Morning Class 10:00 – 12:00
Afternoon Class 1:00 – 3:00

Our most popular project uses safety pins and beads paired to create custom jewelry pieces with unlimited color combination options. Bracelets can be made to accommodate any size wrist, and hidden stretchy cord within ensures the pieces fit snugly without falling off.

Learn about the variety of bead types. Discover interesting new ways to use beads in other crafts, such as crochet work, and weaving. The workshop will provide easy-to- master techniques for the beginner and techniques for serious artisans as well.

The Center will supply materials and instruction free with the requirement that workshop participant make two pieces one for themselves and one for the Center.   Jewelry made for the Center will be sold to provide funding for the workshop.
