There will also be the opportunity to attend workshops. I’ll be running workshops on pearl stringing on Saturday 14th May 11.30 – 1.30 and Saturday 21st May 2.30 – 4.30. I’ll be teaching the knotting technique used for stringing pearls and other beads. You will also learn how to select the correct thread, needles and fittings for the task in order to create a professional-looking piece of jewellery. You will come away from the class with a freshwater pearl bracelet. All materials and tools will be provided.
