All the books mentioned by Fran are wonderful. If you can, I would suggest
renting or borrowing a beginners video or dvd prior to your class. I did
this and it helped a lot. If you can't look through the books and read about
making a basic bead.
I can rent videos at my library about beadmaking, but I live in the Seattle
area and we have a HUGE county library system.
