Classes at A Touch of Class Studio!

112 N Main St, Waupaca, Wisconsin

Find a class you like – grab a couple friends and let’s get it scheduled!  There is a contact button by each class so just click that and request a couple times and we will make it happen for you.  Our class minimum is 2 but most classes can be up to 10 people.  The classes that involve soldering are best kept to 4 people so we don’t start flame throwing.  😉 

Check back frequently – options will be added as we are inspired.  And be SURE to let us know if you are interested in learning a jewelry design that you don’t see here.  

Coming soon…1 on 1 glass making.  Try your hand at making a lampwork glass bead or marble!

Stay tuned… 

Boho Beaded Leather Wrap Bracelet

Make your own super popular style leather and glass beaded bracelet. You can choose a single, double or create one like what I made for the photo – three stunning wraps of beautiful Japanese glass beads and soft leather. You can make one exactly like the photo or choose from several colors of beads and leather. You can’t make a mistake with this design – every combination looks amazing! The design is simple but does take a little time and patience. And – if you use reading glasses for close work, please bring them! I made mine in about 45 minutes but the class will run 2 hours to allow you plenty of time to complete your new bracelet. No previous jewelry making experience is necessary. Ages 12 and above please. 18 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.
