Students teach beading masterclass
DAISY Davies reckons she will enjoy the chance to make beads from recycled paper after learning the craft at the Peace Festival Remade Remnants Workshop yesterday.
Mrs Davies said she bought a lot of beads on a recent holiday but hadn't made paper beads until the workshop yesterday in the dining room at the School of Total Education.
“I enjoy making beads,” Mrs Davies said.
“The girls (instructors) are very clever.
“I have previously bought books about paper beads.”
SOTE Year 8 student Rita Bradshaw and Year 9 student Lauren Yuile were the instructors.
“I was taught how to make paper beads by my teacher Ronda Mattarollo earlier this year,” Rita said.
“This is the first workshop I have done and it has been awesome, everyone enjoyed themselves.
“I love crafts and going to the jewellery and bead shops at the markets.”
Organiser Ruth Power said the workshop yesterday was the fourth held on a monthly basis.
“We have scrapbooking and paper making workshops coming up and will continue the workshops until the Peace Festival in April when we may have a stall.”
Many necklaces made yesterday were from old magazines and phone books. Information from Mrs Power on 46615420 or 0438 661 632.
