Classrooms/Teaching Areas & Setup
Classrooms/teaching areas will have chairs and undraped tables. The Whole Bead Show/Bead Renaissance Show (The Show) will provide a minimum of one hour for the Teacher to set up before their first class. If possible, more time will be given, but cannot be promised. On consecutive days, Teacher can get into the classroom/teaching area a ½ hour in advance of class. This may be a stretch, but room rental fees are cost prohibitive for extra setup days.
The Show will advertise classes on our website, Facebook pages, and in any other ads and promotions that are done for the show. Teacher must promote classes by emailing, posting information about classes on social media, publishing on website, etc, including directions on how to sign up.
Class fees include an administration fee charged by The Show to cover room rental and administration costs. The current rate is $45/student for classes 1-4 hours and $80/student for classes 5+ hours. (For example if Teacher would like to get $100 per student for a full day class, the student will pay $180. Upon conclusion of the show, $100 goes to Teacher, $80 goes to The Show.)
Payment of Class Fees & 1099
Teacher will be paid their portion of the class fees within two weeks of show’s end. Any Teacher earning above $600 in fees (excluding administration fees) will receive a 1099. Please be prepared to give social security number after the show.
Additional lighting if needed
Tools and special items needed for class if needed
Table coverings if needed
Teacher will collect kit fees from students at the time of the class. These are not included in the class fee.
Teacher must be able to accommodate max number of students noted on contract, even on the day of the class, since students may be signed up at the show. Please be prepared last-minute signups.
Teacher no-show/cancellation (including acts of god)*
Teacher will be responsible for all refunded administration fees, currently $45/student for classes 1-4 hours and $80/student for classes 5+ hours. The Show will make every effort to transfer students to other classes to minimize this cost, however the Teacher must be prepared to pay The Show all refunded administration fees. *This only applies to teacher no-show or cancellation by teacher. Does not apply if Whole Bead or venue cancels.
Travel & Lodging
Teacher is responsible for travel and lodging expenses
Students can transfer class fees to a different Teacher or cancel with a partial refund (administration fees are non-refundable at any time) until 30 days before the class. After the 30 days, there are no refunds or transfers of any kind; however student can send another person in their place without additional cost.
Google Sheet In-progress Class List
The Show provides access to an in-progress Google Sheet for the Teacher that has student name, address, and email. This sheet may change at any time, but gives the Teacher an idea of how the class sign-ups are progressing. It is updated once a week.
