Classes & Events

From beginner to advanced, we offer classes in a variety of techniques to inspire and spark your creativity.

Registration

All classes must be paid for in full for a student to be registered. Registering early is recommended; classes are subject to cancellation due to low enrollment. Register by phone, mail, in person, or online. Classes are intended for students ages 13 and older, unless otherwise noted. Class fees do not include materials unless noted. If you are registering by phone, please provide an email address to receive the instructor's supply list.
Classes are for all skill levels, unless otherwise noted.

Cancellations

If you must cancel a class, kindly give 48 hour notice to receive a full credit for future classes or merchandise. Cancellations made 24-48 hours in advance will result in a half credit. Cancellations made the day of class will result in a forfeiture of fees. If we must cancel a class, you will be notified as soon as possible, and a store credit or refund will be given.

Frequent Student Program

Register for and attend any eight classes, and you will receive the next one free, up to $65! All records will be kept on file at A Place To Bead.

Private Parties

To reserve our classroom for your birthday party, special occasion, or a ladies' night out, please book your date 4-6 weeks ahead for optimal availability.  Please call or email us for information regarding pricing and options.
