Annual B'sue Boutiques Workshop
Our annual workshop will be held MAY 15-17, 2020 as planned...but there's a big change to the format! Because we can't be traveling this spring, the in-person event is cancelled. Instead, there will be a THREE DAY LIVE VIDEO class with MANY bonuses, things I couldn't even do at the hotel because of a few limitations at that venue. Now we can REALLY make a mess!! Even better, many who really never could travel to us here in Ohio will now have the opportunity to get in on the fun.
There will be THREE FULL DAYS of real-time fun and laughter--and learning! We'll get together in a special private Facebook classroom, just like I conduct the BALC class and the Responsible Repurposing class. We'll carry on via LIVE VIDEO in that classroom on Facebook, where you can comment and ask questions!
The virtual classroom at Facebook will stay open for a MONTH, until June 15, 2020. This way you can continue to post questions about what we did in class, upload photos of your work, and watch the videos over and over if you like. Somewhere at the beginning of June, we'll another LIVE video will for this class ONLY and you can ask more questions or report your progress...or maybe we can work on one last project together.
At the end the class, Javi says she can move the videos to YOU TUBE...where you can continue to watch them more if you like. They will be private videos, just for the class members,not for the public. We'll let you know more about that after we've made it happen.
Remember, if you can't get to the videos in real-time, NOT TO WORRY. Facebook saves them and you can go back and view them over and over again in the classroom group.
The classes will not be like our live hangout party videos on YouTube. They be fun, but they will be VERY structured and planned. We will be exploring all kinds of resin: two-part (like ICE Resin, the resin I generally use) UV resin which you use with a nail light, such as they use in a salon; and I'll do a demonstration on Ceralun two-part epoxy clay.
We will also explore how to make bezels out of heavy gauge wire and then fill them with resin, how to make little collages in resin, how to use MERMAID SAND, and how to make resin paper, how to make resin 'gems.'
Then, we'll also learn about making beads from sari ribbon and fiber, as well as hopefully, Tyvek beads, which are SO cool, I'm nuts about them--I know you will be, too.
Fee for the three-day class is ***$115.00.*** This includes everything but supplies. This is all the videos, access to the videos in the class group til June 15, 2020, also access to me as your teacher at the group til June 15, as well as the bonus LIVE session for this group only.
How to pay? Contact me by Facebook message or you can email me at email@example.com. You can also call here to the office if you would like. We accept all cards except American Express, and we also do PayPal. So if you want to pay by PayPal, give us your email for PayPal and we will bill you.
You can get in touch with me and pay your fee any time from March 23, 2020, up to May 13, 2020.
About supplies: They aren't included in the fee of course, but some of the items you will need are things you probably already have:
Some may have resin already. Any brand you think is good is fine. You need two part, like ICE resin, and you need UV resin.
If you want to work along with the class, you will need a UV light such as they use in salons to cure resin nails. I recommend you buy a large one with room for a lot of bezels. I like the ones that have variable settings, too. You can find all kinds of them at Amazon. Don't buy the cheapies, they take too long to cure and you can't do batches in them. I don't think the flashlight kind is a bad thing, I want one myself for touch-ups. As a rule, though, they are not what you will use long-term and you can't do batches with it. But there is no need to spend 100.00, either. To get a good one with lots of room in it, you should expect to pay 40-50.00.
I have a supply kit that will include a lot of things you'll need if you don't have them already. You can buy it if you need help gathering supplies; or, you can gather your own, either way, is fine. If you just want to watch the videos and see what we're doing, that's fine too, and you can get your supplies together later. The supply kit costs 90.00 and includes heavy shipping to anyone living in the US. If you are outside the US, it will cost a bit more because of international shipping.
If you get the kit, we'll have it to you in plenty of time for the class, so long as you order it soon enough. You should try to order it no later than the third week of April, as I may have to send out for more resin to make the kits and want to be sure I have it in time. You are welcome to ask for a kit at any point, including AFTER the class, but for availability in TIME for class, sooner the better.
One last note: the only way I can refund is if somehow there is no way I can follow through and do the workshop. If circumstances beyond my control came up, the first thing would be to reschedule rather than cancel. Since no one needs a plane ticket or hotel reservation to attend, that should not be an issue and I would let you know about any changes in dates immediately. For now, though, it's May 15-17.
Even if something comes up and you can't be present for the class in real-time, you can always come and view it later....over and over again!
