Workshop Etiquette

Heart of Texas Bead Retreat

Workshop Etiquette

These guidelines are developed using common sense, a sense of fairness, politeness, and above all, consideration for others. 

  • ALWAYS WEAR YOUR NAME TAG: this helps the teacher identify you by name.
  • BE ON TIME: arrive early enough to be set up and ready when class starts.  This includes returning from lunch on time.
  • LISTEN TO THE TEACHER: if you don’t understand, or need help, ask for help from the teacher, not your beading neighbor.
  • ASK QUESTIONS…BUT remember this is a group setting. Please do not monopolize the teacher’s time or discuss unrelated personal beading projects.
  • KEEP CELL PHONES SILENT AND OFF THE WORK TABLE: DO NOT ANSWER PHONE CALLS or TEXT MESSAGES IN THE CLASSROOM.
  • KEEP CONVERSATION TO A MINIMUM: lots of talking is distracting to your teacher and your classmates. Use your “inside voice” so others are not disturbed.
  • RESPECT COPYRIGHT LAWS AND YOUR TEACHER: Project instructions are not to be copied or taught without written permission from the teacher.
  • DO NOT TOUCH ANYONE’S BEADWORK unless invited to do so and then only if your hands are clean.
  • NO FOOD in the classroom please.
  • NO PERFUME or smelly lotion.  Many people are allergic to perfumes – 20 people in a classroom wearing perfume can be overwhelming for us all!

Happy Beading!
