Private & small group chainmaille lessons
Having trouble wrapping your brain around a particular chainmaille weave? Wondering about materials and ring sizes? Would you like to make an inlay, but have no idea where to start? Let Rebeca help! Since 2002, she's taught thousands of students, and thanks to technology, you can now learn directly from her via Zoom from the comfort of your own home. If you'd like, your lesson can be recorded and available for replay/downloading for 120 days after your session.
Areas of focus:
- creating jewelry weaves from start to finish (see Blue Buddha Boutique for examples of projects)*
- understanding aspect ratio
- buying materials/supplies
- creating beautiful color palettes based on the supplies you have
- troubleshooting and helping you finish your projects
*Each 1-hour session that focuses on jewelry weaves includes PDF instructions from Blue Buddha Boutique for 1 project, if available. Rebeca knows many weaves, but not all of them, so please be sure to indicate what you'd like to learn for before purchasing. If you would like to learn a specific design you found online, please obtain permission from the designer beforehand; Rebeca will only teach someone else's design with their explicit approval.
Group chainmaille lessons–in which 2 or more people all learn the same weave–can also be arranged. Payment for the entire group must be made at once. Group rates are:
|2 people||$90/hour ($45 each)|
|3 people||$108/hr ($36 each)|
|4 people||$120/hr ($30 each)|
|$125/hr ($25 each)|
|each additional student (up to a maximum of 10 students total)||$22/hr each|
All students in a group session must learn the same weave; should you wish to tackle different patterns, please sign up individually for one-on-one sessions.
Payment for the entire group must be made at once. If one person in a group session cannot make it, no credit is offered; you can, however, offer the seat to a different attendee. Or, with at least 48 hours notice, you can reschedule the entire group session.
Teaching others your craft can be lucrative and extremely rewarding. Rebeca can work with you to get your instructional crafts business off the ground and help alleviate any first-day jitters around teaching. Established instructors can brainstorm high-level tactics, or troubleshoot specific scenarios, to help elevate their teaching to new levels.
"As an elementary school teacher, I was excited to see that a lot of [Blue Buddha Boutique's] teaching advice aligned with real pedagogical practices, with a focus on making chainmaille accessible to as many people as possible. The program equipped me not only to teach at B3, but to create an after school program where I worked, to bring chainmaille to the next generation." –Deborah S., Chicago IL
Running a crafts business has particular challenges, from managing inventory to marketing to avoiding creative burnout. Does it sometimes feel like you have no idea what you're doing? Do you wish you had someone to bounce ideas off of? Do you wish you had a better handle on organizing your schedule? Are you considering hiring someone and maybe freaking out about it a little?
Having grown a creative business from scratch to $1M+ in annual revenue, and being a voracious consumer of business books and courses, Rebeca has accumulated a wealth of experience and loves sharing what she's learned. She has a particular passion for leadership consulting and working with crafty entrepreneurs to transform them into extraordinary leaders.
Areas of focus:
- hiring your first employee; onboarding and training new team members
- building and leading a highly engaged and dedicated team
- setting up systems to scale your business
- feeding your creative soul while managing the business side of things
- running a business while managing chronic illness
Whether you'd like to learn a new instrument, create a diet you can stick with for life, run a marathon, or simply start an exercise routine that you enjoy, Rebeca can work with you to help identify barriers and "hack your habits" to set you on the path to success. Rebeca isn't an out-of-touch overachiever with no idea what it's like to struggle. Yes, she's ambitious and accomplished; she also manages health conditions, fends off depression and is a caregiver for multiple loved ones. Learning how to balance all that she does, while still taking care of herself, was a years-long journey. She's often had to develop new habits and new ways of doing things as she's evolved, and is familiar with adapting to ever-changing environments. Rebeca draws upon her studies in cognitive neuroscience to create routines and systems that the human brain is primed to thrive on. She'd love to help you find the unique tools that you need–based on your learning style, your personality and your goals–to take a big, intimidating goal and check it off your list.
Photo Editing Training (Adobe Photoshop®)
Most craftpreneurs wear many hats, including photographer. If you're not happy with your photos and would like to learn some tricks for taking better photos as well as photo editing, then a session with Rebeca is just what you need! She'll screenshare as she edits your photos to your satisfaction, and will then guide you through the process of doing it yourself. You can learn helpful techniques such as removing unwanted items from the background, or softening and smoothing facial lines (while still retaining a natural aesthetic). Access your Zoom session for up to 120 days, to give you time to fully master what you need to take your photos to the next level.
