bead classes

WE OFFER  CLASSES IN THE ARTWORK OF BEADING. THE INSTRUCTORS AT KNOT JUST BEADS  HAVE A COMBINED TEACHING EXPERIENCE OF OVER 40 YEARS. WE ARE DEDICATED  TO THE ART OF BEADWORK AS WELL AS THE KNOWLEDGE OF TECHNIQUES USED. OUR  INSTRUCTORS WILL USE THEIR EXPERTISE TO LEAD YOU THROUGH AN EXPLORATION  OF BEADWORK THAT IS UNPARALLELED. YOU WILL LEAVE CLASS NOT ONLY WITH THE  UNDERSTANDING OF HOW A TECHNIQUE PERTAINS TO THE PROJECT AT HAND, BUT  YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO TAKE THAT TECHNIQUE AND CREATE YOUR OWN  WONDERFUL BEADED OBJECTS OF ART


Need  a place to just get away for the day or a few hours and bead. Try our  Free Open Bead. Every  Friday we offer a Free open bead session. Relax  in the serenity of our classroom while you work on your projects. This  is a non instructional time for you to get any craft project done(or  started). Join others who share your enthusiasm for crafting. Bring a  lunch or order out. Staff is available to help with basic questions.  Come and join the girls for a fun afternoon.
