Bloom Where You’re Planted

If you’ve been anywhere near a garden centre, you know that there are flats of bright colourful flowers, herbs and other greenery ready for your home garden.

BeadFX classes are blooming too. Whether you’re a Seed Bead Snapdragon, a Wirework Water Lily or a Metalwork Marigold, we have a class or open session for you!

As a matter of interest, gardening and crafts have similar benefits for adults:

  • Encourages use of all motor skills
  • Learning new skills challenges the brain and promotes problem-solving
  • Reduces stress levels and promotes relaxation
  • Improves wellbeing as a result of social interaction
  • Promotes self-esteem
