Want to teach at 32 Henry Street? 


Hawthorn Community House is a not-for-profit community based organisation. And we believe that anyone can share their knowledge and things they are passionate about. 

Do you have a specialist subject? A niche? A skill that you want to share? We are always looking for teachers to run classes at Hawthorn Community House and you could be one of them!

Hawthorn Community House offer affordable, fun classes throughout the year. We make our classes accessible to all members of our community and we try and operate within the means of most people and keep our classes and workshops affordable. 

Our teachers all come from the local community, often local small-business owners or amateur enthusiasts. We also collaborate with local businesses and organisations for running our workshops, putting on special events and participating in festivals.

Our classes typically take place during the week and our workshops on a Tuesday evening every third Tuesday of the month. 
Most classes run for the length of the school terms, i.e. approx. 10 weeks per term and we have four terms. We aim to cover a variety of topics and interests, from Children’s and Teen activities, the Arts, Health and Wellbeing, Language and Literacy and Technology. Our workshops focus on topical subjects such as Kombucha, Preserving, Bee keeping, Christmas Wreaths, cooking demonstrations etc. 

If you have an idea for a class and you think there is enough general interest to start a class please put together a plan for your class and think about what it is you offer and what students will get out of the class. Contact us for an initial meeting.
