The experienced instructors at Brighton Beads and More teach burgeoning jewelers to create custom art in a variety of classes. Use loom-less weaving techniques to create beaded patterns during a Needle and Thread class, or shape your pirate uncle’s leftover gold doubloons into chains, findings, and rings in Simple Soldering sessions. The fused-glass mirror-making class teaches pupils to cut and layer glass into 12”x12” mirrors in a session that lasts approximately three hours. Instructors guide patrons through the process of combining included materials into a colorful masterpiece, which emerges from the fiery kiln flaunting the artist’s proud reflection. The calendar’s many offerings allow guests to work around brimming schedules or coordinate alibis for ice-cream-truck hold-ups.
