General Information

Dear Instructor,


We are accepting class/instructor applications NOW through September 25th, 2019. is now accepting applications for instructors and classes for the Tucson Gem & Jewelry Show Winter 2020!

We will be hosting jewelry making classes at the JOGS show January 30th - February 10th, 2020.

There will be full day and half day classes depending on what projects you want to teach and what time frame they take to create.

  • Instructors will be compensated $50 per student for half day classes.
  • Instructors will be compensated $75 per student for full day classes.
  • Enrollment will be capped at 12 students per class unless otherwise advised by the instructor.
  • The price of the class plus the kit fee is charged all up front and Instructor will receive 100% of the kit fee.

New For 2020: An estimated advance payment of your collected kit fees will be sent to you on January 24th, 2020 prior to the beginning of the show. (Note: this is estimated as registrations will remain open through the time of your class, and its likely more students will be added that won't be included in your estimated kit fee payment.)

Also New For 2020: Your remaining compensation will be calculated and settled on your final day of teaching, and the ACH payment will be processed within 24 hours of your last class.

Please note: We will NOT be supplying the tools in class. It will be up to you to bring your classroom kits, (which most of you have already) or you can have a required tool list for students and we can provide order forms and have the necessary tools that students purchase (in advance) ready for them at the show, free of shipping charges.
