Jewellery-Making Classes at The Beaderie – Winter 2017

Please find below a summary of the latest series of classes for Winter 2017, which are available at The Beaderie.

All classes take place at our shop at 14 Magdalene Street, Cambridge CB3 0AF, and are designed to be single sessions, running to completion in one evening.

 

To book a place please either visit the shop or call us on 01223 328410 during shop-opening hours so we can check availability. If booking by phone, we will then be able to process a card payment over the phone to confirm your place.

Places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis, and must be paid for in-full at the time of booking. The class fee includes all materials, instructions, and use of the relevant tools.

A full refund is guaranteed if we receive 7 days notice of a cancellation.

 

Please note: We require a minimum age of 12 years to participate in classes at The Beaderie, to enable competent use of tools.

We recognise that our classes are very popular and, as each session has a maximum of only 4 people, in the interests of fairness we can only accept a maximum of 2 class themes per person per series. Group bookings are acceptable where either availability allows, or they can be accommodated within the schedule as an additional class. Thank you for your understanding.

If you are only able to participate in classes during daytimes, please contact us directly with your themes of interest and we will endeavour to schedule a special class on a Monday morning to accommodate you and others in a similar position.

We always hold reserve lists of names for priority contact for every class theme. This is in case we can schedule additional classes into our diary or if cancellations occur so, please, always register your interest with us if you are keen to take part.
