I was fortunate to spend Friday and Saturday doing two beading Masterclasses with Jill Devon of The Bead Merchant. The workshops where organised by Cath who I attend other classes with at Robin Hoods Bay she had started a local group who bead the 1st Saturday of the month and call themselves the Bandroom Beaders as they meet in a band room. The location is in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors in the middle of nowhere in a Village called Farndale down a very narrow road!, Took me about 1 hr 15 mins to Drive there both days the weather was glorious so the views where spectacular on the top of Sutton Bank.
On Friday we did the Alston Lariat there was 5 colour ways to choose from I did the above it has a grey background and is embellished with coloured beads which do not show up the band is right angle weave. You can also adapt it to make a bracelet.
Saturday we did the Tudor Rose workshop there where 3 Colour ways my Choice is in the picture below. There was more right angle weave I think Jill rather dose like this stitch.
As you can see I really got alot done over the 2 days!!!
Here is my retail therapy more beads and 2 necklace kits to add to my already large stash. I had a lovely 2 days with the ladies if I can get myself organised and request some Saturdays off I might go and join the group.
