An ongoing core value at Dava Bead & Trade has been to offer workshops on diverse beading and metalsmithing techniques. While indeed we never cease to love making our own jewelry,  there is great pleasure had in teaching others how to design and create from a collection of raw materials.  Please peruse our seasonal offerings and call or visit the shop with your questions and interests. We offer classes that are suitable for both beginning and more experienced students, and welcome young people ages 12 and over to participate. If our current schedule does not meet your needs, please inquire about private or small group tutorials. Tutorials are a very effective way to learn a new skill in an intimate and focused environment. 

Please call or come in ahead of time to register for class, and view our cancellation policy below.

*All metalsmithing requires closed-toed shoes and hair to be tied back for safety.
