Beading Demos Saturdays

Bead Blast - every Saturday (1:00 - 3:00 pm) --> See projects HERE

Every Saturday we’ll have a new program, called Bead Blast from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Come and learn some new techniques to use with beads, wire, leather and metal. Discover what you can do with the tools you already own, such as embossing folders, hammers, pliers, etc. Then watch what you can do with some tools you’ve never used before. We will get your creative juices flowing! {No registration required}
