Textiles at the Mary Ward Centre
The Mary Ward Centre is looking for applications from textile tutors who have a passion for their subject and can bring interesting and innovative ideas to our community outreach programme. We are seeking multi-disciplinary tutors with a variety of textile experiences including patchwork and quilting, hand stitch, weaving, needle felting, embroidery, and embellishment. Our classes take place in the community and tend to be mixed levels. Our learners are interested in learning new skills that have practical outcomes e.g. creating unique fabric pieces for a variety of uses ranging from fashion and home furnishings to embroidery and textile art for exhibitions. Learning the methods and techniques to create useful and decorative items such like small boxes and bags, ornaments and decorations, or textile jewellery pieces. We are interested in any other innovative craft ideas you have where a high-quality product can be achieved.
Successful candidates will be teaching and working with members and participants of groups in East London, and you will become part of a pool of Widening Participation tutors working to a variable hours contract.
The Mary Ward Centre is a specialist adult education college which offers high quality part-time adult education. We provide courses in a wide range of subjects including Arts & Crafts, Skills for Life, Languages, Computing & IT, Business, Music, Health and Humanities and we pride ourselves on having a creative and responsive curriculum. Around 5000 students attend the Centre each year and our student body reflects the diversity you would expect from our central London location (moving to our new building in East London in 2023).
Widening the reach of our adult education programme has always been a key part of the Mary Ward Centre’s ethos. We work in partnership with community groups and organisations across Camden, Hackney, Islington, Tower Hamlets, and Newham and our rich variety of outreach courses takes place in community centres, residential homes, schools, Libraries, older people’s centres, hostels, and health projects. We have a dynamic community outreach programme delivering courses in local community settings, in response to local needs and interests.
