Members Share the Talent (MSTT) workshops are free to current BAKG members. Watch this space for more details on 2023 upcoming workshop.
The Members Share the Talent (MSTT) concept goes way back in BAKG history. Traditionally, one General Meeting in our annual calendar has been dedicated to MSTT. About a dozen BAKG members would volunteer to teach a technique or a project, and other members would sign up for the workshop of their choice. Enrollment was limited to the number of seats that fit at a table or in a circle. The workshops were free and the topics changed every year, depending on who was teaching and what they wanted to share.
Of course, this all changed with COVID restrictions on gathering in person. But MSTT Manager Susan Leibowitz has tweaked the format and is offering a series of virtual MSTT workshops instead. As a skilled teacher in her own right, who also happens to own camera stands and other equipment needed for teaching via Zoom, Susan has volunteered to be the hands for any workshop leader who is eager to teach but may lack the necessary technology.
In addition to virtual sessions, MSTT is scheduled to return to an in-person event in May 2023.
If you would like to explore the possibility of being a volunteer teacher—virtual or in-person—and/or have a suggestion for a topic of interest, please contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
