Add some sparkle to your Christmas tree! These gorgeous decorations are made with tiger tail wire and faceted fire-polished glass beads for festive sparkly brilliance. This class will teach you the skills you need to make a lovely beaded wire snowflake in your choice of colours!
Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately 1½ hours. Enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere learning a new skill, chatting to like-minded people and enjoying a cup of tea (or coffee, of course!). All materials and refreshments are included in the price.
Who is the class for?
This workshop is aimed at complete beginners, who would like to try their hand at beading, and make a fabulous sparkly decoration, but anyone over the age of 16 is welcome, regardless of experience.
It can be quite fiddly, so a good level of manual dexterity is required.
Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will need and the basic technique you will learn. You’ll be able to choose the wire and beads you would like to use for your final piece, and Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating your snowflake.
The price includes everything you need: all materials and use of any necessary tools, full instruction from Wendy, and tea and coffee. You will get to take home the snowflake(s) you've made. Beginners are likely only to have time to make one snowflake on the class, but if you finish quickly you'll be quite welcome to make another during the class, at no extra charge. You'll even be given written instructions to remind you of what you learned during the class, so you can make more at home!
What are the design options?
When you arrive at your class, you will be given the choice of several colours of beads. The basic design of the snowflake will remain the same, but you'll be able to use the beads in whatever order you wish, so your snowflake can be quite unique. Wendy will show you all the techniques you need, to ensure that you make a snowflake to be proud of!
How long will the class last?
The class will last approximately one and a half hours. It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run depending on group sizes.
Where is the class held?
Classes are held in The Little Craftery in Field Row, Worthing, which is designed to be a functional, comfortable workspace for up to 7 participants. The shop will be closed to the public during your class, so you don’t need to worry about interruptions. If you have any special access requirements, please contact Wendy at The Little Craftery before you book to discuss, and to find out if access is available for you.
Do we need to book?
Yes, please do book in advance, as there are a limited number of places on each class (a maximum of 5 people per open class), and we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed! We require full payment in advance in order to secure your booking. Online payments will be taken securely by either Square or Paypal (don’t worry, you don’t have to have a Paypal account!). If you’d rather not book online, you can book in person at The Little Craftery.
Why are there no dates available?
You haven't set one yet! Instead of us trying to guess when you might want your class, it's easier if you tell us.
If you want an open class with other people, you can choose your own date by starting the booking process for a private class for 1 person (by clicking the '1 Person' button above). Just don't pay the additional 50% supplement charge, and we'll open that date up for others to book onto. Voila! A date you can do.
Do I need to bring anything?
All your materials and refreshments are supplied.
It is quite fine work, so if you use reading glasses or similar it may be useful to bring those with you.
Can I cancel or reschedule my booking?
If you are unable to attend your class, please let us know as soon as possible. Cancellations made up to 7 whole days before the class will receive a full refund. Cancellations made within 7 days, or failure to show up for your class will not be eligible for a refund.
In any circumstance where a class is cancelled by The Little Craftery, we will attempt to contact you in advance as soon as possible to either reschedule or offer a full refund, as you prefer.
