Members, Sell Your Beads on the GBUK Table at Flame off

Members have the opportunity to sell their beads on the GBUK table at Flame Off.


We will have limited amount of space available on the stand for this. They will be taken on a first come, first served basis but anyone volunteering can have their own space (free of charge) to sell beads for the duration of their time on the stand. We will charge £2.50 per ‘slot’, a slot being a square compartment measuring 3 inches square and 1¼ deep. Members may ‘buy’ up to three of these for the duration of the two days. If you would like to take advantage of this, please bring your beads on the day.

This a great way to test your toes in the arena of selling your beads for those of you who have never tried before or those that do sell and would like to have some for sale at Flame Off without the expense of a stand.

Newsflash: Flame Off call for volunteers; sell your beads; Marshall Hyde at Studio 19

GBUK will have a table at Flame Off and as always we need volunteers to run the stand for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will be grateful if anyone going could spare an hour to help out. Please let us know!

Once again we will also be making a limited amount of space available on the stand for members’ beads for sale. These will be taken on a first come, first served basis but anyone volunteering can have their own space (free of charge) to sell beads for the duration of their time on the stand. We will charge £2.50 per ‘slot’, a slot being a square compartment measuring 3 inches square and 1¼ deep. Members may ‘buy’ up to three of these for the duration of the two days.

Beads can be brought straight to Flame Off but the slot would need booking in advance to guarantee your space. Beads need to be tagged with name and price, plus an inventory. To book, please contact chairman@gbuk.org.

Marshall Hyde will be teaching at Studio 19 on Saturday 23rd March, as a kind of ‘pre-Flame Off warm-up’!

The class is called ‘Designing and Thinking in Glass: Beyond Technique’ or ‘Discover what you already know: How to make the work you always wanted with skills you didn’t know you had’. Definitely something a bit different!

The cost will be a bargain £60. To book a place, please send a £30 deposit to Di, either by paypal to dianaeast@glass2wear.com or by cheque.

More details can be found on Di’s website: http://www.glass2wear.com/?page_id=561
