After careful consideration, the Palmetto Bronze Board has decided to wait until 2022 to have another Lowcountry Handbell Workshop. Please stay tuned for more information, date and venue. We love having folks come to our workshop with enthusiasm and excitement to learn more about the art of Handbells.
We were concerned for you, our registrants, because we didn't know even if you would be back up and running your groups in time to order and prepare the music. Also, we know that the corona virus situation may have caused many of you financial hardships that would prevent you from ordering new music or even prevent many from registering.
There is a lot of work and planning that goes into the Lowcountry Handbell Workshop. Although we love planning this event, at this time, we are not sure that a venue would be available. We also would need to be assured of sufficient attendance to make the workshop a viable venture.
Please stay tuned and look for information for LWH 2022! We will be back in the Leveled Workshop format.
We will miss seeing you in March but, LWH will be back!!
Online Registration Form
All music should be purchased and learned ahead of the workshop. These selections can be ordered from Jeffers Handbell Supply or any other music distributor. No photo copies.
Sorry for any inconvenience that our change of venue may have caused you with hotel reservation. See the list of Mount Pleasant Hotels below
An opportunity to polish our pieces under a nationally known clinician's direction. We will also learn many valuable ideas about improving our ringing skills.
We will publish our leveled class selections for 2022 before registration begins.
Because of the current corona virus pandemic, we will not have a 2021 Workshop. In 2022, we will go back to the leveled workshop format. Music will be chosen in Level 1+ - 2+ (Tins), Level 3-4 (Coppers) and Massed Ringing Level 2-3. Four pieces total for each group.
