After the AGM there will be a few workshops:

Richard Downton will be running the photography workshop – bring your own camera and discover what you can achieve in photographing your beads.

Scarlet Leonard will be doing a workshop on using social media and search engine optimisation.

There will be a swap table for you to bring along glass, tools, etc for you to exchange goodies.

Di East’s studio will be open for torch time. We are waiving the previously-announced fee for torch time to encourage everyone to have a play and there will be mini demonstrations by some lampworkers.

Bring a bead for the bead swap!

Bead competition

Theme: ‘Best of British’

Beads need to be brought on the day.
Please give your entry to June Scott before or immediately after the AGM.
Beads will be anonymous for voting, but June needs to know it’s yours!
Voting will be one vote per attendee and the beads with the most votes will win. We have some goodies for the winner and two runners-up.
