Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouthfeel and clean finish of beads. Show off sophisticated taste with today's Groupon: for $15, you get any Intro to Beading workshop at Tatnuck Bead Company in Worcester (up to a $35 value).
Tatnuck Bead Company instructs bead lovers and handicrafters in the fine art of beading, teaching new bling-stringing skills and techniques. Experienced instructors work with newbies and master bedazzlers alike, offering tips, hints, and clever jewelling tricks to keep necklaces and bracelets looking professional. Aim both eyes at the schedule and select a class such as TBC-101 Intro to Beading. During this first-timers' session, students construct an uncomplicated pair of earrings, string a bracelet with beading wire, and learn how to attach a clasp, which keeps wristlaces safely away from greedy sidewalks. Beaders can also try the Intro to Wirework session—which covers the how-tos of designing a bracelet-and-earrings set as well as the fundamentals of wire wrapping—or miniaturize their crafting fun with the Intro to Seed Bead Stitches class, where students learn to make a simple cuff bracelet.
All class materials are included with today's deal, but customers who require additional crafting ammunition can browse through Tatnuck's bright store, which boasts thousands of beads and tools. Grouponers enjoy a 20 percent discount on merchandise the day of class.
