Do you enjoy looking at and wearing beaded jewelry? Have you ever thought,"I bet I could make that!" or "That jewelry set would be perfect if only it was the right color..." If this describes you then this is the ideal summer class! In Beginning Beading you will not only learn about the history and uses of different beads, tools and patterns; you will also have the "hands on" opportunity to build your own beautiful necklace, bracelet and earring sets. One of the greatest aspects of this class is that it allows you to be fully immersed in the art of jewelry making without the commitment of buying any of the patterns or tools. We will also be offered a deeply discounted price on the materials needed for the class, and we bring several expert beaders to class to assist with instruction so the student to instructor ratio is low. Beginning Beading is a fantastic chance to learn about jewelry making and make your own original and beautiful creations.
