ADX is a collaborative makerspace where individuals and organizations make and learn. By sharing tools, knowledge and experience, we’re doing things better – by working together. ADX celebrates craftsmanship, innovation and entrepreneurship in its many forms, and is looking to add passionate and qualified instructors to the community.

Join ADX as an instructor and share your knowledge and experience with our members, and potential new members. ADX is seeking new class proposals as well as qualified individuals to teach existing classes.

Classes may include shop orientations, tool and technique classes, and project-based classes. Classes are typically 3 or 4 hours long and take place on weekday evenings and weekends.

Most classes are single sessions and are offered 1-3 times per month, though more advanced project-based classes may meet at least once a week for 4-8 weeks.
Class sizes are intentionally kept small to encourage hands-on engagement from every student, and generally limited to 4 or 5 students.

Qualified candidates have previous teaching experience, identify as a builder/maker, are passionate about teaching others, and will be prepared to demonstrate their skills and teaching style within a mock-workshop with select ADX staff.

Please send your resume and/or portfolio, references, and a statement of interest including which existing classes here at ADX you’d love to teach to jobs@adxportland.com.
