Join Vicky to make one of our oldest and most popular bauble designs. Available in a range of colours to suit everyone’s Christmas décor this bauble is perfect for those new beaders who want to dip their toes in to the world of Spellbound Festive Beading. You should complete the project in the workshop, but if not we will cover everything you will need to do to finish the bauble at home. There will be a 30 minute lunch break and 30 minutes to indulge in some bead shopping at the end of the day.
We hope to add more dates early next year. If there is something you would like to learn with us please let us know.
Important Booking Info
All workshop prices include the materials you will use in your class, and illustrated worksheets of the techniques and designs you have learned to take home with you.

There will be a maximum of eight people in a workshop. Children from 9 to 15 must be accompanied by a participating adult.
We regret due to us being in an old building full of steps we are not fully accessible. The workshops are held on the ground floor but there is a steep step between the workshop area and the bathroom.
To book a place please call us on 01543 417650. Workshop fees are payable in full to secure a place and this is non-refundable.
If you are part of a group and would like to book a day or half day just for you we can put on a workshop for groups of 8 people.
We are sorry we are unable to offer children’s birthday parties.
