Instructor Prospectus

Thank you for your interest in teaching at Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts!  
 Accepting Proposals for 2020: Deadline August 1, 2019

At Shake Rag Alley, we like to create a sense of community and an aura of fun and enthusiasm among our students and instructors. The networking and fellowship brings everyone new friends, new ideas, and new opportunities (and, we hope, for the artists, commissions and sales!).

Our classes are small, usually 8 to 12 students with minimums set at 3-5 students depending on what it takes to cover instructor fees while keeping student fees in line.

Workshops can range from one half day to a full day to two days or more. We have several classroom spaces on the historic Shake Rag Alley campus, as well as a large jewelry studio space, the Lind Pavilion around the corner, and the Sardeson Pottery Studio a five-minute walk away. When appropriate we also sometimes utilize other venues in the community or hold classes outdoors under tents or trees.

To submit a teaching proposal, please complete and submit the Workshop form 

or send us your own materials to:

Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts
Attn: Curriculum Committee
18 Shake Rag St.
Mineral Point, WI 53565

Or Email your forms and attachments to us.

Feel free to include any class description materials you may have and, especially important, please provide a photo (print or electronic) of completed work representative of what students will be doing in your workshop, and a headshot of yourself.

We will contact you as promptly as possible to let you know if and when we will be able to schedule your class.


Again, thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you.
