About Classes & Refunds


Classroom Location

All classes are held at the Pioneer School House, the large yellow/gold building located at 437 E 3rd Avenue (near Third and Eagle Street downtown). 

The classroom for most workshops will be in the back of the building (at "park level").  Entrance to the classroom is on the northeast side of the building (go to the right side of the wooden stairs in the front of the building, follow the stairs down, door to the classroom will be on the left).  If you need a ramp or have a roller bag on wheels, take the sidewalk at the other end of the building, follow the path around the back, to the same classroom door).

Some times, the workshop will be located up the front steps on the right.  Signs will be posted to let you know!

Parking is available in the lot in front of the School House (along 3rd Avenue) or along the adjacent side street.  Please don't park in the four spaces at the west end of the lot (signs are posted as to where NOT to park).

Classroom Access Prior to Start of Class

The classroom will be open 30-minutes prior to the start of each class.  Classes will start at the time posted, so please try to arrive on time!

Project Supply List

A Supply List for the project will be emailed to you after you have registered:

  • Kits:  You will have the option to purchase a kit from the teacher, the price of which will be in addition to the class registration fee; it will be paid the day of the class. 
  • Required Tools: As noted on the Supply List, there may be a list of tools and related items that will be needed during the class.  Please bring these with you.
  • Optional Supplies:  These are items that may be of assistance to you in class based on personal preference, but are not required (i.e. magnification, task lighting, beading surface).
  • Items to be Shared:  These are items that will be used during the class that Beadventures will make available.  You do not need to bring these items.

We understand that some who have taken classes at Alaska Bead Company may have gotten used to having a bead store on-hand during class so you could easily get something you forgot or decided during class you wanted to go in a different direction.  Given our new venue, it will be important to pay increased attention to the Supply List to make certain you have all materials you will need on-hand for successful work on your project.

Trunk Shows

We're encouraging teachers to bring extra goodies with them for a Trunk Show.  We'll let you know ahead of time so you can come a bit early to see what you can't live without!

Class Size

Class size is limited to what we feel will give you the maximum learning experience, therefore some classes may fill quickly. Children or adults who are not enrolled in a class should not be in the classroom without prior agreement from Beadventures. 

A refrigerator is available should you want to store food or beverages.

Refund and Cancellation Policies

  • If Beadventures cancels a class, a full refund of your registration fee will be made.
  • Otherwise, registration fees are non-refundable.  If you are unable to attend, you can substitute someone to take your place.
