Would you like to get paid to run an arts workshop?

Our arts worker training offers students with a creative skill of some sort, the opportunity to gain free training in how to run arts workshops.

Once trained, students will become part of our pool of arts workers who we will call upon from time to time to deliver activities around campus or online – and you will be paid for this work.

How much will I be paid?

We currently pay students a fee of £80 for a two hour workshop (plus all material costs) and £60 for a one hour workshop; we cover the cost of all the materials too. Workshops are usually only open to other students and we limit the capacity to 12. 

Who can apply?

This opportunity is open to all UG, PGT and PGR students including Loughborough London students (as the training is online). You should expect to still be a student at Loughborough by the end of the spring term 2023 in order to be eligible for this training.

You don’t necessarily need to be an arts student; this is open to students involved in any art form. Your creative skill could be in a craft like crochet, embroidery, pottery, weaving, macrame, origami or lino printing but it could also cover things like photography, music production, creative writing and performing arts. You do need to show that you have good people skills as well as being competent within your chosen art form.

LU Arts is committed to inclusivity and representing the student community we serve. We welcome applications from students of all backgrounds.
