We are very excited to have a new tutor, Clair Rigby, joining the Ministry of Craft team. Clair is going to be teaching BEADED JEWELLERY: INTRODUCTION TO BEADWORK.

After learning to bead in 2011, Clair developed what can only be called an obsession for teeny, tiny seed beads and seriously, sparkly Swarovski!

Clair will be sharing her skills in bead 'weaving' - using a specialist needle and thread to stitch lots of teeny, tiny seed beads to each other to form a new shape! Under Clair’s instruction, customers will create their own pendant and matching earrings using some basic beadwork stitches. With a choice of colours available, there will be something to suit everyone! Sound exciting? Sign up here!

Clair has developed a selection of tutorials and kits that are available from her etsy store, Obstinate Pursuit.
