It's finally time to announce the changes I've been working on all summer! Woo-Hoo! First thing: from now on, all of my events will be FREE. Yep, you heard me. I have decided to stop doing commercial events. It just feels wrong to charge for these sensory gifts- plus having a hefty price tag to cover costs alienates many of the people I would hope to attract. INSTEAD, I am going to be doing a minimum of 4 free events a year in locations all over the NW!
But here's the catch: now, the only way to attend a Betsy Hinze event is to be in the right place at the right time with the right mindset of curiosity, or to sign up to volunteer or host (which you can do on my website) I'll be using unconventional methods to invite guests to these events and you never know where you might find one next. I'll also keeping these events smaller so I can really focus on the art pieces taking center stage at them. I want to shy away from mass-production and give each piece the attention it deserves. They'll now be sold as Artifacts, since each one will be more than a piece of artwork; it will carry within it the memory of a magical experience. They will come beautifully packaged with a signed and stamped Certificate of Authenticity, and each piece will be now stamped with my logo.
And, another plot twist: MY ARTWORK WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC FOR ONE WEEK EVERY QUARTER! And the way to get "first dibs" on these special pieces is to support me on Patroeon so you can get a secret password for the first week of sales before it opens to the public for one more week.
Speaking of Patreon... you can support my vision for these events by becoming my patron through this awesome site. You can sign up for a monthly donation in your choice- with some awesome thank-you prizes for donations over $5 or $10/month. A little goes a long way! Also worth noting: I will do these events no matter what, no matter how many donations I get. They are my gift to the world, and any contribution you make is your gift to me. Every donation will go towards covering the costs of these events. <3 all="" associated="" be="" costs="" donations="" events.="" for="" my="" of="" span="" used="" will="">3>
Whew! Thanks for reading all the way to the end, and I'm excited to share this journey with all of you
