About the Course

Spend a lovely week enjoying the food, accommodation, surroundings and the company of others whilst learning and practicing a range of art and craft skills on offer at Flatford Mill. The course will be hosted by Claire Madder who will also be running a day workshop on beadweaving during the week. Carole Gray will be visiting for the day to give participants the opportunity to turn their hand to stained glass techniques and Deb Hart will be on hand during the week providing guidance on willow weaving. Evenings will be very informal after dinner, with opportunities to see what our bookbinding students are getting up to and perhaps finishing off projects from that day.

Bring a friend!

If you are attending a course at Flatford Mill at the sole occupancy price, we are offering a special rate for a friend or partner not enrolled on the course to also stay at £50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast.

Claire has been beading for 20 years and is a member of the Beadworkers Guild with whom she is an ambassador for International Bead Week and the Bead Society. She has travelled the UK, Czech Republic and USA in search of new beads and techniques. Beads have taken over a whole room in her house, much to the amusement of family and friends. Claire also works full time for FSC Flatford Mill.
