Glassblower and Hot Glass Instructor
The Glassblower and Hot Glass Instructor will work in PGC’s hot shop, which will include teaching classes and workshops, doing glassblowing demonstrations, leading tours as well as assisting with production and other special projects. The Hot Glass Instructor will need to work closely with both the administrative and technical staff at PGC and will need to convey a team attitude in all interactions with staff, students and the public.
The Hot Glass Instructor will work with the Creative Projects Manager on special glass products such as Art on Fire centerpieces, architectural projects or other opportunities as they arise.
This position requires an individual with the ability to work a very flexible and sporadic schedule including weekend and evening hours. The Outreach Coordinator will set the schedule for the Hot Glass Instructor and although every effort will be made to maintain plenty of advance notice of scheduling changes, some last-minute cancellations or changes may occur.
