The Bead Studio

The artists and affiliates at the nonprofit organization The Bead Studio get the creative gears turning in children's brains with bead-related classes and events that emphasize improving art education for the DC-area youth. The Bead Studio hosts seasonal festivals spotlighting a slew of artisan-bead vendors to raise money for their mission and benefit other philanthropic, bead-related foundations such as Beads of Courage and BeadforLife. More than a dozen types of workshops led by instructors with impressive portfolios also benefit these causes, covering kid-centric beading techniques and business-related tips for adults wishing to start their own bead shop or kids looking to barter with the local ice-cream man.

Customer Reviews

Renee is a wonderful woman who guarantees your experience is amazing. My daughter and I had a great day together and with other students. I wore the jewelry I made to church and work and got so many compliments. I recommend this class to anyone wanting to start or refresh their beading passion.

It was a wonderful experience. The number of people was great, the conversation was great and the entire set up was great. I was very new to beading so this was surely a test. Well, I passed the test and enjoyed the instructors as well as the wonderful women who attended the class. I hope to meet up with some of those same women in the future since we did bond and exchange information.
