Elemental Beading Retreats 2020

Two beadwork artists, a country house hotel and a long weekend of beading in great company.

My friend and fellow beadwork artist Melanie de Miguel and I, have been deeply busy behind the scenes organising our 2020 Elemental Beading retreats. We hold them in March (13-15th) and again in September (25th-27th). It starts with the beadwork. Following the success of our Tudor Inspirations concept, of beading elements that can be combined and recombined into infinite variations, we decided to give a whole new era of history our unique Elemental treatment.

Two brand new and gorgeously sparkly designs inspired by Art Deco are on the menu. Party like it’s 1920 in 2020! Our retreats are a little bit different, because along with the designs to be beaded, we give you bite size servings of design history. It takes months of research but the end result is a fascinating and fun packed beading experience.

At our Tudor themed retreats last year, we covered everything from food to palace intrigue, serving Elizabethan recipe cakes at break time, and handing out homemade pomanders filled with perfumed herbs and spices. Everyone also receive a cute goody bag filled with beading related treats. We have  lots of Deco inspired surprises for everyone this year too.

Places for our Divinely Deco Elemental Beading retreats are filling fast, but we can still squeeze a few more in (We have the hotel on speed dial ready to book more rooms). Last year we welcomed visitors from all over Europe and the USA, and if, like them, you’re coming from a distance, we can help you plan a longer visit. The venue is close to lots of amazingly English places of interest, with Bath, Bristol,Glastonbury, Stonehenge and the Cotswolds within in easy travelling distance.
