About Community Arts Guild:

The Community Arts Guild makes art of all sorts with people in East Scarborough: connecting people separated from each other because of distance, language, income, age, culture or ability; inviting everyone, including those who may not normally have the opportunity to participate; celebrating and discovering the traditions we all bring along; and building community through art-making. 

About the Position: 

The Sewing Room Assistant will be primarily responsible for supporting workshops for Community Arts Guild’s Virtual Sewing Room. The Sewing Room aims to increase access to art activities for residents in East Scarborough through offering free sewing workshops led by professional artists; sharing skills, materials, and supporting the creation of an art and textile-based project by each participant. The project is divided into two modules: step-by-step hand sewing tutorials, and Gallery show creations. Both modules will take place on Zoom. 

Skills and experience:

The Sewing Room Assistant will report to the Project Manager and the Artistic Director.
