    Bead ‘n’ Blether

    Crafts Programme By Tina Kardasinska 2 Comments

    A short break in the blethering for a Masterclass in cluster-bead-work with Tina – we are thinking statement necklaces – big and bold! Master-classes are part of our on-going commitment to our peer support groups through the Creative Steps programme. Job done! Blethering can re-commence! Great work!
    Skills sharing from members of the group is another great way to try new techniques – thanks to Ellen for the Kumihimo technique – so many talents in this group!
