National Beading Week has arrived!
Running from July 29th to August 6th, National Beading Week is the brainchild of the Beadworkers Guild, and is aimed at bringing beadworkers together. Whatever your skill level, from complete novice to longtime beader there is something for you. For more information about events running nationally (and for the first time this year, internationally) check out the National Beading Week website here: http://www.nationalbeadingweek.co.uk/
What is happening at Spellbound?
One to One workshops – We are running special taster workshops for National Beading Week and they have been booking up very fast. We have just a few spaces left now on Thursday and Friday.
What are they? If you would love to have a go at beading but just don’t know where to start they are perfect. Just book a time slot with one of our expert tutors and they will take you through making either a pair of earrings, a floating necklace, a bracelet with a choice of fasteners or a small bag charm.
Sessions need to be booked in advance, cost £5 and you get a £5 gift voucher to spend in the shop when you come for your taster workshop.
For more info see the Workshop Page
Also for National Beading Week – if you book one of our regular workshops being held this week (Revelling in Rivolis is on Saturday August 5th and there are still a couple of places left) you will also receive a £5 gift voucher to spend in the shop when you come for your workshop.
