Craft Events & Workshops Coordinator (Part-Time) - New York, NY

About the Craft Workshop & Events Coordinator Role

The Neon Tea Party is currently in a growth phase and is looking to bring on a Craft Events & Workshops Coordinator to increase the number of private & corporate events, brand activations, and workshops booked each month. This is a unique opportunity for a design-loving, entrepreneurially-minded individual (preferably with a passion for crafting!) to get in on the ground floor of an emerging creative upstart and to be an essential player in scaling the business to new heights.

Craft Events & Workshops Coordinator will be charged with managing TNTP’s event booking process through the entire event lifecycle, from prospecting new clients and nurturing warm leads through managing event logistics both prior-to and on-site. As the lead events contact for the business, candidate must be highly motivated and personable. It is preferable for candidate to have 1-3 years of event/project management, sales or related experience.

The position is part-time (20 hrs/week + events). Pending successful performance, the role is intended to grow into a full-time opportunity as the business continues expanding.

Workshops & Events Coordinator will report directly to owner Marisa Morrison.

Craft Events & Workshops Coordinator will also have the opportunity to develop skills as a craft instructor, helping to lead crafting activations on-site.

The Neon Tea Party is located in Chelsea, Manhattan. Candidate will work remotely for all computer-based work, but will be needed on-site at New York-based events and for occasional meetings at our NYC office.

  • Longgg before pom poms, there was jewelry making. Fun fact: Making beaded and string jewelry is my OG craft! I cannot recall a time in my life when I didn’t periodically bust out my bead stash and have at it. 😜⠀
⠀
And speaking of bead stash, my jewelry supplies have followed me from move-to-move since childhood, and many of the beads and string I acquired in elementary and middle school! 👧🏻⠀
⠀
I’ve also inherited my mom’s own bead stash (she was a jewelry designer!), which consists of a sophisticated array of semi-precious that I rarely touch since they’re so pretty and special. ✨⠀
⠀
All this to say, jewelry making has always been in the pipeline for TNTP and I’m SO excited to slowly begin building out educational content and opportunities for you guys to become jewelry makers, too. 💕⠀
⠀
I’d love to know - what was YOUR first craft love?? Is there a craft you feel connected to more than any others?? Share below!! ✂️⠀
