Dragon Beaders

Welcome to the Dragon Beaders Website

We are a group of crafts people who love to bead near the Woking area in Surrey

Starting September 2016 we will meet once a week on
Friday afternoons in the Lye Hall of St. John’s Village Memorial Hall from 1:30 to 3:30pm
This is £15.00 per month or £5.00 for the occasional visit
The hall is fairly close to both Woking and Guildford in Surrey

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.

Next Saturday Meeting :-  3rd December 2016
£10.00 and we may have a trader … watch this space.

If you need more details or have questions or maybe would like to come a long to bead or for a chat –
just e-mail me Gillian Lamb and we will give you a very warm welcome.

First FrostIn 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 soon 9hopefully!) showing 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

In past years we have put together displays for The “The London Bead Show” at Kempton Race Course – Sunbury
The last one was in February  2016
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 until reverting to the yearly show (and now no longer running)
but we enjoyed working hard to make different things and changed the theme a little bit each time.

We also support the UK beading community as much as we can and the links below will take you to the
Bead Society of Great Britain  and the Beadworkers Guild who are promoting the National Beading Week

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.
