The Bead Garden offers a workshop environment during regular working hours.  This means that use of our tools and finishing expertise is absolutely free of charge if you want to sit and string basic pieces, as long as you are using materials purchased at The Bead Garden. (If you use non-Bead Garden materials, a small $5 fee per jewelry item will be applied.)  For more advanced techniques we suggest taking a class. We ask for our classes, only Bead Garden materials be used (there are always special exceptions).  Thanks for helping us keep our prices reasonable!

(Please note: The minimum age requirement for most classes is 16, but please call us if you think your child is ready. Please contact us if you have a group and would like to arrange a private class or if you are interested in private one-on-one lessons.)
