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.

Micro Macramé Bezel $30 Class + Cost of Materials

Sunday, March 18th – 2:00pm-5:00pm

Micro macramé is a great way to capture that cabochon, sea glass, flat stones, coins or shell you found. It is a fun, and not–so-common way of creating a bezel for your piece. This technique gives your piece a more organic and earthy appearance. This is an intermediate beginner class and some macramé experience is helpful. You will learn the knots used to form the bezel, and how to finish it into a necklace.

Note: The class being taught is not an appropriate technique for a free form tumbled stone or rock. The specimen must have a more even edge all the way around. If a tumbled or free form stone is brought to class, you will be required to purchase a different piece to bezel.
