Come along to Silverpetal Studio and make beautiful jewellery on our Beginner’s Beading classes. This is a short 4 week course. Aimed at beginner’s level, this is a great hobby to start to relax and have fun, learning a fascinating new skill. This is also a good class if you have already had a go at beading and you’ve struggled to master the basic beading techniques and would like some tuition.
When can I attend the Beginner’s Beading classes?
These classes are available during normal term times. They have flexible start dates. If you book a place today you can start next week* or within the following 3 weeks from booking.
(*Christmas, Easter and Summer break dependant.)
What will we do on the Beginner’s Beading class?
During these classes you will make a series of jewellery projects, each project having been designed to explore a number of basic techniques within this fun and expansive subject. Several designs will be looked at during the classes and completed ready for you to take home.
Beading involves lots of different techniques and you will look at most of the basics including; using tiger-tail & crimps, making wrapped loops, working with wire, adding findings, using colours and more.
What is included?
All tools and equipment are included. The projects are made with a standard project kit supplied each week. This is a selection of beads and a mixture of silver / gold plated findings. These are extra at £3, payable in cash each week.
At the studio we have a large selection of semi-precious and glass beads, silver wires and findings available from the shop. Individuals are welcome to choose from this premium selection and these materials are extra and payable on the day. You are also welcome to bring along your own beads if you have any you wish to use for some of the projects.
Tea, coffee and other hot drinks are available at the studio.
So what are you waiting for?
Beads are available in a vast and dazzling array of wonderful shapes, sizes and colours. Using beads is a lovely way to explore your creative potential and make your own stunning jewellery to wear. It is also a subject which is very accessible, needing only a very basic tool kit, you will be able to enjoy this subject after the course at home. These classes will help you by giving a starting point within the subject by learning some of the basics.
