About The Bead Project @ UrbanGlass
The Bead Project is a scholarship program designed for creatively inclined, economically disadvantaged women. Over the course of ten classes at the UrbanGlass studios, students learn the art of glass beadmaking and simple jewelry fabrication techniques. Upon completion of coursework at UrbanGlass, students go on to local free business development classes to cultivate the entrepreneurial skills necessary to market and sell their work. After successful fulfillment of The Bead Project curriculum, students receive a kit containing the necessary tools and equipment for continuing to produce their work. Ongoing advocacy is provided to graduates by The Bead Project and UrbanGlass. Click here to download and fill out the application.
