Beading Classes

Enjoy personal, knowledgeable and fun instruction in our dedicated classroom.

Classes are kept small and taught by our patient and experienced instructors.

Payment is due at time of class. See below for class descriptions and times.

Please note: we try to provide "Class Bead Kits" to keep bead selection easy, when applicable. However, we are not always able to duplicate the exact colors shown in the pictures below. Ask staff for material requirements if you would like to use your own beads with the projects.
