Free Jewelry-Making Classes at Gardner Village

“Learn something new.”--A common New Year’s resolution. I know it’s one of mine. Whether you’ve resolved to increase your list of can-dos or simply want to come inside for some warm fun on these chilly winter days, we invite you out to Gardner Village this month, where classes are in full swing. 

I had the pleasure of visiting The Bead Farm this month, where I met two of the kind and sweet shop owners/instructors, Callie and Colleen, and learned to make a pretty bubble necklace. First, I got to pick my beads. This was my favorite part. There were so many beautiful options to choose from!

Next, it was time to position my beads in the order I wanted and get to stringing them. Yay! 

Yes, with sweet Callie was by my side, offering me help as I needed it and explaining what the different jewelry-making supplies and tools were all about, I was able to make a trendy bubble necklace for my daughter in no time. I’m so thrilled to think I made this myself! 

At The Bead Farm, you have two choices when it comes to class time. You can either sit down and create whatever design you’d like (what I did with my necklace), which is known as Table Time, or you can come for a structured class once a week (more details on each below). Either way, you leave with a finished piece of jewelry and new understanding of the jewelry-making process. 

So pick up the phone and give The Bead Farm a call today 801.938.1995. Their shop is so bright and colorful; it will add an instant burst of sunshine to these gray winter days. Plus, you’ll leave with both your own handmade jewelry and some new skills to be proud of.

That’s right, Table Time costs you nothing more than the materials used to create your project. What a deal!
