The Group

This group runs as a Workshop that is open to any member who may wish to attend. Numbers are restricted to ensure I can give some individual support to people as needed.  Members are asked to book a place, which is allocated on a first come first served basis.

We make a specific piece of Jewellery at each workshop. This is specified beforehand so members can attend the Workshops that appeal to them. I have a large supply of beads, stringing materials, findings and the tools necessary to make the jewellery.  Members can bring their own supplies if they wish. Leading up to Christmas we make a range of Christmas themed jewellery and tree decorations. The Workshops are suitable for beginners and those who have some experience of jewellery making. 

The Workshops are very informal and aim to enable people to learn a new skill or hobby in a friendly and sociable environment and to have a piece of jewellery to take home at the end of the session.  There is a small fee to cover the cost of materials.

The Leader

I am not ‘qualified’ to teach beading, but I have been making jewellery for myself, family &  friends and for the odd Charity stall, for a several years and  I can help people learn the basic techniques of jewellery making.

I enjoy being able to make something unique to suit my style and outfits and people can learn the basics of jewellery making very easily. We all improve our skills as we work on projects together.  Anyone can, successfully make jewellery that is unique and individual to them.
