South & West Wales Bead Society


Are you interested in beads or beading -  in any shape or form?

Then why not join us at the South and West Wales Bead Society.

We are a new non-profit making Society, formed in 2002, committed to the furtherance of all types of beading, be it bead weaving, jewellery making or the use of beads in all types of crafts and mixed media embroidery.

Our aim is to meet other people who have an interest in beads, to exchange knowledge and to help one another progress. You will find that we offer a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to join us at out meetings, both the experienced beader and the complete beginner.

We hold monthly meetings (in the Swansea area) and regular workshops covering different beading techniques. Out workshops have projects to suit all levels of expertise – if you have never picked up a bead now is the time to start or if you are an experienced beader we will find something to challenge you!

Out annual membership fee is £15.00, with £2.00 per meeting being charged towards costs. You will receive a quarterly newsletter packed with interesting information, a free pattern and advance notice of events to be held both locally and nationally.

Visitors can join out meetings at costs of £2.00 per meeting, with a maximum of two meetings per year and we would be delighted to meet visitor’s from other beading societies. Whether you are a seasoned craftsperson, or a budding jewellery designer, or someone who just wants to have fun meeting other like-minded people, of all ages, whilst learning new skills and techniques we’d love to hear from you.
