Come to Denman and its lovely grounds for a restful break from all the hectic festive preparations and indulge yourself by creating your own beaded Christmas decorations. Using tiny seed beads and lots of deliciously sparkly crystal beads you will create a beautiful beaded bauble, a beaded snowflake and light-catching beaded icicle to hang on your Christmas tree. They also make the ideal gift for loved ones that cannot be found in any shop, however, after all your efforts you may find it hard to part with them! This course is suitable for those with some beading experience. All equipment and materials can be purchased or borrowed from the tutor (cost is approx £20). However, students may like to bring some or all of the following: Equipment: Beading mat, beading needle and thread, ruler/tape measure, double-sided sticky tape, small sharp scissors. Materials: 3” diameter glass/plastic Christmas bauble, size 6/0, 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads, 3mm, 4mm, 6mm and 8mm crystal bicones or Czech facetted beads, 12mm and 25mm or 30mm bugle beads, 1 x 15mm drop bead, 2 x 15mm bead caps, 2 x 6mm crystal ‘Marguerite’ flower beads, 1 x 3.75” snowflake wire form with six arms. Note: It is advisable to use Swarovski where crystal is mentioned as the beads are of uniform size and have larger holes than cheaper beads.
