Okan Arts Online Workshops

Meet with Patricia Belyea, from the comfort of your home sewing studio, for five workshop sessions of instruction and inspiration. Limited to 25 students, each workshop provides an intimate experience as well as the opportunity to virtually meet other like-minded quilters.

The workshops are designed to challenge you creatively as you learn new skills.

You have two weeks to conceive and complete your homework project before you attend your next workshop session.

To share your homework, Okan Arts provides a private online gallery site for you to upload your work and share with the other students.

Each workshop session is recorded. On the day after each session, you receive a link to the recording plus a Mileposts document that gives you the time mark of each lesson and demo—for speedy review.

The five video recordings are available to you for one month after Session 5 of the workshop.
