2023 Call for Makers in Residence

Call for Makers in Residence

PPLD is looking for two makers for the 2023 Maker in Residence Program.

What is a maker? A maker can be an artist, a techno-wizard, an inventor, a crafter, and lots more!

But specifically, we seek makers who…

  • love their craft and possess skills to teach and share
  • are curious about the world around them and enjoy tinkering
  • enjoy collaborating with others

The Maker in Residence will teach classes to our patrons and envision, develop, and create a large-scale community project. Since 2014, the Maker in Residence program has hosted over 30 creative individuals, who introduced the El Paso County community to a wide range of projects and ideas including the following:

  • bookbinding & papermaking
  • drawing and painting (acrylics, watercolors, oils, alcohol ink)
  • stop motion / animation
  • songwriting and dancing
  • polymer clay
  • origami
  • sewing

Applications will be taken through Mon, Nov. 21.

You will also need to complete and attach these two forms to the application linked to above:
