Drop In Weekly General Beading Classes

Every week we offer group classes in beading taught by our long time jewelry making teacher Nancy Schwartz. No prior beading experience is necessary and classes are attended on a drop in basis (no appointment needed). Students get to choose their own individual beading project for that day.

Here are just some of the techniques in jewelry making that you can learn while taking a class:

  • wire wrapping
  • hand knotting
  • basic stringing and finishing
  • seed bead weaving

You can also bring in a sample or image of a project you want to work on

Class Schedule:

  • Tuesday 10am - 12pm
  • Tuesday 1pm - 3pm
  • Wednesday 1pm - 3pm

Cost: $25
