Class Proposal Form 2013

1. Artisan's Asylum Class Proposal

 
If you would like to teach a class or hold a workshop at Artisan's Asylum, please fill out this survey.
- Please read each question description carefully to be sure that your responses contain the required information.
- Fill this survey out once for each class/workshop you want to propose.

The first half of the survey covers the basic proposal and logistical details, the second collects material for the registration page and promotional materials for the class.

I highly recommend drafting the answers to these questions in a separate document you can save for future reference or in case anything goes wrong while you're submitting this form.

You'll likely be contacted at the end of the month in which you submit your class proposal. If you have any questions or concerns before then, contact molly [at] artisansasylum [dot] com.
