Berkshire Beaders

 

A beading group based in Reading, Berkshire, who meet regularly once a month and for occasional workshops.

When do Berkshire Beaders meet?

All meetings are between 7:00 and 9:30pm, on the fourth Monday of each month - unless that day is a Bank Holiday, or too close to Easter, Christmas or New Year.

This page will display meetings for January to March, April to June, July to September or October to December, as we decide on what we'll do three months in advance.

First meeting is free!

You can come along to one meeting for free before deciding whether you would like to become a member. Just turn up and introduce yourself!
