OBS hosted events, workshops and field trips happen almost every month of the year. In addition to helping out at
local bead shows, we organize shopping trips and project trips to local bead stores, bring in visiting instructors as well
as hosting our own beading workshops.

The OBS Bead Retreats focus on casual fun, friendship

attacks. You may bring your
own drink cup if you wish.
There will be patterns shared with you and a project
needs sheet distributed but feel free to bring your own

weekend is all about friendship, relaxation and beading.
It's bead all you want, at your own pace. There are no
theft problems at the camp. You can leave your projects
and beads set up when you leave the room for bed.

participate if you don't feel like it. If you need help, we
have several qualified bead instructors to help you. Just
