Each month workshops are offered to club members and visitors. Workshops are free but sometimes there is a small fee for kits that are offered for some projects. There are generally two or more projects being worked on plus cabbing and faceting gem stones are usually offered.

Always something to do

One of the workshops offered in June was a Cross Weave necklace taught by club member Karen.

Pictured are Cross Weave necklaces in various stages of completion. You work at your own pace and get lots and lots of help along the way.

Upcoming Workshops

This is a Chain Maille pattern. Kits will be made available and all you will need are two pliers, bent nose or chain nose and a beading mat.

This beautiful crystal and seed bead bracelet is perfect to wear at Christmas. Once you learn the pattern you can use any color combination to wear any time of the year! A list of supplies will be posted soon!
