Little jewelry designers ages 4–10 are welcomed to an accessories adventure all about winding, looping and stringing together unique beaded creations just in time for the holidays. Owner of South End’s Bead + Fiber Larissa will guide participants through the basics of beading as kiddos create their choice of ornaments or bracelets made with a selection of wooden beads and wintery charms. Each student will leave with a unique piece of their own and even a thoughtful gift for someone special.
Note: This is a drop-off event timed to allow for Winter Festival shopping and SoWa exploration. However, grown-ups are welcomed to stay!
