“…more than beads and classes”
Findings began "officially" in November 1994. The initial idea was to have a gathering place for people wishing to find their own creative inner voice and to meet people of like mind. (Hence the name Findings for Artists & Seekers). The actual vision was that artists would come in and sit around a table and talk and create and share experiences with each other- and those in need of some creative outlet.
Following an inner voice, the idea of having beads & string be the draw for these creative people opened up a whole new world. It has been quite an adventure. Teachers and students have joined us. We now have classes almost every day of the week. We explore beads, methods, color, ideas, beads, experiences, jewelry and beads.
As well as stocking a full selection of beads and beading supplies, we offer over fifty classes throughout the year, and are glad to set up custom classes as space and time permit.
To view our current class calendar or a full listing of classes, please see the Class Calendar page. Contact us if a class you want isn't currently scheduled and you would like to see it scheduled again.
We offer more than sixty classes rotated throughout the year. The class schedules here are updated monthly, and usually only include the coming months' classes. We're also happy to set up special classes for you and your friends. Contact us for details about this.
Registering for Classes
To register, stop by the store, or call us at 734-929-9751, or e-mail us. Full payment for the class is due at registration - phone registration is accepted with Visa or Mastercard. Your place in class is guaranteed with your payment.
Class sizes are limited, depending on the class, to anywhere between a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 15 students. Classes with less than 4 students will be cancelled. We will maintain a wait list for classes that exceed maximum capacity.
For full credit or refund, we must receive notice of cancellation at least 48 hours before the class starts. No credit or refund will be given on shorter notice. This 48-hour period allows us to contact any people on the wait list who could attend the class. Additionally, instructors are paid based on the names listed for the class 48 hours prior to the class.
Perfume: Please refrain from wearing perfume to class. The classroom is closed and odors tend to be overpowering. Many class participants and instructors suffer from allergies and asthma.
Cell Phone: Please turn off cell phones during class. If you need to have it on, please switch to vibrate and leave the classroom when responding.
