Ceramic Bead Making

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

diy ceramic bead making and the tools on display for this class.

This is a one of a kind DIY ceramic bead jewelry class! You will learn to make a variety of beads; use them as part of your wardrobe or interchange the beads with your existing jewelry. There will be an upcoming class after this one where you will get the opportunity to braid your handmade beads into a hemp bracelet!

During this class, you will be given all the material, tools and instruction needed to create a wide range of decorative beads. Using up to 1 pound of clay form as many beads as you would like! After you have formed your variety of beads give them color with a wide range of underglazes or leave them all-natural.  Finally, once the beads have been fired they will be dipped into a clear glaze to give it a smooth sheen.

We know you will have a blast making your own DIY ceramic bead jewelry!



Q: What age is this class for?
A: All ages are welcome! Typically we see adults attend classes at Catalyst Space, however, we can accommodate any age for this particular class.

Q: Is it messy?
A: Minimally, while clay can be a bit dusty it will easily rinse off clothes and skin.

Q: Can I pay at the door?
A: Due to the popularity of our classes we can only accommodate tickets purchased up to 12 hours prior to a class.  This allows us enough time to set up
