Orion Beaded Beads

Recurring event see all

August 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Please note that the August 14th session for the Orion Beaded Bead is now full, however we added a second session on August 19.

“Orion Beaded Beads”

We are so addicted to beaded beads here at the shop that when our friends at Matubo offered this fun pattern for their “Nib-Bit” beads, we couldn’t wait to try it! These work up quick and easy, plus you have the opportunity make a variety of types of projects and integrate unique beads, such as stones, into the finished strung piece.

Pattern provided by Matubo. We will distribute copies of the instructions on the day of class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Right angle weave, netting, stringing

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.

Cost Options

Please note that these prices do not include materials. Material costs vary.

$15 Single class price

$10 Multi-class package price
Multi-class packages are $80 for 8 classes. Packages are good for a 6-month period, starting from the date of first use. Packages can be used on most of the classes offered, however specialty and guest instructor classes regularly priced higher than $15 do not qualify.

$0 Your first class is free!
This class qualifies for our promotion, so if this is your first time joining us in the beading room, be sure to let us know when you register and we’ll waive the fee.

Cancellation Policy:  Cancellations must be submitted a minimum of 2 business days prior to the event in order to receive credit that can be used towards another class or merchandise. This policy also applies to registrants using a pre-paid multi-class package to avoid having the class deducted from your total. (Please note that due to the limited staffing we have at this time, we will not be able to do reminder calls before all classes, so be sure to put your dates on your calendar.)
