Using authentic quality vintage glass beads, mixing them with beautiful modern crystal/lampwork/glass beads and findings you will learn the step by step process of designing and making a vintage-inspired bracelet and earrings, possibly a few pairs.
You will learn about vintage jewellery and some of the history behind it. This will help in giving you inspiration for your own designs and teach you about some of the techniques that were and still are used. Each person in the workshop will be supplied with tools a beading board and beading mat to use whilst creating their pieces.
The classes are very relaxed and you will leave the workshop with your handcrafted jewellery to proudly wear or give away as a gift. Also have the confidence to create other pieces at home or at one of our more advanced jewellery workshops.
Please feel free to bring along with you any loose beads that you would like to recycle and make into something new and wonderful but don’t worry if you don't have any - you can use ours!
We have a range of volunteering opportunities on offer. For as little as a couple of hours you could help out with the remnant shop, show visitors around or take sales from the gift shop, we would love to welcome you onboard!
