Jewelry and beading shows with classes

Jewelry and beading classes are offered all throughout the extravaganza in early February in Tucson. Here is some general information on Tucson: Show guide: an overview

Besides Tucson, there are many beading shows throughout the rest of the year that also offer classes. Why should you take a class this year? Why not just learn everything online (preferably for free)? Well, there are actually lots of good reasons to go the hands-on route, and here are just a few of my best tips: you won't waste as much in materials, you'll learn the techniques properly and efficiently, you'll have a chance to have your technique corrected if need be, and you'll figure out which tools and materials you must have as opposed to just want to have!

Thank you so very much for posting this! I have been looking around my area for classes in bead work but I can never seem to find anything. This is so helpful!

Thanks for this post. I'll pass these beading classes on to everyone I know. I enjoy reading your blog very much
Thanks so much for posting this! I've taught in Tucson before and it was a blast, but finding all the classes all at once, without searching everywhere on the web, that's not so fun - so thanks for putting things in one spot and making it easier to find and sort through!

I can't wait to see all the goodies down in Tucson this year!!

I have keen interest in beads and its jewelry. You can not learn everything online; I am fully agreed with this.

I have attended one workshop last year and believe me, it is life time experience. I am a jewelry designer and believe me, such workshops are best to learn.
great round up! very helpful!
