10.30 - 4pm
Necklace with handmade beads made by a student at my workshop

My workshops are very informal, just 4-5 people. We use my little Warwickshire cottage, and the workshop runs from 10.30 - 4pm.
In that time you will learn how to make and shape the beads using my unique recipe based on paper pulp. Then the fun mounts as you choose how to colour the beads, a great adventure into the joy of putting colours and textures together.
I also have a collection of old beads which can be combined with your handmade ones. Once the beads are dry, the magic starts as you see them on the thread. Elastic is used as it is so quick and easy, and so much more convenient to put on.
We end up with a little exhibition of all that has been made, and everybody is amazed and delighted by what they have produced. Suitable for most ages - 10 upwards. And...... enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch.
