Workshops Policy


There are books, there websites, there is YouTube, but sometimes, the best way to learn is to take a workshop.

Nothing beats hands-on learning in a friendly supportive environment.

From basic bead stringing workshops to metal smithing workshops, we have a variety of workshops for all tastes and all levels of experience!

If you would like to take a workshop, see the details of the workshops we’re offering, call us or book online to reserve your place!  

Supplies etc.
Most of our workshops require you to bring or purchase additional materials.
You can purchase them ahead of time, or come early to the workshop to get them before the workshop starts.
