Here are the programs I am currently offering for teaching dates in 2005/2006. I will be adding new selections as I develop them, and retiring some older workshops.

Attn. Guild Program Chairs: If you would like to have Bethany visit your guild, please complete the online contact form. Thanks!

Note that some classes are "iron-intensive" and require an iron for every 2-4 students for efficient use of class time. These classes should not be selected if there are power limitations at the workshop site. For more information, see the Full View page with each design.
