About Textile Arts Center:

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility founded in 2009 dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. TAC’s mission is to unite and empower the textile community. We do this by providing accessible, skills-based classes, artist programs, and community events to reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. We’re proud to offer a diverse range of programming from a fully equipped 6,800 square foot studio in Brooklyn.

 

Position Overview:

Since our founding in 2009, TAC has offered a wide range of textile classes, including After School, Mini Camp, and Summer Camp options for kids, along with month-long, weekend, and drop-in workshops for adults. With over 200 adult classes per year and ongoing youth programs, we reach over 900 children and 1200 adult students across our Brooklyn and Manhattan locations each year.

The Class Coordinator serves as the main administrative point of contact for all youth and adult classes and supports the daily operations of the organization as needed. The Coordinator must be comfortable organizing and maintaining information across multiple platforms, both internally and externally (including an online registration system and the TAC website). The successful candidate will be highly organized, detail-oriented, and committed to promoting and ensuring the success of all classes.

As the “face” of TAC, the Class Coordinator also provides responsive, high-quality customer service that enhances the general public’s understanding of TAC’s services and programs. The Coordinator will regularly respond to public inquiries made in person, online, and over the phone, working closely with other TAC staff to ensure the general public is informed about specific TAC classes, events, and programs. TAC students represent many diverse communities, abilities, geographies, and ages.  Sensitivity toward a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and a willingness to listen to and support others, are crucial to this role.
