Tuition: $25 Materials: $9

Students will learn how to use beaded wire to wrap serving spoons to make a unique server for yourself or to give as a gift. They are fun to make and perfect to pop into a bowl of fruit salad or a casserole, adding a bit of color and whimsy. It’s the perfect spoon to take to a potluck since no one will confuse it with their own, and you’re not likely to leave it behind. What could be a better gift for a wedding shower, holiday gift, or to show appreciation to a wonderful hostess?
