Summer classes are here!

We have added some new classes to the roster, and brought back some old favorites - expand your skill set, or learn something new!

Tuesday, August 6, 1PM: Beaded Beads

We have taught this beadweaving class before, and it is always a lot of fun - this is NOT the beaded bead you've seen in magazines, where you start with a wooden bead, and bead around it. This beaded bead is completely beadwoven from scratch, and while there are a huge number of different styles of beaded beads, only one will be taught per class, although Sonya will demonstrate and explain how changing your bead size and shape in the pattern will give the bead a whole new look!

All 3 of these beaded beads are the same pattern - simply changing your bead size or shape can dramatically change the overall look of the bead. These beads can easily be incorporated into various beading projects - I can already envision these earrings done in red and green - what cute Holiday earrings!

Class fee: $40 plus supplies ($10 discount on class fee if all supplies are purchased at YaYa Beads). $15 non-refundable deposit required for registration.

Sunday, August 18, 1PM: Woven Wire Bangle

This is a new pattern for us!

 woven wire bangle

Students will learn to braid/weave heavy gauge wire into this fun bangle. More complicated wrapping projects using this simple weave will also be demonstrated

Class fee $45 plus supplies; $15 non-refundable deposit required for registration.

We are experimenting with offering classes on different days; we'd love to hear from interested students about which days of the week are best for classes! We'd also love to hear what techniques you'd like to learn!

Stop by the shop to see our samples in person, or to learn more about these classes.

We hope to see you soon!
