Visiting Artist Policy

Murray Hill Weaving is committed to the sharing of knowledge and skills, whether through basket making, chair seating, beading, or other art forms. Providing a comfortable, friendly, warm, and professional environment in which students may learn from experts is a key priority. The Murray Hill Weaving shop is designed to enhance students’ enjoyment and learning, and allow participants to return home feeling relaxed and deeply satisfied with their experience and project. In this spirit, we ask instructors to leave the shop in the same condition they found it.

We pride ourselves upon providing a space where artists/instructors are professionally presented, and where they have the best possible atmosphere, lighting, ambiance, and platform in which to teach and sell their products and works.

When an artist/instructor agrees to hold a class at Murray Hill Weaving, we use the photographs supplied by the artist/instructor to prepare and distribute promotional brochures to prospective students. Artists/instructors may prepare and send brochures independently from Murray Hill Weaving, as long as the materials are approved by Murray Hill Weaving prior to dissemination. Artists/instructors are encouraged to promote classes to personal contact and prospective student populations.

Murray Hill Weaving charges each instructor 20% of the total class fee (tuition and materials) collected for each class taught. The fee covers the cost of advertising, electricity, and refreshments, but does not apply to any baskets, tools, or
products the artist/instructor may be able to sell during classes. We encourage instructors to bring their products and art to sell.

Class registration forms include a cancellation policy to protect the artist/instructor from class “no shows.” Students are encouraged to bring their own lunch. Murray Hill Weaving will provide water, soft drinks, coffee, and tea to students/teachers. Lodging accommodations and/or dinner reservations are the artist’s/instructor’s responsibility.
