My parents live in Holland (they're not Dutch, but they live there - long story)

I'm going to visit them and I was trying to figure out if there were any cool stores to teach jewelry making?

Anyone have any suggestions for stores in Amsterdam?

And of course I don't speak Dutch, so the lessons would need to be in English...

I don't speak Dutch either, I'm only here for a few months (Erasmus student). But I did some googling and found two places that offer workshops, the sites are in dutch but I used http://babelfish.altavista.com/ to translate them.

You could email them and ask, wether the teachers would mind holding the workshop in English?

A great resource!  I'm contacting them tomorrow.  When I was in NZ I spoke with a shop about some of my techniques (fusing, PMC, resin).  I think people would really take to it!

Coppenhagen is the largest bead store in Amsterdam, but I shop on-line here:

http://www.sayila.nl and they do organize workshops.
