Many of my students have been on Pinterest for quite awhile and many of them regularly bring their iPads and tablets to show me images and share inspiring images with their peers.
As many people will know I'm not a huge fan of social media! Whilst I enjoy being able to make contact with my customers and interact with them regularly, I believe that in some ways social media is taking over and is affecting our personal relationships. As with everything in life, a think balance is key.
There has been so many wonderful workshops here at The Whimsical Bead and so many more planned. I have always loved classes and workshops. I guess I am one of those people who have a 'thirst for knowledge'. I am also someone who loves a hearty chat and a good discussion too.
These days it is easy to get caught up in the hype of the internet and social media and we can forget how great it can be to actually physically attend a workshop. There is so much information online now - tutorials, e-books, webinars, pinterest, Facebook, YouTube videos....the list goes on. This is fantastic for those of us who live in remote locations or for whatever reason cannot attend workshops but for those of you who do have the option of a physical workshop does this overload of online media prevent you from attending physical workshops?
After the excitement of Christi Friesen coming to visit, we had yet another international artist on their way to the studio. The amazing Melanie Muir.
Melanie was due to arrive at the studio on Friday and spend the weekend teaching a very excited group of ladies how to create her rock cuffs and pendants. I had already completed Melanie's online rock cuffs class so I knew that what we were about to learn was going to be GREAT!
