2018 Beading Weekends

Join our beginners Beadwork Weekends in association with Mrs MagootyBeadwork is the art of weaving beads (usually small seed beads) using needle and thread.  There are several basic stitches that underpin beadwork techniques.  Each introduction to beadwork weekend will cover one of these stitches, making several gorgeous pieces.

Tutor Mairi Carlton has been teaching beading in the West of Scotland for many years and runs the extremely popular Beadwildered beadwork group in Glasgow.  She is also on the board of the Beadworkers Guild of Great Britain and regularly teaches at the Great British Beading Show.

Spirals – Friday 31st August – Sunday 2nd September 2018

Weaving beads into Spirals is a sure fire way to get hooked on beading!  On this weekend, beaders will start with Spiral Staircase, a simple but beautiful stitch using miyuki Japanese seed beads which will work up into a necklace and then on the Saturday afternoon a bracelet using Dutch Spiral.  On the Sunday beaders will make a soft herringbone spiral bracelet and also have the opportunity to explore Spiral Lace.

On both of these weekends beaders will go away with 4 patterns taught in class plus a couple more to keep going along with many ideas of how to adapt and explore the stitches.  Each beader will get a starter kit which will have everything needed for the weekend, plus a small amount of beads to keep going at home.

There will also be a small pop up shop in the class, provided by www.mrsmagooty.co.uk should beaders want to buy other beads/colour ways for future projects.

Weekends are priced £329 per person and include:

  • Accommodation in Gartmore House
  • Full board – breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Expert beading tuition by Mairi Carlton and all materials required for the course (top quality Japanese seed beads and Swarovski crystals)
