Students create a beaded, spherical cozy to embellish ornaments using seed beads and a variety of patterning methods during three-hour ornament-dressing classes. Or visitors can create a 3-D, 7-inch-tall beaded Christmas tree using a series of knots, techniques, and letters to Santa Claus. Made entirely of large, colorful plastic beads, hanging Noel banners teach pupils to creatively spell out messages, well wishes, and critical reviews of carolers’ performances.
