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 1000 children and 1500 adult students across our Brooklyn and Manhattan locations each year. Studio access is also a crucial part of our mission. Each week, we offer over 25 hours of Open Studio in our Brooklyn location, giving community members access to a variety of textile arts materials, equipment, and general-use space to spread out and work on independent projects.
TAC seeks a part-time, textile-trained Studio Manager to join its active team in NYC. The SM is responsible for the daily general maintenance of the TAC studios (Brooklyn and Manhattan), overseeing smooth operating for all programs, and managing overall studio use and scheduling.
The Studio Manager reports to the Director of Operations and works closely with the Class Coordinator and other members of the TAC team. The SM must also have previous knowledge and experience in a range of textile arts, including: weaving, machine knitting, dyeing, screen printing. Experience working in a textile studio is highly preferred.
In addition to studio responsibilities, the SM will be expected to provide responsive, high-quality customer service that enhances the general public’s understanding of TAC’s services and programs. The GM 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 towards a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and a willingness to listen to and support others, is crucial to this role.
