Findings Crash Course
Interested in making your own jewelry and the ability to repair and re-work your own? Our Findings Crash Course is the perfect place to get started. In a small and relaxed group setting, our lauded technique class will impart the skills you need to string jewelry on two popular materials, knot between beads for security and aesthetic purposes and basic wire-wrapping techniques. We'll talk about approaches to design and materials and get comfortable using our hands in working with small materials and tools. From the skills you learn in class, you will come away with the know-how you need to get started on designing and repairing your own: tackle that bag of broken jewelry, re-create that overpriced piece from a magazine or pull design ideas straight from your imagination. Let us help you get started!
All you need to bring is yourself and any glasses that you may need when working with small materials - we provide everything else!

Class is for ages 12 and older, as sustained attention and patience is needed for this two hours class, in addition to fine motor skills. If you are looking to sign up with a pre-teen, it's not a bad idea to call first to make sure you sign up for a class on a week that isn't too full.
We recommend that you arrive 10 or 15 minutes early* and bring along any glasses or visual aids that you may need in order to work with the small materials used in class.
*So as to not compromise your or your classmates learning experience, if you are 15 or more minutes late, you will need to reschedule (at no charge).
