Beaded jewellery makes wonderful and very personal gifts for friends and family. This course will teach you the basics of beading and you will leave with a beautiful creation of your own.

It doesn't matter if you are super creative or not, you will be able to learn how to make yourself, friends, or family, beautiful pieces to wear. The range of designs, styles and colours is huge and you will have great fun creating something unique and fabulous. Your designs can be funky, or more classic, they can be multi-coloured, more subtle, or outrageous. All materials including beads are provided. Your tutor will provide notes and diagrams to take home.

There will be magazines available to get ideas of designs. We encourage you to take photos of any of the designs as inspiration for future projects.

You will learn how to open and close jump rings so they keep their shape, learn how to make a loop on an eye pin and a headpin, learn how to flatten crimps, learn how to make a wrapped loop, work with tigers talk and how to crochet with wire.

Kitsets will be provided to make two pairs of earrings or a necklace or a bracelet. We will provide mats and tools for students to share, or you can bring your own if you plan to continue with this craft.

The course fee includes $20 materials.

Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our community.
