Exhibition and FREE drop in!

At Beads & Biscuits we’ve still got the beading bug! Our project started during International Beading Week last year and we’ve been making all manner of bugs for our exhibition this year.

There are butterflies, dragonflies and ladybirds galore, as well as caterpillars and moths. The bugs have been used in all sorts of ways, such as necklaces, earrings and floral displays. There is also a display of butterflies made using a wirework technique – a new one to most of us. Make sure you come and have a look and be inspired to bead something different.

To get you in the mood, you can join us at our FREE Drop In table and make your very own dragonfly charm. There is no need to book, just wait for an empty seat and join in the fun.
