study Options

Wednesdays at 1pm or at Special Events

Setting up campus for new classes each week is a huge task, and we can always use help! Expect to earn 2-3 hours of course credit per week. In addition, there are many tasks before, during and after special events that qualify for work-study credit. 

Contact Matt Nesheim at or (888) 378-9762 for more information regarding Wednesday Work Study.
