The Bead Project
The Bead Project is a scholarship program designed for creatively inclined women (including ciswomen, transwomen, and femme-identified non-binary folks). Over the course of ten classes at the UrbanGlass studios, students learn the art of glass beadmaking, simple jewelry fabrication techniques, and the entrepreneurial skills to develop a business plan. The Bead Project offers students a transformative experience, new tools for self-expression, and the skills to turn glass beadmaking into a supplemental form of income, while becoming a part of a dynamic creative community.
