Fabric Beads workshop


This workshop has been cancelled

This is going to be a really fun workshop. The aim is to let rip and create some gorgeous fabric beads. No previous experience is necessary.

What  you need to bring Please bring some small sharp scissors and some sewing needles if you have them. You could also bring a selection of favourite  small buttons, beads and threads and any scraps of thin fabric. For instance you might want to incorporate a bit from a favourite old dress  or something someone gave you.

I will bring a whole host of  things for you to play with as well and if you don't own scissors or needles we will have some of those too

The cafe is closed  during the workshop so please bring a drink in a screw or close-able container'

The beads can be threaded at a later date or sewn onto  other things that you make.
