Who can participate?
Ceramic Clay Artists that are BOC members that are bloggers that are making beads (and related items) from earth clay. Not a member yet - sign up on the Beads-of-Clay.org website.
Anyone can visit the blogs, participate in the giveaways (there will be more time for commenting this time around and lots of giveaways!)
We are having a general theme of "Signs of Spring" to inspire us out of a long cold winter into a season of new growth.
On Sunday, March 6, 2011 Beads-of-Clay members will invite you into their studios through their blog posts. You will see photos, learn about inspirations, process, current work that is going on in their studios.
The artists will either host a "Live Open Studio Event" on their blogs from 1:00-4:00PM EST and host 2 giveaways and be available to interact with visitors. We also ask artists to run a special sale for visiting customers.
Not every artist will be able to make it to the Live Event, so we are going to have a second listing separated out for "Stagnant Open Studio Event" where they will create a post ahead of time. We ask that those artists still participate in the giveaways that day and run a special sale for visiting customers as well. If anyone comes up with a word better than "Stagnant" to describe this - please comment below!
- Artists are asked to host 2 giveaways on their blog that day.
- The main Beads-of-Clay Blog post will be hosting a huge giveaway (a collection of donated beads from most of the participating artists).
- And the additional giveaway for the participating artists that send in 2 beads to BOC's Mary Harding for the main BOC giveaway. That 2nd bead will be put into a drawing for all the donating/participating artists. One artist will be picked to win that giveaway.
