Join us for a day of beading, relaxation, good food & laughter as we celebrate this season of love, joy and peace with our annual ornament workshop.
When: Choice of 2 Saturdays - October 3 (10-5) OR October 10 (10-5)
Where: Private home
We also offer a "workshop in a box." For those of you who can't attend one of our workshops and don't want to wait until these kits are available next summer, you can purchase the workshop in a box. Your care package will include the bead kit, printed instructions, snacks and the goody bag of handmade gifts. These boxes will be offered through mid-October and are limited in number.
In this all-inclusive workshop, we will provide:
- your beading kit (beads, needles, thread & glass ball ornament)
- lighting & work surface
- snacks, beverages & lunch
- as always for our special events, you'll receive a goody bag with items handcrafted by Melissa & Kelly just for you
- scissors & any beading tools you can't live without
Join us for the Bead Shop Hop!
We'll be setting up shop again at Beadology in Huntington Beach for the entire event. Shop our trunk show & check out all the wonderful beads, projects & workshops Beadology has to offer.
