Workshops 

Beading is a fun and creative way to relax and hang out with friends.  In fact, we highly recommend bringing a friend with you to class.  When you register for class you will get a materials list. You have the option of bringing your own beads or old jewelry to re-purpose, but you can always buy the materials the day of the class.
