I love to learn but don't want to be a workshop groupie who ends up
with a scattered brain? Is this a good idea of mine since the
courses seem to be very complimentary too each other or will I
make a mistake by trying to cramp in too much?
Go for it! What an opportunity! Take your own favorite pillow, or
whatever you need to be comfortable. Eight weeks isn't too much,
just make sure you have whatever comforts of home and things to take
care of soreness and stiffness, assuming you're not used to sitting
and making jewelry all day for that many weeks. Though perhaps
you'll adjust by then.
But my, yes, go for it! Since you can get away, do it! Send us
virtual postcards and tell us all about what you learn!
