A weekend residential beading course at Zinc Arts on the London/Essex border. Course fees include tuition and use of workroom, all meals and refreshments, an en suite bedroom for single occupancy and free wifi. Spend a relaxing weekend making beautiful beaded jewellery with just beads and thread.
Your tutor, Olive, has an ever growing selection of easy to follow patterns for you to use, with explanation diagrams as well as words. Whether new to beading or more experienced, you will quickly be able to complete a first piece of jewellery before moving on to something more complex. And you will probably take home several pieces of completed work to wear or give as gifts along with some wonderful memories of time spent with like minded people. This weekend is ideal for beginners and beading improvers alike. Olive has been teaching Bead Needle Weaving for over 20 years. She taught for Liberty Sewing School and at Missenden Abbey, along with many other Adult Education Centres. She has almost unlimited patience, and a good sense of humour. Olive is a specialist advisor to City & Guilds, and has taught the Level 2 syllabus from its inception.
