What You'll Get
With today's side deal, $10 gets you $25 toward a two-hour bead class or repairs plus 15% off all materials at Bead Works, Inc. in historic Franklin Village. The value of this Groupon may be applied toward more expensive classes, and customers pay the difference. This Groupon does not include materials for classes or other offers, but you may use it toward a private lesson.
Explore the endless possibilities of handmade jewelry during an upcoming class at Bead Works. Each two-hour, hands-on session focuses on techniques ranging from bead stringing to earrings and wire wrapping. Supplies and material expenses start as low as around $5 for basic bead projects or $30 for most wire wrapping projects. And though pricing varies greatly depending on the quality of stones, beads, et cetera, the instructors often encourage visitors to go beyond simply learning the techniques and make something they'll truly love to wear. If you choose to get your beaded jewelery repaired, use your Groupon toward bead stringing, wire wrapping, pearl knotting, et cetera (cannot be used toward materials or soddering).
Classes are scheduled throughout the week. Select one that interests you and bring a friend, because nothing says togetherness like tying knots, unless you're talking about getting married in a two-person horse costume. Call at least 24 hours in advance to schedule your class.
