What to Expect from Insiders:
Blue Bottle Insiders is like a buffet, and you can “eat” as much (or as little) as you like. You’ll meet pros and newbies. Fine artists and dabblers. Jewelry makers and sculptors. Sellers and hobbyists. We all share the desire to learn, grow, and become better at what we do. Come as you are, but bring a willing creative spirit!
F. A. Q.
No, we use a customized community software called Circle. There are no algorithms or issues with privacy. You can enjoy Insiders without the frustrations of social media.
All old posts and articles are currently accessible on the Insiders platform. However, that may change as the amount of content is becoming enormous and for clarity, we may start archiving some content.
Insiders is not a course delivery platform. There are no formal tutorials. Instead, Insiders is a “place” where connection to others provides the support you need to learn by doing.
Yes. You have complete control over your membership and can control it at any time in your “account” on The Blue Bottle Tree.
Insiders isn’t a course platform. Access to the live meetings, expertise, and forum ends when your membership expires.
We have members at all stages of their creative journey. The wide range of Insider experience means you will fit in no matter what stage you’re in.
There are no time requirements. Participate as much or as little as you’d like. Some people engage several hours each week. Others visit weekly. The more you put in, the more you get out of Insiders.
You’ll need a computer, tablet, or phone and access to the internet. For live meetings, you’ll enjoy your participation more if you have a webcam (or if there’s a camera on your device). Earbuds or headphones make it easier to hear. A desktop is nice, too, so you can see several people on the screen at a time. It feels more inclusive that way.
Yes! We have jewelry makers, contemporary earring makers, yes. But we also have, sculptors, mixed media artists, polymer “painters”, home decor makers, and more. We all connect over the shared process of using polymer clay to create our heart’s desire.
