Our annual fun filled festival of all things beady!
SATURDAY 16TH JUNE 9AM - 5PM
The theme for this year’s BeadFest is “Goddesses” – Think Aphrodite, Lakshmi, Venus….any deity will do! Goddesses have been linked with virtues such as beauty, love, motherhood and fertility. Everyone who comes dressed as a Goddess (or God) will receive a goody bag & there will be a prize for the best dressed beader!
Minty the Spoilt Rotten Beads Campervan will be on show and Wild Girl Henna will be attending, so you can have a goddess themed temporary Henna Tattoo on the day!
The workshops will take place in the studio and also in the beautiful arabian marquee.
