Officially Announcing Upcoming Virtual Workshops!

In this age of abundant caution I've come to the decision with some of my teaching venues to offer classes in a virtual format. Because my virtual format is a bit different from other forms out there, I wanted to take a moment to lay it all out for you . . .

Workshops will be in a video format, produced and edited and accessible with login and password for a 48 hour time period. During those 48 hours you can watch and re-watch the video as many times as you like. The advantage to this format is that you can replay and portion of the video, take breaks at your convenience, and even bead along, pausing and starting as necessary. Videos will follow the same sequence as the printed instructions which will be provided ahead of the scheduled class time and cover every step of the project. After the workshop's allotted time frame is over, there will be a scheduled one-hour zoom "after party" where those who would like can gather with me to go over questions, talk about the project or just simply catch up in "person."

Workshops are limited to the same maximum number as live classes so please be sure to register ahead of time. For details as to where you can catch a virtual workshop, please visit the Road Show page of the website.

Coming Soon! . . . . online learning
The "new normal" resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a re-creating of how we think, work and how we interact. Many readers are now turning to online alternatives which reduce concerns of exposure and give those unable to attend workshops a viable option for continued education in beading. Although I have never been much of a video technology artist, I am starting to explore the wonderful world of online tutorials. I am currently working on creating new tutorials (some free to all and some available for purchase) which will eventually be posted for online viewing. For me there is a significant learning curve with video production and at this point I am not quite ready to release videos, but please stay tuned and please be patient . . . as soon as videos are available for viewing it will be announced here as well as in the monthly newsletter, the Just Let Me Bead Facebook page and the @justletmebead Instagram feed.
