Welcome to the Dragon Beaders Website
We are a group of crafts people who love to bead near the Woking area in Surrey
We meet once a week Friday afternoons in the Lye Hall of St. John’s Memorial Hall from 1:30 to 3:30pm
We also have 2 Saturday meetings each year where we bead, (or sometimes knit) help each other,
eat cake and raise funds for the Woking Hospice.
Each year we put together a display of our work for the London Bead Show at Kempton Race Course – Sunbury
The next one is on Saturday February 7th 2016
If you would like more information or to come a long for a chat –
just e-mail me Gillian Lamb and I will give you some more details.
In 2005 we put together a project and entered the Beadworkers Guild Challenge.
We didn’t win, but you can see the piece called “First Frost” just to the right on this page.
There will be a section soonshowing how we all came together to plan and make this very exciting piece of beadwork.
It was a great triumph or collaboration and encompassed all members with differing skill levels
Once a year – in February we put together a display for The “The London Bead Show” at Kempton Race Course
We started way back in 2006 with just one display each year since the show was only a yearly event.
The show became a twice yearly event for several years, but now is back to a single show each February –
but we enjoy working hard to make different things and change the theme a bit each time.
Please do support them as best you can – they both have wonderful colour magazines several times a year and for a very
modest investment you can connect with other beaders and learn about the history of beading as well as new techniques.
