The Beading Group meets once a month at a member's home in Mabe; we are a small group - there are five of us but we could take another one or two people, if anyone is interested. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of beading but the ability to thread a needle would help. We meet on a Tuesday morning from 10 a.m-12 noon. We mostly try and follow a pattern but the next time we meet, we are doing a variation of 'Bead Soup'.
Bead Soup is where all the members of a group are given the same number and colour of beads and they go and make whatever they want with them. We have all written our names on a piece of paper with our 4 favourite colours, we mixed up the papers, picked one and will go and buy beads up to the value of £10 for the person named on the paper and next time, give that person the beads and see what they can then make with the given beads!
If you'd like to join us, please ring me, Moira on (01326) 319024 or click here to access my email address!
The Crafts group meet at members' homes around Truro on the second and fourth Wednesdays at 2:00pm. Please contact Jean Thorning for further information on (01872) 275461 before first attending.
