Bead With Friends Fridays

Classroom space is available every Friday for an "open studio" session. Bring a project, your own lunch or snacks and enjoy the company of other beaders. There is no fee when you are using supplies you purchased at Studio Baboo. This is not a class but an opportunity to relax and have fun while you work on your bead projects away from the distractions of home and family. No need to sign up - come and go as your schedule permits. Each month we feature a special Make-It Take-It project on Fridays. May's project is a 2-strand memory wire bracelet accented with 2-holed pyramid beads. You purchase the supplies, we provide help to get you started and finished. You'll have so much fun; you'll want to make another one! This is not a structured class but is an informal session where we will help you choose your beads and start and finish your project.

Would You Like to Teach a Class?

We are looking for instructors to teach beading classes - weaving, stringing, embroidery, loom, etc. If you are expert in a particular technique or have a fabulous original project you would like to share, you may be the person we are looking for. You must be well-spoken, friendly, outgoing and enjoy teaching adults. Please email a brief resume/outline of your experience, references and photos of a few recent projects to No calls or walk-ins. If we are interested in an interview, someone will contact you within five days of receiving your proposal.
