Class Information
Class browsing for the 2015 Bead&Button Show is now open! View the full list of classes, register for the Show, and start planning out your trip! We can't wait to see you.

The Bead&Button Show offers a variety of classes and workshops you can take while attending the show. Various skill levels, age groups, and techniques are available. 

Workshops are scheduled with longer hours than our general classes to give teachers more time to cover a variety of techniques or to focus on an advanced or complex technique. Workshops typically have fewer students in each session than our regular classes. This environment allows teachers to spend more time with each student.

The class Registration Form PDF is attached for your convenience.

Please be sure to review our full Show Schedule and Cancellation Policy.


The 2015 Bead&Button Show is proud to be hosting Master Classes in the following techniques. Click on the links to learn more about them.

We are again hosting a large number of glass and lampworking classes.  Learn more about these sessions that meet the needs of beginner-to-advanced students.

Fundamentals in Techniques sessions, and over 100 intensive workshops for beginner to advanced jewelry makers, are again being offered. These in-depth sessions run from one to four days.

Always a great success, we offer many unique three-hour evening sessions. Here’s your chance to put jewelry first and sleep last!

We are continuing the tradition at the Show with Preludes being our introductory classes to the Show week. In 2014, these classes start on Friday May 30, 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Encore and Camp classes are back for 2015. 

Our Camp counselors are Liisa Turunen (Beading) and Kim St. Jean (Metals).
