Choose Between Two Options
- $34 for a 75-minute mother-daughter jewellery-making workshop for a parent and child (a $69 value)
- $34 for a 75-minute holiday-craft workshop for a parent and child or two children (children must be accompanied by an adult) (a $69 value).
During mother-daughter workshops, the instructors guide pairs in selecting faceted crystals, glass beads, and clasps to make jewellery that they eventually tote home in a silk, drawstring keepsake bag. During the holiday workshop, instructors show students how to make two projects each. They can choose to make anything from snowflake decorations and Christmas charm bracelets to candle ornaments and angel bookmarks. The workshops are designed for children aged 6–10 accompanied by an adult.
Beadology founder Sabrina Smith—who has made guest appearances on The Life Network, Breakfast Television, and _TVO Kids_—believes that making jewellery can help children develop fine motor skills and express their creativity. She hosts kids’ parties during which children get to both learn and create, as well as parent-child workshops that help bridge the age gap better than a picture book illustrating the Cuban Missile Crisis. Sabrina realizes that beading can be therapeutic and enjoyable for adults, so she presides over events such as ladies’ nights, when beaders can sip wine as they chat and craft.
