********************************************************

Thank you to everyone who came along to our July 2012 School Holiday workshops. 

The two age groups created magnificent pieces. It's so exciting to see design styles emerging at this age and so interesting to see personal character unknowingly expressed in bead selection. 
Age 5+ group made beautiful beaded necklaces, cute beaded rings and drop earrings.
Age 10+ group created charm bracelets with a gorgeous little beaded flower charm on the end and long triple drop earrings.

Thank you to the fantastic Damien and Seona at The Foodrinkery for the use of their fine establishment.
The communal table turned craft bench was perfect for the girls to get creative at.
