Bead It! Family Program

In this special family activity (for ages 8+ with adult), you’ll explore the world of beads. Start with a guided tour of the special exhibition, Life on a String: 35 Centuries of the Glass Bead. You’ll learn about the history of beads and the ways they have been used by different cultures. Then, watch a glass beadmaking demonstration and use beads to create a piece of art or jewelry.

Cost is $10 per participant and reservations are required. Please fill out and mail this registration form. For questions, contact 607.438.5112 or

Additional Bead It! Family Programs take place on September 21 (2–4 pm), and November 16 (9:30–11:30 am).
