Beading Workshops

Have you ever wanted to create your own unique, beautiful jewellery in a fun and social environment? Our beading classes are for you!

  • We run classes all year long, once per fortnight on the Saturday (two sittings, 11am and 2pm).
  • Please call to store on 07 3869 0880 to book in – spots are limited so bookings are essential. Please read our booking policy below.
  • Class cost is only $15 (please note! This very minimal class fee only covers the cost of the instructor, so all beads are to be purchased on the day. Many other classes out there are upward of $75 to $100 each, so we sincerely ask you to respect this request by not bringing in your own beads. Tools are provided for use in class).
  • More detailed info is provided below.

 

NEW BOOKING POLICY!!

Please read our new booking policy carefully.

1. We will send a text ONE WEEK prior to the class (on the Friday) asking you to confirm your intention to attend the class.

2. Please reply YES or NO to that text before the deadline of 12 noon the following Saturday. This allows 24 hours to reply to the text.

3. If we do not receive your confirmation, we will give your spot to the next person on the waiting list.

Unfortunately due to no-shows and last minute cancellations, this new policy was developed. We often have a waiting list of people who would like to come to the class but missed out on a spot. We hope you can understand the necessity of this policy.

Important Information:

We have listened to your feedback, and we have changed the format of our classes. Each class will teach a particular design of jewellery. Of course you can still improvise slightly and use whichever colours you like. We won’t be repeating too many of the classes, except the very basic classes such as ‘Stringing 101’ and ‘Earrings 101’. So if you like a design, book into the class as we probably won’t teach that exact design again!

For detailed information on booking and selecting your beads for class, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

General Info:

  • Classes run for an hour and a half.
  • We usually run two classes on the Saturday, the first starting at 11am and the second starting at 2pm.
  • Most classes are suitable for beginners, unless otherwise specified.
  • We encourage you to come 30 minutes to one hour early on the day to pick your beads. The class instructor will be there to help select the right beads for the class. We discourage coming in before the day of the class as the class instructor knows best which beads to use for the class, and she is not in store every day.
  • Classes are not designed for children, however some may be suitable. Please enquire with us about the specific class you would like your child to attend.
  • Children under 15 must be accompanied by a paying adult.

 

Booking:

    • Please call us on 07 3869 0880 to book. We cannot guarantee your place until we have spoken to you and put your name down on the list (in other words, liking the Facebook post or emailing will not secure your spot so please call!).
    • Classes are limited to six people, so please book early to ensure your place.

Booking Policy:

1. We will send a text ONE WEEK prior to the class (on the Friday) asking you to confirm your intention to attend the class.

2. Please reply YES or NO to that text before the deadline of 12 noon the following Saturday. This allows 24 hours to reply to the text.

3. If we do not receive your confirmation, we will give your spot to the next person on the waiting list.

Unfortunately due to no-shows and last minute cancellations, this new policy was developed. We often have a waiting list of people who would like to come to the class but missed out on a spot. We hope you can understand the necessity of this policy.

  • Last minute cancellations: Of course, we understand people get sick or things come up. Please let us know as soon as possible if something comes up last minute and you can not attend the class.
  • We reserve the right to cancel the class if less than four places are filled. In this case, you will either be transferred to a later class, or your money will be refunded in full (the choice is yours).

 

 

Tools and Materials:

  • All tools are provided for use in the class. However some items
    such as beading needles must be purchased or brought from home. The
    description of each class will specify.
  • Please do not bring your own beads to the class, all materials must
    be purchased on the day.

 

Selection of Beads:

  • Selection of beads should primarily take place prior to class.
    However, if you find you need something else feel free to select it
    whilst the workshop is running.
  • We encourage you to come 30 minutes to one hour early on the day to pick your beads. The class instructor will be there to help select the right beads for the class. We discourage coming in before the day of the class as the class instructor knows best which beads to use for the class, and she is not in store every day.
  • We will no longer be supplying a basics pack. We do sell almost all
    of the basic findings loose if you only want one of something (like
    a clasp for example).
  • Unless specified in the workshop outline, please do not
    bring your own beads from home. We will from time to time specify
    if you are encouraged to bring your own tools and sometimes some
    expensive items (like fireline thread).
  • Specific details on how to purchase:
    • If you are buying loose beads, please use the white trays to
      collect all the pink pricing tags.
    • If you are buying strands, please keep the pink tag from the top of
      the strand in your tray.
    • If you are purchasing bags of beads/findings, please keep the
      plastic bag in your tray.
    • If you are purchasing from a jar, please take the jar up to the
      counter at the end. More than likely other members from the
      workshop will have used some of the same item so you can leave it
      at the counter.

 

TIGERTAIL AND CRIMPS will always be supplied to use in class free of charge. Basic findings are permitted to be brought to class, but please keep in mind the class fee goes directly to the instructor so please do not take advantage of this by bringing in your own beads.
