Boca Loca Beads is Fountain Square's spot for jewelry-making classes. Topics include stringing beads, working with wire, silversmithing and making glass beads (a technique called lampworking). Classes range from $30 to $225 and take place primarily in the evenings.
Mass Ave Knit Shop offers a beginning knitting class, an adult knitting camp, and other varied knitting classes, such as Sockaholics Anonymous. There's even an afghan "block of the month" club.
Remember those old Gap commercials? At the Fountain Square Theatre, you can take swing-dancing lessons every other Friday evening.
