Medway Beaders - an informal, fun beading group in Medway, Kent

About Us

Local beaders from the Medway area wanted a place to meet, chat, bead and get advice.  Medway Beaders was created in 2012 and is now open to new members.  

Our Group

We meet at Sun Pier House CIC Rochester High Street, once a month. Meetings are on the last Sunday and are from 1.30-4.30pm.  Monthly subscription is £5.

We exhibited our beadwork at The Kent Bead Fair in March 2013, 2014, 2015 (Ashford) and had a stand at The Big Bead Show in April 2013 (Sandown).

Dee Wingrove-Smith now offers 1-2-1 tuition from her home at weekends.  

If you are interested in learning beadwork and prefer to learn on this basis then please contact Dee using the Contact section above for more details.  

Fee for two hours is £20 and will include materials.
