Seed Beads and Wire Tree – Make and Take Adults
Seed beads are uniformly shaped, spheroidal beads ranging in size from under a millimetre to several millimetres. They are most commonly used for loom and off-loom bead weaving. They may be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewellery. In this activity we combine them with metallic wire that can be used instead of a thread. The wire is a great material that can be modelled and shaped as you prefer, to create different interesting design effects.
Pebble or other flat object as base.
Thin metal wire.
Beads (any colour).

MAKE&TAKE ADULTS are creative workshop for adults, free and open to everybody. Every week there is a new activity and craft to explore. They are a great opportunity for people to practise creativity for the promotion of well-being: participants are invited to ‘play’ with materials without feeling the pressure of achieving something perfect. The sessions also offer the chance to socialise in a very friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere. Due to social distancing, the group is currently unable to meet, so we are offering simple tutorials for the weekly workshop, readjusting the original activity with materials and resources that people can easily find at home.
