Ongoing Classes

Here at Aberdeen Bead Company we strive to offer a variety of options for classes.  We have sessions that focus on everything from basic jewelry making techniques to more intensive sessions to boost your beading creativity, kid’s art & beading classes, as well as painting & mixed media classes.  Each month we develop a class calendar that will help you stay “on-trend” with your jewelry wardrobe & offer fun activities for all ages.   Call ahead to let us know you plan on coming, since schedule changes sometimes occur & we want to offer the best opportunities to you, our customer.
