Abbey Road Beaders – Byzantine Cross workshopMelanie de Miguel
I spent a brilliant weekend in Nottingham, with the Abbey Road Beaders teaching my Byzantine Cross workshop. I was treated to a lovely warm welcome, super hospitality and generosity – we had such a laugh. One of the many great things I love about workshops is how close we all become and the sharing of not only beads and techniques, but life experiences; I’m continually blown away by the courage people show in their day to day lives and find it humbling but also truly inspiring.
Once again I was loving everyone’s colour combinations! I’ll be putting images of finished pieces on my Students’ Work page.
Finally at the end of the workshop, I was stunned but absolutely delighted as they presented me with these 2 gorgeous bouquets of flowers. My journey home was made all the more pleasant with the fresh scent of the flowers. When I got home and put them in the vases, I really had the opportunity to see them properly and, I have to say, I adore the beautiful, decorative cabbages with rose-tipped, pale cream petals – divine!
