Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a decapitated sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today’s Groupon to Fat Cat Beads. Choose from the following options:

  • For $19, you get a two-hour beading class for two (up to a $40 value).
  • For $35, you get a two-hour beading class for four (up to an $80 value).
  • For $95, you get a two-hour beading party for up to 10, including supplies for the party’s project and $20 worth of beads (a $220 total value).

The bead barons at Fat Cat Beads teach students how to craft beaded jewelry during two-hour classes held on weekends and weekday evenings. Beginners classes lay out the basics, and sessions on the russian spiral or viking knit teach pupils more complicated designs. Cuff-style bracelet classes illustrate how to suspend beads in loops of leather cord, a skill that, once mastered, will give students a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost. Students should check the necessary supplies for each class, as some require pupils to bring or purchase beads.

Two-hour beading parties let groups of up to 10 gather for personalized instruction in one of three subjects: introductory stringing, bead weaving, or wirework. All necessary supplies for the soiree are included in today’s deal, and each partygoer takes home his or her own handiwork. Groupon holders also get $20 worth of store credit to spend on materials, such as Czech fire-polished beads, artisan crystals, bracelet kits to help adorn wrists ($12.50), or custom-made earring trees ($20), which can hold 35 pairs of earrings or tiny doll scissors.

Robin was wonderful! Thanks for such a fun class.

Took the class on June 26th. Loved it. Deb did a great job, and was so patient with us. I would definitely recommend anyone taking a class again. I just wish it were not on the far East side as we live southwest Wisconsin. Will not stop me from checking out classes again though.
