Beadwork collection

The Guild are the proud owners of a small collection of beadwork, most of which has been donated by members past and present. The collection continues to grow and includes clothing, bags, purses, tassels, fringing, necklaces and decorative panels for the home - please see below.

During 2010, a selection of trims and tassels from the collection were used as inspiration for our Beading Festival event and since then it has been used for study days, allowing members to see the collection up close and personal - inspiration packed days studying the colours, patterns and techniques of times gone by.

If your bead group would like to book a Collection Study Day with the Guild, please contact

The Guild welcome donations, ensuring the preservation of the beadwork for future generations. If you have some beadwork that you would like to donate, please email Liz Thornton at:
