Upcoming Workshops

Intuitive Beading


Strengthen your creative confidence and demystify the challenge of intuitive beading! The outcome of the three part workshop will be a small beaded piece that you can turn into a brooch or put in a frame.

"What is intuitive beading?" you ask. It is working without a pattern sometimes even without a plan. It is a spontaneous approach to beading - one lets one's instinct guide them. Some describe it as "working from your heart rather than from your head". We have some "tricks" we think will help you shed some of the constraints you may feel.

*fee includes most supplies although you may want to supplement from your stash; a special bead, a sentimental piece of jewellery, a unique button, cabochon or shell.

Tuesday March 6th, 13th and 20th - 1:30 to 3:30pm


Tuesday March 6th, 13th and 20th - 6 to 8pm
